  1. No offense intended, TIER, as I meant that as a joke. He's scared of very little, I'm sure, but the most dangerous wild animals are the one's who are 'used' to people. Anyway, like I said, that's a great photo, one that 99% of the people in the US will never have the opportunity to take, so keep them coming.
  2. I carry a small container of Abolene for use as a dry fly dressing, and also use it to grease the first few feet of my line tip when this happens. Use for greasing my leader when needed, too.
  3. If I had to choose between a half dozen different color hen backs or one partridge skin for the same price, I'd go with the hen backs. I'll take a dozen, please! If you could get them here by Saturday morning I would appreciate it, the predicted 40 degree weather is my winter fishing cue. That softer green background nicely shows off your fly.
  4. Pretty hard to focus a camera when you're running backwards at 20 mph. Great photo anyway, though.
  5. I knew that punch line was coming, but I burst out laughing anyway. Ha ha ha.
  6. No engraving on them, unfotunately, cp. Only by holding these and my other ones side by side can you barely notice a different in cut/shape of the sheet metal.
  7. You see those mostly with Partridge, I like your choice of hackle much better. Very nice.
  8. I've been looking for any of the old, rotary type Universal Vise Corp vises for a while. One popped up on Craigslist this morning and I was able to pick it up after work, plus a few things that came with. Sounds goofy, but I love those old bobbin holders, they fit nicely in my paws. Vise is in pretty good shape, a few small rust spots on the jaw's shank. Rotates smoothly and all screws hold well.

    Cabin build

    Dinner bells, I think, was the term when I lived up in Alaska.
  10. Good idea, but I don't get many at the feeder.
  11. Nice Mark, almost makes me want to ice fish. Almost.
  12. Some very fine wire in the USB cords used for charging phones, also.
  13. A couple of real nice ties, @cphubert. I only recently started paying more attention to those white tipped starling feathers, I'm surprised they are not used more for this kind of tie. I have a long list of 'nexts' on my shopping list, but a dyed starling is near the top.
