  1. I run my own company building furniture, I have a wife and 2 children under 5. I manage about 3-4 hours a week, mostly on the weekends, or after the kids go to bed.
  2. DK Barracuda here, I have tied on it for about 8 years and do not regret it a bit. I will say that I do actually use the rotary feature when tying. It's great for hackle, body met. etc. I may be a little ahead because rather than learning on a non-rotary, and then switching, I learned on a rotary from the begining.
  3. I beg to differ but the plural of "yall" is "youins" As in: Youins gooin down by de river? I echo the coment about board flyfisherman!!!!
  4. I pulled out a Metz #1 grizzley saddle that I recieved in trade several months ago, only to find that allmost all of the smaller (sz. 14, 16, 18) feathers seem to be folded along their leganth. When I try to wrap the feather the quill wraps on fine but the barbs spike up on both sides of the quill with a pronounced valley in the middle. On the skin it looks like one side of the quill is stripped b/c the barbs are folded against themselves. I am a new member, but not a new tyer, but I have never seen this. Does anybody know if there is a way to correct this? Thanks
