  1. I am excited. I just got a new running line and Skagit head for my Spey rod. The running line has a big loop on the end that slips over the coiled fly line so that lines can be changed easily. I have a Scandi head already. This should enable me to use large heavy flies on the Skagit, as well as add sink tips to it. Smaller flies can be used with the Scandi line. There are plenty of videos on line. This should be fun.
  2. Mark, I somehow missed this in May. Very cool way to taper materials. This is one of those, "now why didn't I think of that?" Very much an improvement for tying streamers with synthetic material. 👏!
  3. You did a good job. I learned something. I had not been putting the red yarn all the way up the hook. I had just put it in like a tail. Tying a fluff butt. Your way looks better. In the spirit of trying to help, you might want to try tying squirrel in reverse and gluing. Then pull it back and wrap over it. Reverse winging helps with slippery hairs. I have had trouble with squirrel coming out. Just another technique. Your way works, but is less strong, IMHO. Good job! You are very talented.
  4. Contact St Croix. I have gotten excellent service from them
  5. For lakes, a Carey Special. If you have Stoneflies, a girdle bug or a Brooks Stone nymph
  6. All sorted. In the mail soon. Great flies. Thanks for participating. I am humbled. Mine don't have toe tags. One Scandinavian in Salmon colors and one tube fly in Steelhead colors. If someone could post photos, my phone will not load today.
  7. I have received them all. Will process and mail Monday or Tuesday
  8. The space would be 1great for a Portland hitch. Welcome.
  9. We use them as toppings, and they last for at least a couple fish.
  10. Nice fly, Flytier. How long do the legs hold up? I like any fly with peacock, except a Zug bug.
  11. I agree. Beautiful fly. That would probably take some coastal cutthroat. I may have to "borrow" the pattern. Thanks for posting.
  12. Flies tied "in the round" appear the same either way, too the fish. Now whether hook up or down hooks better?
