  1. Fixed the link. Nice owl!
  2. https://nbcmontana.com/news/local/hoot-owl-restrictions-in-place-for-several-sw-montana-rivers Regards, Scott
  3. I have some old rooster capes that are a bit brittle, too. I just put the feathers I’m going to be tying with in a damp paper towel and microwave them for about 5 seconds; seems to keep the quill from splitting. As far as partridge goes, I’ve never had a problem with stiff stems; like redietz, I tie them in by their tips. Scott
  4. Fished here Using this For this A peach bullethead Rogue Hopper I must have tied back in 2013. This was the 3rd fish I caught on it and the head was already blown. Regards, Scott
  5. Danville 6/0 works great. UTC 70 does, too but the stuff is too “flossy” for me. Scott
  6. Fished here Using this For this Added some grizzly hackle to Muz Wilson’s Wee Creek Hopper. Doubtful that the fish care one way or another. Regards, Scott

  9. You’re very welcome. Whatever you use, I’m sure you’ll catch a mess of fish on them. Regards, Scott
  10. I don’t think I’ve used anything but Sally Hansen on clouser heads and they catch fish. Maybe if you’re tying for show you might want to build it up to a higher sheen. Regards, Scott

  14. Elk, an ungulate like deer, provides buoyancy which seems counter to the weight you’ve added. Scott
