  1. Hi, I don’t use a airbrush but if I did I would probably go for this one https://www.harborfreight.com/1-5-hp-58-psi-compressor-and-airbrush-kit-95630.html yes, it’s made in China but what isn’t? I just purchased a ultra sonic vinyl record cleaner from China, I want expecting much since the price was so low but I was amazed at the high quality of the product, the same goes for the soldering station and mini hot air gun my wife bought me for Christmas Barry
  2. The heart of a good vise is surely the jaws, Renzetti have excellent jaws on all their vises. The rest of Renzetti series are all very good but so are many vises from other manufacturers. Renzetti tend to be on the higher price range, but considering how long they last that shouldn’t be a big deal.
  3. Mark, you have only been a member of this forum for two years. As a moderator it’s your job to interpret the rules not to make them. The world has gone mad with so called “wokeness “ it would be a shame to see this forum to go the same way, it would seem to me that you are encouraging that. just my opinion of course from a 5’ 11” member who’s had nearly thirty years in the industry, Trout and Salmon only of course. im not interested in keeping this crazy thread going any longer, maybe one of the moderators should lock it? Barry
  4. Is this forum following the left in becoming to “woke”. if a fly dressing with a picture is badly tied why not say so as long as it’s constructive criticism? Barry
  5. Mark Knapp is just another member of the forum, since when does this give him permission to set the rules?
  6. I purchased one of these systems and I am delighted with it. I have published one or two photos in threads on this forum Thanks Barry
  7. Very nice, what is the wing? It’s obviously married. Get that knee healed I have plantar fasciitis so I know how it feels to be only able to hobble around. Barry
  8. I agree and a nice vise also Barry
  9. Nicely tied , if you used a vintage black hook it would be right up there with the masters.
  10. my version of a Spey Polar Shrimp Barry
  11. What’s nice about polar bear is it’s very tough, floats well and i believe it to Fluoresce B
  12. I didn’t know they have had a problem. I actually have quite a few Dai-Riki hooks and love them. Very strong in both nymph and dry hooks and very sharp, not brittle and doesn’t bend easily. Yes there are plenty of others but Dai-Riki will be missed by me. Barry
  13. The most fragile i tie with are the underwing from Blackbirds, Starling, Golden Plover and similar for tying soft hackle flies and not in tiny sizes either. Barry
  14. My best “bench” is a old plank supported by a couple of logs by my local river! I won’t post a picture as it’s very quiet and peaceful and someone might share its location on social media! Baz
