  1. Great flies guys. All well tied. Thanks Bob for including me. I hope you feel better.
  2. Opened my envelope and no flies. Just this...
  3. Bob Our friends wanted to go out for Mexican. There are loads of authentic great places. They chose Charanda, a chain. There was an Asian chef and kitchen manager. Not a single Latino or a Latina to be found. That was a good carnitas......... not from Charanda.
  4. www.armslist.com for your area
  5. Thank you Bob Nelson! Great swap and thank you for the extras! GREAT flies everyone! Vicrider thank you for the compliment. They do work very well in slow deep pools.
  6. LOL That was quick. Actually I mailed them from from Concord, NC the home of NSCAR. The stains were real, I managed to score a Popeyes chicken sandwich. No fights in line and they weren't sold out. The hype is well worth it. Hope you like the odd extras.

    Pike n' Burbot

    Something that Mark Knapp posted. "We don't have snakeheads." Bowfin are not snakeheads. They are often confused and some people think they are the same fish. They do look similar, but they are not the same. https://www.njfishandwildlife.com/images/fishing/invasives/invasive_snakehead.gif We have both in South Carolina. Sankeheads should be killed according to our DNR. They ask to make sure that you don't kill native Bowfin. In Montana while night fishing I caught burbot. My fishing partner thought I was nuts until I steamed them and served them with melted butter. Burbot taste better than pike IMHO
  8. There was a huge Hoechst Celanese plant was in Rock Hill, SC. It smelled like vinegar from time to time. They made acetate fiber. I have quite a bit of old Herters floss. I used to have the can of nymph solvent too. The colors are still better than today. Even treated, the floss developed a translucence when wet that you don't see with new materials.
  9. Yes. I would like caddis for Christmas. Thanks Bob for the invite. I would like to try something I saw years ago. A cased caddis with a real sand body.
  10. I would go with Art Flick "Streamside Guide" or Mike Valla "Tying Catskill Style Dry Flies", but there are many other great ones.
  11. This is a great source. Used books from the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum http://books.cffcm.com/
