I have not been around in a while but when I stopped in I saw this swap and cannot resist (After all, it's almost FISH ON time)... it looks like you listed Yellow Bomber twice... would it be very "cheeky" of me to try and sneek in this "closed" swap taking one of his spots??? so... what do you say.... ok with you yellow bomber?

  9. The line setup up is your second description ({fly line/ furled leader/ mono leader/ fly}) I second Kathy Scott's video. This is what I used to learn how to make them. The mono is your tippet (you cans set it up with a small loop to loop connection too... Tom
  10. When I was younger, I tried my hand at taxidermy. One of my “experiments” was a ring necked pheasant. Needless to say, as it turned out, I would not win any awards with the quality of the mount. I still have it, Hidden … errr…Retired to the closet. That said, over the years, I have picked feathers off the mount to tie flies…. Count me in the guilty group! Tom

  16. Bill, I use this fly to catch Coho and Chinook in the fall (spawning) run. Do you think it will work for the salmon in Maine? Perhapse you had ice-out type flies in mind? Here is an image of the fly: ESTAZ COMET Tom
  17. Ok Bill, Just was wondering what type of fly you had in mind. Casting fly it is: I'll come in with an Estaz Comet, Salmon River NY Tom
  18. BillB, Are you looking for salmon flies used for a "salmon run" or flies that may be used for trolling such as in a lake? Tom
