  1. I too know Rod and Matt. SoHo fly shop is a top notch business. They are great guys. I am sure if you call them they will correct the problem. As for they stay out guiding, Rod doesn't guide and they have another guy that works there so you aren't being shoved aside. I would recomend them to anyone and have bought off them ever since they have been in Tenn. and known them longer than that. So guys don't give up on them and troutdogg give them a shout. STU
  2. I throw them in the river here at home at night in the pitch black and do well on them. I also tie a big black slider for this. I just throw up or up and across and keep up with the slack so you can feel the strikes and feel you will. Most of the time they about hook theirself. It sounds like a train wreck when they hit. I love it I jsut started doing the night hing last year and can't wait to do it this summer. Heres one from last summer. STU
  3. Your right that is a good name! STU
  4. That is a Harey prince. I use them for trout in a #16 and smaller. I use sulpher, olive and white wings depending on the hatch. Great fly BTW. It has been the downfall to several nice trout for me. Hope it does the same for you. STU
  5. Nice fly, and BTW tell your inlaw to get outta my favorite fishing hole! I fish the SoHo alot myself. Joking about that run though. I think that fly will be a killer on that river. I saw the pic before I read teh text and knew it before I read it. That is a really good run. STU
  6. I have been tying them today, we call them backscratchers. Very effective mtn stream fly where stone flies are present. STU
  7. Gosh I am confused. I thought this was a forum, a place where ya ask questions and people who WANTED to answer do so, and give you advise. But I have been wrong before. STU
  8. I am wondering what kinda water is the best, what kinda flies to fish, and hwo light shy are these guys. I have soem holes picked out that are easy wading and hold some really nice fish that I can see during the day but can't get hooked. I think the cover of dark may be the ticket. But new at it any help with patterns or tech. would be helpful. I have heard mice and streamer patterns. But fish it fast of slow? Around cover or in the open water, are the fish hugging the cover or cruzing looking for a "big" meal? I think that the darkness may bring them out some. Thanks STU
  9. Yep that is a good thought Smallie. I fish them really slow and on the bottom, I want it to look like a craw just out for a moring walk I guess. I hardly ever fish them in the current. I fish the back waters around rock piles and in eddies and things like that. But your comment is a worthy thought though. STU
  10. I have deen tying these for a yaer or so it like the one will posted a while back with the bunny strips but I thought of something diff. I put a small loop of craft foam inbetween the pinchers to seperate them. I noticed in the past the pinchers wanted to kinda lay together instead of at that craw readyt o pinch the crap outta ya pose. I thought this may hlep and it may make the rear of the fly raise up to look more like a craw in the water. It is made with ginger and white vara. cheniele and nat. hackle, a 1/20 oz eye and rusty brown bunny strip the case on the top over the hackle is that 1/4" scud back. Well thought I would run this by the experts to see what ya thought. STU
  11. Well I am a Correctional Officer in the state of VA. I work in a max security facility houshing 900 inmates. Hey not so bad is you like only working 14 outta 28 days. Oh ya and it is really easy work, like babysitting. Just big babies. STU
  12. You guys need to quit lying the Holston is a fishless hole! I would never fish there. Well unless you like beating dead water! I hope you guys can spot a liar? Rod is a good guide and so is Matt. I haven't ever hired them but been on the river with them some. If anyone needs a guide I wouldn't hesitate to hire these guys. BTW Rod I hope to be there on TUes. this is my weekend on so off MON and TUES will be there one if not both I may stay at the camper on the lake. So if you are there look for me I will be in one of the usual spots. STU
  13. Alot of those SOHO browns back during the fall were Dai-Riki fish. That is the hook I tie the Harey Prince and most of my PTs on when I can get them. I still use several TMCs I like the 200R as you said and the 102Y as you know is my fav. I haven't noticed any dulling in the Dai-Riki's so I will keep my eyes on them though. I am tying #20 PTs for SOHO right now on #125 the emerger hook by Dai-Riki. So I will keep my eyes on them. By the way where ya beek Rod? I saw Matt he said you were at the cabin a few days back looked for ya on the river but never seen ya. STU
  14. For the $ really good hooks as good maybe better than TMC I have had several TMC's break removing them form fish lately. STU
  15. Good luck and hope you get better quick. Some people need to have some respect.
