  1. Tidewaterfly.....you BETTER get to tyin' NOW........trust me, once you retire.......you'll have even less time. :hyst: :help: :dunno: in that order.
  2. Tye every day if at all possible..........last couple/few years i seem to fish less and less (always on the road)...........although this year weren't bad at all.......did quite a bit, and also fished maybe a dozen new rivers for the first time(s), and an incredable lake up in Canada. Yeah, '08 kicked butt. mark..... p.s., i'd keep tyin' even if they outlawed fishin;...........
  3. Shez, that's Pilgaard, not Pillgard.
  4. It's Super Cool Rocky.....i can dig it Bro. Lovely. i agree with Claudia completely. Take care, mark..... Btw Rocky, your developing a recognizeable style all of your own now.....that's very good. Keep it up Bro. :thumbsup:
  5. Good deal then........hope you sell as many as you'd like. Good luck, mark.....
  6. It's commin' along pretty good.....startin' to get filled up nicely. Keep up the great work. mark.....
  7. Now that's cute. Have you fished it yet? That gape is pretty well blocked by the egg.....but that might not be a problem.....if it does turn out not to work so well.....just put the egg on top the hook. Good fishing. mark.....
  8. Thankx again for the pics.......very interestng approach you have there. Keep up the great work. mark.....
  9. supafly.....go over to the "other" site http://www.classicflytying.com and go the Streamers&Wets page and look for a post called "a few recent wets" by Mike Schmidt, (Redwings1).........there's a fly there with a Mallard wing..........(one in a set, in the pic).....THAT, is what i'm saying you should parctice. Try learning how to do those type flies.......it will help you with allllll your other tying tremendously. Give it a shot. And good luck. mark.....
  10. Hey Bro, aint no biggie.........just the straight up honest turff. Wiff two ff's. You dig? mark...... p.s. have a good time at the Birthday Party.
  11. Anyone wanna see the pics Alberto posted.........they're at the CFT site on the Lodge page. Go see. mark.....
  12. YOU GOT IT R.W. .....aint nothin' to it. mark.....
  13. Steve, i know Doug from where he works in Montana. i see him a couple times a year whenever i'm in that fly shop..........it's one of the best in Montana. George Anderson's, in Livingston.....right on the Yellowstone. The Yellowstone is my favorite BIG river in Montana.........and Livingston is where it turns east. It runs north out of "The Park" until it hits Livingston where it turns east............LOTS of fish Bro. Cutts, Bows, Browns, Cuttbows, and Whitefish........locate yourself in Livingston and from there, your only a half hour to Bozeman, (the Gallatin, and East Gallatin), to the west.....a half hour to the Shields, to the east and another half hour further to the east to the Boulder.....and allll the famous Spring Creeks are right there.....Nelsons, De Puy's, Armstrongs.....along the road to "The Park, (one hour south).....plus Mill Creek is along that road. And as soon as you get in "The Park" you can go hit the Lamare, Soda Butte and Slew Creek. And there's so much more but the thing is.....Livingston is a GREAT place to get yourself a place for the summer or whatever and just fish your way alllll around it in any direction. Montana is HUGE......and there are so many rivers.........it's STUPID.......but i can't think of a better place to be situated and fish from, than Livingston...........there are others, Dillon.....West Yellowstone.....and i've done 'em all.....but i prefere to stay in Livingston and fish outta there. Plus the Internationl Fly Fishing Museum is there, and real good resturants, a good car-wash, bout 5 top notch fly shops, and good shopping for boots, etc. NO sales tax in Montana......... :yahoo: Ya gotta check it out Bro. Life's to short not to. Do it while your young and while they still haven't totally ruined Montana. I been goin' there every year since 2002, and it's changed a lot just in that time. They over-developing it like mad.........if you snooze, you looze. Go now.....while you can still be, "Haunted by Waters." mark.....
  14. VERY VERY nice tye Jens......... R.W. Poul Jorgensen used the same feathers you do for his G.P. fly. i like them as well............. B.B., i used to raise chickens amoung many other birds.....(i had birds for almost 5 years), and some of them were Silver Laced Whyendotts.....that is the bird those feathers come form. There are also Golden Laced Whyendotts which i also had. Instead of White and Black, their feathers are brownish/gold and black. Btw, Henery Hoffman won the Bus Buzeck Award this year at the FFF International Conclave. Or was that last year.............lol. Anyway, he's a recent recipiant. And well deserved imho. mark.....
  15. TKX. Steve.....yeah, that's me.....my wife Misako took all the pics cept for the one's she's in. See you at the reception on Fri. (we may not get there til bout 8 p.m., set-up at the fairgrounds starts at 5 p.m.), night 6 p.m. at Buddies Pub and Grill in Holt, Michigan or Sat. at the fairgrounds in Mason. Later, mark.....
