  1. Very nice tying! Where did you get this pattern? It doesn't match up with any of Glasso's patterns. This must be your variation?
  2. I agree with Mark. I have been having the same problem. Will not buy their brand any more.
  3. Horseshoes, by all means post them. There is also a spin-off of this forum. It is www.classicflytying.com and has a streamer & wet fly section. Full of postings of classic streamers by some of the best tyers out there. Also, a site devoted strictly to streamer tying is www.streamerlist.com (this is the best site). Good luck, I look forward to seeing some of your flies.
  4. If you are looking for great tyers who have published books, I don't see Uncle Dickie Talleur, who just passed away last year, and the Master Bob Veverka who is still alive and kicking. Dick published many books and videos, and Bob has been in Bates books and published his own on Spey flies.
  5. Very nice and simple! I will definetely give them a try this spring.
  6. One of two flies I tied up for my Florida fishing buddy.
  7. Okay Salty, I really appreciate the advice. Here it is with an Epoxy head. Think I will stick with the compact wing though. may tie another one with a fanned out profile. Cheers, Joel
  8. A new addition to the fly pattern database has been submitted by joelst: SW Mickey Finn
  9. THANKS!!!!!!!This a great post! wonderful sites and info. i will be checking them out the next couple of weeks for sure. Am going down to the Ft. Myers, Naples area in May and need to get some flies ready. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Joelst
  10. Frank, Great job!Always a treat to see your work. I just bgot back on this forum after a long absence over on the long hhok place. Joelst
  11. I would say that you have Spey flies down pat. Very excellent and unusual tie! Joelst
  12. Not much I can add. Wonderful tie, and as Frank says, great flow! Joelst :yahoo:
  13. Wicked looking spey! Excellent job tying, and great use of colors. This is how a spey should look in my book! :yahoo:

    If you are going to buy some Toluene, then get a tube of Household Goop, thin it with the toluene, and you have almost the same thing as Softex. Use just like Epoxy. Cheers, Joelst
  15. Frank, Excellent job! best I have seen in a long time. Even us old timers need a refresher course now and then from you young whippersnappers! Are you going to tie at the TGFF in sept.? I am on the list and look forward to going back. Hope you will be there. Now I just need to get time for spey flies. been doing a lot of Saltwater tying for a friend of mine. Cheers, Joel
