  1. Another beautiful fly on a nice hook.
  2. From what I can see the whole sale fly hooks are like Dai-Riki were.
  3. I should have said that my leader are off 5 foot furled leaders. Rick
  4. I wrap the individual strands on different thread spools. Takes a little time, but it works. Then I can use them on a bobbin.
  5. 2 color worm size 10 hook, chenille color choice, wrap another chenille over hook shank, used estaz here. originals were tied longer, but these match the size I see falling out of trees here.
  6. Almost all my fly fishing is for warmwater fish I have been going with 4 or 6 lb mono for straight leads. Still catch fish soit seems towork.
  7. Never started, but jelly beans are another thing.
  8. You can tie soft hackle flies using the floss for the body. Rick
  9. When I bought my first flyrod from a Hardware store closing out he gave me two round plastic containers with flies and poppers in them. Used them for about 6 months and then got into tying. Rick
  10. San Juan worm furled from some unmarked material I have.
  11. If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull, but that's not the worst of it; My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close. My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather. My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently. But here's the worst of it... Almost every time I sneeze, cough, or sputter; either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!
  12. Also tye them perpendicular to the hook. Crazy twist on the drop and gills like it. Rick
