  1. I had my 7 year old Grand twins (boy & girl) tying their own wooly worms last summer. Best part was watching them catch rock bass off of the dock with their creations. Not flyfishing but with spincast tackle. I think I might have created two monsters.

    Flytire, Thanks for that. Another forgotten, talented guitar player.

    Busy, busy, busy.

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going!! Inspiring post! As Chugbug said, it makes my complaints seem very trifling. Les
  4. Steve, I lost my little brother when he was just past his 51st birthday. It's been 10 years and I still think about him most every day. The memories are there but somehow we learn to accept what happened and not trying to sound cliche it does get easier as we learn to accept what happened. May peace be with you and may your sister be in your memories forever. Les
  5. I like it because it is shown from the tyers perspective not the other side as most videos show.

    My new shop

    Mine is a detached garage which I have never allowed a car to enter. 😊

    My new shop

    20 X 30 is a nice size. My shop is 16 X 28 and I regret not going for the extra 4 feet.

    New meaning to the expression "Nice Slab" ?

    Poopdeck, aluminum can be welded with a MIG. You will need a spool gun because the wire is too soft to push through from the machine to the contact tip and you need the proper gas. If you get good with a TIG welder though, I have seen aluminum foil welded at a demo at a local college.

    Mike, lots of dust collector designs on youtube if you want some ideas. Lots of shop setup ideas as well. Congrats on your new shop project and Happy Birthday as well. Looking forward to your updates.
  11. McFly, you are probably right on the tippet size. That never entered my mind so I took a different tack and went with yarn and hair wings. I now just use yarn because it is so easy to use and when it comes to tying flies I like to keep things as simple as possible. Too bad I didn't think about the tippet because that would have been an even simpler solution.
  12. Been tying similar rubber band nymphs for years. They really work well and are so easy to tie that losing them to the riverbed doesn't hurt.
  13. I've tried this style of wing before on a very similar fly. I found that the wings acted like a helicopter and twisted my tippet really badly. Maybe you'll have better luck. It might be my mediocre tying skills that caused the problem.
