    Ordering from Day5

    Just wanted to give Matt (Day5) some props for his store. :yahoo: Fast shipping, great products and good people! :headbang: However, If you are like a kid in candy store when it comes to getting new things in the mail, and to save yourself the pain....Please let ALL metal object's that have been sitting in sub freezing temperatures to warm up for a few hours before handling them :whistle: Thanks again Matt, Todd

    Hook poll

    I've as well been using Mustad, but for over 22 years....and have them older than that. In that time i've maybe had up to a dozen deformed hooks but never any failures. However besides Mustad, the only other hook i like is Gamakatsu, because i've never really had a problem with them either.
  5. Steam or the combination of steam and book
  6. Perfect time for steelies :yahoo:
  7. Happy B-Day :headbang:

    Eye Strain

    I use one and have a hard time using one without now. I think it does allow you to concentrate on the fly more, and it gathers light for you, putting it behind the fly. Try propping a piece of paper behind your next fly and you'll see what i mean.

    my husband

    Is that Steve's member # ???? No wonder he's MIA......He knew what was coming through a recon mission :ripped: :hyst:
  11. Looks familiar.....My daughters do the same thing. You get some of the best, most intense looks from them while tying i'd bet too.
  12. A buddy of mine was thinking the same thing when he had his Cannon (even going from a XTI to a 30D? I think those were the models).....That it was too light and felt 'flimsy' was the word he used. Now he has a few Nikon's...a D80 and a D2x which after seeing some pics he's done i'm looking at the D80 with a 135mm lens for myself. :headbang:

  14. Your best bet would be to search through the data here for fly submissions and postings of and about tube flies. Also, and an option is to search the net and to try www.tubeflies.com for patterns and other info pertaining to them. Other info can be obtained from various books, namely Tube Flies: A Tying, Fishing & Historical Guide by Mark Mandell & Les Johnson which is a good read. Other than that and with vises, HMH will probably be the best and most cost effective way getting into tying tubes. I personally only have the starter tool, which will soon be replaced by a HMH premium tube vise because after tying on an actual "tube vise" and not an adapter, to me it's just soo much better. HMH also makes a Spinner Tube Vise at just over $100 bucks which looks pretty good. And as Blueman says, start on some easier patterns because it will become easier with just a bit of time. However, and when you get into the different metal tubes, the heavier tubes will sustain just about as much damage as if you were to use a regular fly.
