    Zippered boots

    You can get flats or similar boots to go over stocking foot waders. I use them with fins for my float tube. You will need to get them in a larger size. However they are anything but easy to get on. They are made to fit snugly and neoprene against stretchy neoprene can make it a struggle.

    Zippered boots

    I don't know where you are going, but I can't imagine you would be happy with flats boots for river wading. I had the Orvis zippered boots, they were great but I think they are discontinued. I now have Korkers with the boa. They are very easy to put on and take off. Simms also has boots with the boa system.
  4. I would use Elk. But give the Deer hair you have a try.

  7. Beautiful Quill Gordons!👍👍
  8. Interesting find. I'll take a better look at it when I have more time. I have a hard copy of Herter's 'Professional Fly Tying and Spinner Lure Making Manual'. It includes the statement "More copies have been sold of this book than any other book in the world ever written about fly tying, or fly fishing or any sporting subject."

  12. I have used the regular jaws. They seemed to work fine for me. I didn't even know they had special shank jaws.
  13. I'm sure most of the time you can get by without wings, however I think wings can be important. Yes trout can see the wings. In fact the tips of the wings are the first part of the fly, after surface dimples, that becomes visible to the trout. Remember that Art Flick's Variants weren't just Catskill flies without wings. They were a style with very long hackles.
