  1. Thanks, We’re going to be on the road for a while with no fixed location. Please post some pics; would like to see what it turned in to. Regards, Scott
  2. Did you try one out before you bought it? If I every put out that much money for a vise (which I wouldn’t) I’d test drive it first. Vises are very personal choices; features that some folks crave, others couldn’t care less about. There are some who aren’t fond of Renzetti Travelers; you’ll have to pry mine from my cold, dead hands. Regards, Scott
  3.

  4. Chad, There’s no way your flies don’t belong here. That stonefly dry you posted on Westfly a few years ago was inspired, one of my favorite Rogue variations MCM Foam Stonefly It’s good to know you’re still around. I really miss Westfly; lots of great folks and info on that site. Regards, Scott
  5. Softhackle Hairwing Didn’t remember dyeing stuff in rust ; found the bag digging for something else and liked the color. With a bit of imagination, it’s sort of an October Caddis; I’ll skip the thorax next time since it gets buried. hook - Sierra 7999 #8 thread - UTC 70 burnt orange tail- pheasant rump dyed rust (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange, 1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow/1 cup water) rib - small wire copper underbody - Orvis Saltwater thread fluoro orange body - medium tinsel pearl thorax - aftershaft dyed orange (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/ 1 cup water) wing - deer hair shoulder - pheasant rump dyed orange hackle - badger dyed rust Regards, Scott
  6. Adams Stimi (Lough style) Only thing changed from the Semi was addition of body hackle, thorax and orientation of front hackle (tip-tied). hook - Sierra 2312 #10 thread - UTC 140 grey brown tail- elk bleached rib - xsmall wire silver body - tying thread body hackle - grizzly (undersize by 2) wing - elk bleached thorax - Ice Dub Hare’s Ear brown hackle - furnace/grizzly Regards, Scott
  7. Adams Semi-Stimi Found this here. Actually more of a Sofa Pillow since the back half’s not hackled; similar to Tim Sickles Naked Stimi. hook - Sierra 2312 #10 thread - UTC 140 grey brown tail- elk bleached rib - small wire silver body - tying thread shellback - pheasant tail wing - elk bleached hackle - brown/grizzly Regards, Scott
  8. Skeleton Beadle (variation) Downsized and simplified version of a cool fly I saw on the Speypages site; still needs work but it has possibilities.

  9. It would be appropriate to fish that on Jenny Lake. Regards, Scott
  10.

  11. Jay’s October Caddis (variation) Swapped out a bunch of materials from his fly but the framework’s pretty much the same. hook - WFC Model 6 #6 thread - Uni 6/0 rusty brown (touched up with black marker at head) rib - oval tinsel gold body - Sanyo Fusion Dubbing Crusty Nail hackle - pheasant body dyed brown wing - deer hair head - Ice Dub black Regards, Scott
