  7. i once saw a loop that was whipped finished by joseph meyer in his old fly shop said they a whip finish to hold the loop together spaced apart one whip finish for each 20lb size fish they were going after. so a 100lb tarpon would have 4 to 5.
  8. i just got my order of victory hooks. black nickel ,90 degree jig. glad i got 4 sizes because they run small. so just aheads up if you order any , get a size larger . nice hooks and in expensive .
  9. bob, being able to create a fly with various eyes, location on the hook and size and weight of the hook is one of the main reasons we tie our own flies great photos too. but in your many years of fishing have you found a reason to tie the eyes,bead chain etc on the barb side of the hook. ?
  10. philly if your trim the tails to a point on your mops, they will have more whip action,.. best of luck to you on your trip
  11. watched a gunnar brammer video on his seasoned geezer fly. it calls for a size 4 4xlong, DOWN eye hook. small eye are placed on the barb side[opposite of a clouser] . never seen that before has anyone used a fly like that?
  12. he was an original. loved his music OH,YEEAAHHHH
  13. a few friends swear by the electric fillet knives and that is for crappie and walleye.i think it would work better on bigger salmon.. should have battery powered ones
  14. if a person made a plastic 3 d printed bullet sinker, would it float or sink? i have a few basswood bulletsi drilled a hole thru it and use a large fly behind it to easily pull over weed for bass. just dont know if the plastic would float or be heavier than the wood version. any ideas
  15. i cant believe how much better i cast with mine. something about the 10ft i think
