  1. Congratulation to all the winners. Really great fly tying. RC.
  2. I went to their website and read about the vice. One interesting feature...one side of the jaw is magnetized to hold the hook in place while closing the jaws. Thinking about magnetizing my vice jaws. Anyone have experience with this? RC
  3. Geroge: Know that both you and Debbie have Sherry and my prayers. Keep the faith. Jim
  4. I'm with J.R. Although I have not tied over 100,000 flies, I have been tying flies since 1982 and have never had a problem with Mustad hooks. Never broke one while de-barbing; never had one break while taking it out of the vice. Sorry guys....I like em! I use em! I catch fish on em! RC
  5. If I understand your question right--it depends on what resolution a particular screen is set at. That is one of the challenges of making web sites that can be viewed by the many monitors, browsers and setups that the millions of computer users. this link might help answer your question. http://www.boutell.com/newfaq/creating/anyresolution.html RC
  6. Hi CharlieB. I have been a member here for about a year now and have learned so much. I'm sure you will too. Welcome. RC
  7. John, did you ever find the bamboo you were wanting to buy? Just curious if the Germany source worked out. Or if you found another place to buy bamboo in Europe. RC
  8. Hi John, depending on where you live in Europe, you may be able to order tonkin from this rod builder in Germany: Rutenbauwerkstatt Michael H├╝lsenbeck Am Walde 1a D-42929 Wermelskirchen 3 Tel: (0049)-0-2196-89311 Fax: (0049)-0-2196-702304 Mail: [email protected] http://www.mbamboo.com/ I am an American living in Austria. Have not ordered myself but, hear that he is reputable shop. Also heard of a rod builder in France who sells cane but don't have the contact. Hope this helps. RC
  9. I've wanted to know how to do that for some time. Thanks for the tutorial. Will give it a shot. RC
  10. Congratulations! This June will be 24 for my wife and me. Best years of my life. RC
  11. Congratulations! What a great site. Have learned so much. Thanks for all your hard work. RC
  12. Thanks for your replies. Makes sense. Still learning RC
  13. Your opinion requested...what do you think...when refering to the list of materials needed to tie a given fly, is that list of materials a "recipe" or a "pattern?"
  14. RC its Taneycomo...you will love it. Let me know when you are down this way and I can help you with directions, flys, even meet you there...Dano Thanks Dano. I'll let you know. RC
