  1. Try canadianllama.com $4.50/100 beads and very good quality.
  2. Another place on line for 'gill patterns is the warm water fly tyer. His black lace Mcginty is killer. For top water you can find a yellow foam spider on line that is cheap, easy to tie, and very effective. I love to catch them on top but it is my experience that the ones on the surface are usually the smaller ones. Just my $.02 worth.
  3. In the mail. I could not decide between chart or black so I sent a doz of each. I usually start with chart for pan fish and switch to black on days they don't seem to want the chart. I have also caught trout on the black. -Tom
  4. :wallbash: Sorry for the double post. I'm in with a pus bug.
  5. Your deer hair work is beautiful.
  6. I received some great flys in today's mail. Thanks to everyone and to Paul for hosting! I will try some of them this weekend for sure. Tight lines and heavy creels -Tom
  7. WHAT A MESS Paul I owe you and everyone else an apology for being so tardy. This morning I decided to head cement the flys to make them more durable. (I rarely use it on my own) I had 9 of them done when I knocked over the bottle of head cement and ruined all the rest. I am retying them now. I will mail them tomorrow and add the postage for next day delivery. I hope you can wait the extra day. They are bubble wing emer4gers. They really catch fish and float like a cork. tight lines and heavy creels -Tom :down:
  8. I usually get mine from feather-craft. -Tom
  9. I usually use JStockard or Feather-Craft. Today though I called in an order to Chris Helm at Whitetail Fly Tieing. He frequently has that really hard to find item and you can get plenty of advice from an expert tyer. -Tom
  10. It has been way to long since I have been in a swap! So I'm in. Next person swiss straw.
  11. Clay It is one of my go to flys for gills. I always carry some in my panfish box. It has also caught me several nice accidental crappies. I have had no problem with durablity. Old hat I was thinking over the winter of trying it out for trout. I have never used it in cold water. After reading your post I can't wait. tight lines and heavy creels -Tom
