  1. @Moshup, Me, I'd like to be about 97 or 98 and shot by a jealous husband. Nice tie too. Everyone else excellent work as always!
  2. Anyone who says, "youse guys" is AOK in my book
  3. @Moshup thank you. I certainly hope he would have. An interesting but too short life. What a terrible way he died.
  4. What I'm thinking is an Atherton style dry. Based on his #1-#7. All natural materials, blended natural fur dubbing, Catskill style wings and extra small gold oval tinsel. I used CDL for the tails cause I didn't like the spade hackle I picked from the necks. Oh yeah, size 16, dark barred ginger hackle. Dubbing: mixed natural mink/X-tremely fine natural PMD and dun beaver.
  5. Welcome. Great work you're showing. Keep 'em coming!
  6. Depends on the size your tying. You can use 6 strands, twist each pair then wrap 'em.
  7. @niveker thank you sir @utyerPMDs were one of the flies that did great. Spinners in the early morning, then duns later. Last Chance cripple Flavs were very productive but the clear overall winner was a size 16 rusty spinner. That was on Henry's fork. And thank you.
  8. After a week in Idaho and YNP is back to the vise. Last night's Bugs and Bourbon. PMD hacklestackers Hook: Fulling Mill 5050 size 18 Tail: Med. Pardo CDL Abdomen: PMD goose biot Thorax: Trouthunter pro PMD dubbing Hackle: Whiting med dun bronze saddle There's been some great ties so far this month. Very inspiring. Keep up the great work everyone!
  9. I'm heading up there this Saturday for a week, I'll let you know.
  10. Exactly what flytire and chug said
  11. Now your hats will fit nice and snugly
  12. Jon, Welcome. I have to agree George is a wonderful human being. (Not saying the rest of you all here aren't) He's helped me quite a bit and also turned me on the Mr. McClain who is also a great guy. I'm really digging what you're tying. Sandan
  13. Thanks, but... It's PMD superfine dubbed thin on that hot orange thread.
  14. No,no,no,no. He who lives with the most toys wins!
  15. Couple from yesterday. Orange. Size 16 hot spot para Wulff PMD and a size 16 hot spot PT PMD Hook: TMC 002 size 16 Thread: fire orange 8/0 Wing: white calf body Tail: med.

  16. Wow. George, that's a beautiful fly
  17. Stimis, madamx's too, you're probably seeing yellow sallies. The salmon flies come off in June. an Elk hair caddis is good and I think a missing link is killer on the Arky.
  18. @TSMcDougald @niveker Thanks guys. I like the butt ends exposed too. Everyone else, great work!!!
  19. Caddis, PMDs, hoppers on the Arky. Stonefly nymphs, black, brown and yellow (iron sallies). Lake IU can't help you unless you're talking Crystal lake. If that's it a chironomid retrieved slowly. @chugbug27 +100 for Kimo
  20. Size 16 PMD sparkle duns. Thread: bennichi yellow Shuck: brown zlon Abdomen/thorax: 50/50 Hendrickson pink/PMD superfine Wing: dun comparadun deer hair
  21. Thanks. It sure looked like had one. Cutts and rainbows can naturally reproduce.
