  1. Keep on tying! Looks like you have a nice tying station. Did you make that?
  2. Repeat post, but my favorite.
  3. I'm a big fan of the Peak rotary pedestal vise and it is in your range.
  4. I am a big fan of the Usual, plus I love saying "Oh, the Usual" when people ask what I'm using! I like the CDC variant as well - 2 materials, snowshoe and cdc. I like them for sulphurs- your look well done.
  5. I really like that graphic caddis Flytire, I can see some of those coming off of my vise soon!
  6. Nice range of colors and as always, perfect execution.
  7. Rusty Spinner Variant Hook: 14 Mustad dry Tail: tan microfibbits Body: Tan turkey biot Thorax: rust superfine dubbing Wings: EP fibers This was the first time I have used a turkey biot for a body and I was amazed at how easy it was and how nice they look.
  8. Thanks DFoster! Silvercreek, I whip finish at the base of the post on bigger sizes, often on the smaller ones, I tie off on the eye. Either way I make sure to use head cement, as too often the hackle breaks after a fish or two. I have tried UV resin to glue it, but have not liked it- I might experiment more with different resins. It seems like it would be more durable and easier on small flies, I just do not have the hang of it yet.
  9. Thanks you guys, I have been adding a few flies to the rows every day. I do find paras, comparaduns, and emerges to catch more fish, but I just feel like I should always have some classic Adams in 14, 16, and 18 on hand for tradition's sake! I probably use a 14 para more than any other mayfly pattern. I like tying those the most too. I like the Tacky boxes and have found them on sale. The dry fly box- pictured- is sometimes a bit finicky as far as putting flies into their slots. They accommodate my OCD pretty well.
  10. I like that whip finish tool!
  11. Brown and grizzly hackle barbules- Sorry, I should have included info on materials.
