  1. Hey all. I caught a new PB Rainbow trout. I'd tell you the weight but hate being called a liar! LOL Caught on a balanced pink beaded white leach.
  2. Yes, called a balanced bead head. The pin is any pin that will not allow the bead to fall off. In this case, it is a pin from craft work earing. I have also used brass brad nails in 22 gauge as well as seamstress pins cut down to length. Hope this answers your questions.
  3. Just for future reference ... this is what's considered a "BAD" decision. LOL
  4. I too am in a bit of a pickle. I decided to rip the fingernail half way off my index finger. I attempted top tie up some flies today with little success.
  5. I anticipate to get mine in the mail tomorrow.
  6. That's not fair FRN. Needless to say though, when you go out, I truly hope you get to connect with a big ol fat and ugly girl. By all means, do not go by my suggestions. I have yet to seriously try out my outfit. I went with a 9wt fly rod and upped my double tapper to a 10wt. You will chuckle at my tippet. It is 5ft of 150lb seaguar floro. No one, I mean no one can convince me on going anything less for a tippet. I tried the chuck and duck method and can easily manage the fly I tied for the swap. Now I will try the others I got from the swap.
  7. Yes, got mine as well. Only, lets see, 70 more days before I can give them a true test... Thanks guys for tying up some great flies!
  8. Nice video Mike. A little advice, don't talk so much during the episode, let the rod and fish do the talking for you....
  9. Both of these flies will be tied up in large quantities for opener of the trout season for me. Size 10, 12 and 14 will do the trick.
  10. Don't know what they are called but the trout in my neighborhood sure do like them.
  11. Caught this one on the infamous HaHaHa fly! (lurking in the shadows). Cheers, Ron...
  12. Good on ya Tom. May the Karma bless you on your next Musky trip. Cheers, Ron...
  13. Hey Tom. I don't think any of us are concerned about being short a fly. Honestly, I don't remember what I sent you as an extra fly but will definitely make it up to you on the next swap. Grampa Tom..... It's got a good ring to it.... Cheers!
  14. As mush as I would like to, I will have to pass. Got too much on my plate now and that dam 4 letter word (work) is catching up to me now. Tis the season....
  15. Nothing in the mail from me yet? Rut roe....
  16. Ok guys, I have been having some hook issues. I am hoping they will be in my hands tomorrow. I am setting Sunday aside to get mine tied up. Cheers, Ron...
  17. We can plan something out FRN. Camping in my back yard won't quiet do it though. The part most people don't realize is, it takes 24 hrs of driving to get from 1 end of Ontario to the other. If you plan on a specific area, let me know and I can see what I can help you with. Might even be able to join you with my fishing buddy. That musky came from the French River near Lake Nippissing. Lake St. Clair is by far the best for casting, and numbers and your best chance at a 50".
  18. I guess I am one of the more fortunate guys in fishing. We have fantastic species here in Ontario that we don't have to venture out of province. My trips include Thunder Bay for Northern Pike, Lake Nipigon for Brook Trout and Lake Trout, Lake St. Clair for Musky, Lake Ontario tributaries for Rainbow Trout, Coho and Chinook Salmon. Bay of Quinte for Walleye and any Kawartha lake for Large or Small mouth bass. I am new to fly fishing for them but old hat on conventional gear. Here are a few pics of my "trophies"...

    Timber!

    Wouldn't it have been a lot easier to post a sign "Private driveway" as opposed to placing the big ol tree trunk across? Seems like a lot of work if you want to get out of your driveway...
  20. Got mine today! I am humbled on the ties from everyone. Sorry for making my beaded Prince Nymph so big Vicrider. LOL Just incredible you guys can tie so small! I think I will be making a shadow box for these so I can look at them while I'm in the office doing paperwork. I will put a sign above it... "Attention to detail no matter how small the job is key to success". Thanks again everyone, they are great! Cheers, Ron...
  21. Snail mail at it's best. You should see them in 14 days.
