  1. That looks awesome, Mark! It's obvious you guys had a blast. Very cool. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Quill Gordon Hook: TMC 100, size 14 Tail: Dun Body: Stripped peacock (from one of my neighbor's birds) Hackle: Dun Wings: Wood duck Notes: A big thank you to @Moshup for generously sending me some high end hackle to try out. Much appreciated good sir, the quality was obvious. Crappy, rainy day is making for a good day to continue practicing the traditional Catskill patterns (tail a bit long on the one in my photo) while my cross country skis weep. One of our cats, Hermes, always likes to hang out on the bench behind where I sit whenever I tie.
  3. @danthebugman Those look great, nice work!
  4. Great looking fly, @SBPatt! Nice work.
  5. Another example... fly tied by my grandfather-in-law, several decades ago. I make sure it's the first ornament to go on the tree every year. ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. @Poopdeck Great looking Copper John!!! Tight, clean work.
  7. I mostly get out on my local waters in the mornings and fish to the early in the afternoons in the spring/summer. I'd like to try more afternoons and evenings in the hopes of catching spinner falls this time around. That's about it, really. ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. That's hard to find cheap, obviously! However, there are some resources online. This link is for Maine specifically, but I'm sure it's similar for most of New England. Best of luck.
  9. Those all look much nicer than my simple piece of scrap 2X4 with some holes drilled in it (A.K. Best tip)... but hey, it does the job!
  10. Looks great!!! I think you and Alaska are made for one another.
  11. Most impressive! Really like the abdomen.
  12. Olive Soft Hackle Hook: Size 14 Abdomen: Olive rabbit Ribbing: Copper wire Thorax: Brown rabbit Hackle: Hungarian Partridge Notes: I hemmed and hawed about what to tie for at least an hour, sifting through books and materials but it took a long while before something hit. Finally decided on something that would be simple and fun.
  13. Another nod for the Peak... best vice for the price, IMO. Rivals vises that double its price.
  14. Perhaps I'm cheating a bit, as I tied these a few hours before we turned the calendars turned to 2021... After seeing @flytire's mole fly, I was inspired to also tie up a small batch: Mole Fly Hook: TMC 2487, size 20 Wing: CDC Natural Body: Beaver dubbing Happy New Year!
  15. @Sandan Beautiful! Nicely done, looks amazing.
  16. @flytire These are on my short list to tie soon.
  17. Happy New Year! Keep being kind, it always helps. Happy tying and fishing everyone! -Jamie
  18. @essequamvideri Thanks!!! Already looking forward to spring.
  19. Just curious... Any word on if they are updating the book in anyway? I am pretty sure the hackle stacker emerged after it was last printed and I am wondering if there are other techniques that are "missing" in the older edition as well.
  20. @Moshup Ah, thanks for the tip. That's interesting with the hackles. Had no idea.
  21. You can get the pseudo lead stuff and it's pretty cheap. It's all I use and it weighs flies down quite nicely. Though it sounds like your body might be safe from real lead, the fake stuff is more eco friendly.
