    Hello from hempfield twp, sw PA. You fishing the yough for your smallies? I've got a set of those harbor freight foam cutters myself. They're great.

  2. I've got one as well and love it. I purchased mine with the material clip and D-arm also. I like both accessories very much. While some day I would love to own a j- vise, it would be a purely frivolous purchase.

    Looking great. Don't forget to do some in obnoxious colors too. I had one I made similar to yours with loads of silver flashabou-like dubbing. The large mouth would not leave it alone.


    Nothing like the others artists are posting, but this is my confidence fly. I fish it like a streamer more often than not. Trout and panfish love it.

  4. I love fishing carp on the fly. Walk The shore line until you find a fish within casting distance feeding. Look for a mud cloud with a tail sticking out. Get positioned ahead of where it looks like it's going so you're line doesn't end up across it's back. Cast 3 to 5 feet in front of it and wait. When you think the fish is about a foot away from the fly, give it one short strip to just move the fly a few inches at most. If you see for get sucked up, great. But more often than not your just reading the fish's body language to know when to set the hook. It's both still and slow moving and super exciting at the same time. If your in a shake lake a 5wt is fine. If you're in moving water the flies will be heavier and the fish will fight harder, so go with a 7wt.

  5. Just make sure the roll top part is big enough that your vise fits. And don't be in too big of a rush or you'll risk paying too much. I looked and looked for a few months and ended up finding one in great condition for $40 I think. Most were listed around $200.
