  1. Why don't we just update the software or server that's causing this issue? I agree- this forum is almost unusable at this point. But I prefer it vs. FB Groups by a mile. Maybe we can all pitch in, start a go fund me.
  2. A lot of streamers the past couple of days. Getting ready for the Fly Tying Symposium in NJ next month. Feel free to stop by and chat. - Dan South Bound Trucker, Thrasher, Hovercraft Sculpin, Flugenzombie with Pumpkin Spice, Boogie Man, Mini Peanut Envy etc.
  3. Pike Flies for the land of the 40's Ontario. Articulated Cisco, Blockhead Popper, Mega Rattling Murdich
  4. Some articulated trout streamers, pike divers, and Dreadnaughts.
  5. An assortment heading to Alaska this month for rainbows and Silvers (Coho), some EZ Morrish Mouse with Fly Skinz Slow Rolla Tail, and some Schminnows I'm taking to Florida next month to hopefully dupe a snook or two.
  6. very handsome tie Scott! kicking it off with a bang. I'm working on an Alaskan Rainbow/Silver Salmon (Coho) that I'll post when finished in a couple of days.
  7. ^I really dig the color scheme and the look but just watch that hook gap- worst thing is when you get a bunch of strikes and none of them stick. If you need to, you can bend that hook up for a little extra clearance.
  8. Two orders this week. One heading out west to mess with those Montana browns and bulls, one to Minnesota for some smalljaw action.
  9. <deleted content> 99% of materials end up unused in tupper ware containers or wooden drawers. lol. This thread is funny
  10. Yea I tend to have way more white/lighter baitfish patterns- but I needed something for those low light days for higher contrast. We shall see- would love to see some of your flies
  11. Here is a good baby tarpon fly- Drew Chicone's Snake Fly variant that he calls "The Devil's Daughter". Pattern was found in his great resource book, "Feather Brain". Daiichi 2546 Size 1/0 Tail- Ostrich Herl and Peacock Body- Marabou Plumes Head- Deer Body Hair Mixed with Peacock Herl. In the water, the peacock "glows" an orange color.
  12. Here is one of my staple patterns in my euro boxes- the Peacock Cased Caddis Jig- Dead simple- sizes 14, 16, and 18 2 strands peacock herl, small olive ultra wire counter wrapped 8 times, your favorite caddis green dubbing. I usually bigger cased caddis imitations in early spring, but year round I find tons of these things in smaller sizes, especially 14-18. You can vary the dubbing color to a cream or brown- both are good to have.
  13. You got the one on the right! Plus some extras.
  14. Not a fan of their hooks- I've heard of so many tempering issues in the past- and I've had several bend out on 12-14" stockies in the past (3-4 years ago). Haven't touched them since. Hanak and Fasna have definitely been my preferred choice lately.
  15. 2 Imposters in a natural sucker/ Red Horse Sucker theme. 6/0 Ahrex PR320 Predator Stinger Hooks. -big fly fiber, sf fiber, squimpish fibers, hedron flashabou blends, strung fuzzy fiber head (on right), Just Add H20 2" Minnow Head Brush (left fly).
  16. You can make money selling fly tying materials as long as you are using a process to make them unique or to find materials and re-market them. There is no money at the end of the day in just reselling from distributors like Wapsi and Hareline because the amount of money required for inventory, and the budget for marketing is insane. But you can develop a small line of materials- dubbings, custom dyed feathers or bucktails, etc and do pretty well. I've been tying and selling flies as a living full time since 2017. In that time I lost a lot of money compared to even a pretty low level job. It pays the bills at times, but it's not sustainable.
  17. Loving this style of patterns- my personal terrestrial box is way out of date- and needing some of these. Ps- what camera and lens are you using- photos look great
  18. Thanks- tried deleting the photos from March- it won't let me lol. But lots of production this month so far.
  19. Orders this month- Lot of Flugenzombies, Flugenzombie Minis, Gravity Rainbows, Double Barrel Poppers, Prime Shrimp, various pike flies, etc.
  20. Finished Order of Gravity's Rainbows and Flugenzombies, the new Flugenzombie Rainbow color variant, and a high and tight Bucktail Deceiver in a EP Peanut Butter color.
  21. Here is a Hover 2.0 It's really cool because there is a Flymen Double Popper in the front as like an extreme intruder bump but what it does is keep the fly from nose diving head first on the pause. Really cool suspending effect in the water. Definitely will have a few more of these in my pike boxes for Spring. -XXL Pacchiarini Dragon Tail -4/0 Partridge Universal Predator X Size 2 Ahrex Predator Trailer Hook 60# titanium wire connection Hollow Bucktail Tail Yellow Chartreuse Flashabou Blend- Magnum Flash Blend (Straight Gold x 4, Opal x 4, Green x 4, Silver x 2) cut in half and tapered 60/40 Standard Flashabou Blend- Silver, Opal, Glow in the Dark Green Body- Chocklett Filler Dub with Chartreuse Polar Chenille Head- Medium Flymen Head Hollow Bucktail- Yellow Chartreuse Hollow Tied Squimpish (very sparse for flash/taper) Head- 3" EP Chromatic Brush Black Eyes- Fly Tyer's Dungeon Glued with 5 min epoxy Coated with Solarez Flex Resin
  22. Definitely not to just cut wing cases- I know a lot of pike guys who use them to cut custom ultra suede tail shapes- stuff like cohen's tails, kiley's stuff, paccharini, etc. All can be cut on those machines. I think Pat uses a laser cutting machine, but it's a pretty thin materials. Off the top- I would cut foam strips, ultra suede tails, raffia, stencil patterns, -
