  1. Also give Microsoft OneNote a try. I think now it is free and pc or mac version, and also tables.
  2. Thank you, that's the site I was on, but thought there could be more information available.
  3. I haven't heard much about it and the southeastfff.org website doesn't provide much info as well. Do you have any other website with more information?
  4. It's not my site, but I come here every day. If it helps fight spam and hackers, I'm all for it. I kind of like the new look personally. It all takes time to iron out new changes, we'll look back in a short while and say, "what change". Thanks for this site Smalliehunter.
  5. I plan to attend if I can rid of this stinking flue. Finally able to keep food down. Much healing to do yet first.
  6. Thanks everyone, now let's go eat some turkey!! :headbang:
  7. Just wanted to wish everyone here Happy Thanksgiving. I for one am thankful for so much, but at the top is my wife is recovering very well from her foot surgery and my daughter blessed us with a new granddaughter this past Monday night at 9:15. Thank you Lord.
  8. Sorry guys, I didn't get to go this year. Wifey had foot surgery and I have been playing house nurse. She has had other surgeries and things, but this time it is really tiring me out. I am sure I have seen most everyone there over the years but I really wanted to meet, face to face, as many from this site as I could. Always January show and next year. :headbang:
  9. Any one here receive the May 2009 issue of Gray's yet? If so, is the photographic journal article the Susquehanna River? Thanks, DeerhairTom
  10. Cruncher, go to the "our work" link at the top of the welcome page. That will open up a page with 8 different project links. Hope this helps. DeerhairTom
  11. Harold, copy and paste the website listed, but remove the space before the j. Your father's work is top notch Charlie. DeerhairTom
  12. Gotta love the english language. Why isn't tier pronounced as pier? Yep, I know, there are others as well. DeerhairTom
  13. I too use tyer because I think it looks better, to me. I like the more old school or british english feel. But my business cards have the Tier and Tyer crossed out and I use "Bug Builder". Just to be different. Plus there was a group of us tyers in the eastern council FFF back in the early-mid 80's, that tyed a lot together. Sports shows, council claves/events, any event usually, just an excuse to tye together. Someone came up with the idea of a pin for us and had them made and numbered every year. I have relinquished my pin number over the years so I have no idea if they are still making these or not. I did see John P, the fearless leader at Somerset last year, but he was busy and I forgot to get back with him. DeerhairTom
  14. Very nice. Keep that team together until I get done with my draft of the Muddlers and we have a game. :hyst: It'll take me quite a while as I am still trying to locate different color turkey rounds. Maybe before the start of the season, the NFL season that is. DeerhairTom
  15. Thanks everyone. I am currently searching the internet for different colors of turkey rounds. Yep, the very first place I checked was J Stockard. I know Hareline sells pairs, but J Stockard does not list the rounds. I may call J Stockard directly and make sure they don't carry them before I contact a place in Maryland. I have quite a few colors from feathers I picked up at craft stores, but they only carry black, white and red in individual colors. The greens, blues and other colors come in a mixed bag and even after rewashing and drying, the quality is poor to average at best. Of course I need rights and lefts, so that makes it more difficult. I think I may have found a place that sells feathers to schools, but I need to order a small order and check out the quality. I'll have to order rights separate from the lefts, so matched pairs is out of the question. Plus I just hate giving my credit card number to a new (to me) small unheard of business. I tried tying up some green and white last night, but the quality of the green feathers were so poor, I gave up. I could put them on the injured benched though. DeerhairTom
  16. Thanks guys. They're a blast to tye and the color combinations are endless. You can be sure that the rejects will go in my flybox. I have to locate some chartruese turkey rounds and tye up some chartruese and white for smallmouth on the river. That color combo seems to work all the time. DeerhairTom
  17. I have been tying these at tying shows lately. Started with natural turkey and yellow, then graduated to the Red White and Blue and now the Babcock wet fly colors (last name), or the Steelers colors. Thinking about football team colors set, I have a sheet of green foam the would make a great football field for display. I chose to tye these at shows because I can demonstrate married-wings techniques, and working with deerhair. DeerhairTom
  18. I use beads myself. Don't try these with flat mylar tinsel though. Makes the tinsel curl real bad. I also saw these on the market lately and they have heat shrink tubing over the elastic. Thanks for sharing. DeerhairTom
  19. I have to second JStockard. That is one online store I will recommend to anyone. Super service, fast delivery. Plus a sponsor, win win. DeerhairTom
  20. sukhoidave, can you possibly add a long tube-bead from a craft store. One that would fit tight over the bobbin tube and let protrude say a quarter inch past the end, and apply epoxy? Just a first thought for this early in the morning. Maybe I'll have a better idea later on. DeerhairTom
  21. I think that was flyboyutah that made that. It certainly was a thing of beauty. DeerhairTom
  22. Thanks, I am getting to be a procrastinator to the max. I jumped on this yesterday and ordered the two issues. At first I was planning on purchasing at the Somerset show. I like to show my support to the vendors that buy tables at these winter shows that it is worth their time and expense, but I couldn't wait any longer. After all the great reviews, I have got to have this before late November. DeerhairTom :yahoo:
  23. 3FL2, don't use zoom. Does your camera have a macro mode? DeerhairTom
  24. That looks great vtflyhack. Very nice workmanship and well designed. Let me know when you start taking orders. DeerhairTom
