  1. DFoster I am the total opposite of you I fly fish the most in the winter months and tie not all but a lot in the summer when temps get into the 90 and 100 degree.
  2. Oh I see lots of wet being tied with that skin have fun with it
  3. What I have used for a long time is a high E string from a guitar and what I have seen some tiers do with the guitar string the will take a used gun casing and insert the loose ends in and fill with lead. For me I always have used up guitar strings that I can clip a piece off and fold it in half one thing I like about the wire is that I can spin it in the tube and it will remove the wax build up from the thread.
  4. I was checking if anyone here has any Spey fly tying experience. I have seen photos of these flies and I am interested in tying some up and would like some pointers on materials and techniques I think fishing them on a sink tip for brown trout might be a a gas. Thanks
  5. Stay away from this place i know that the eye candy he has is very tempting and makes you want to place a order but the lack of service and if you will ever get your order is just not worth it. I would go to your local fly shop and check to see if they are a whiting dealer and let them know what you maybe looking for and hopefully they can get. There have been some great suggestions for other shops i can say the Blue Ribbon in West Yellowstone has always been helpful and I have had great luck with Bob Marriott in California has been helpful with hard to find item. Good luck
  6. Black eye's. The clear ones don't even look like they are there
  7. That would be a incredible offer to gift whiting necks or saddles to someone and if the offer was presented to me I would have to respectfully decline and ask that you gift to someone who could use them i have more than I want to count. I may one day be the one to do just such offer
  8. I would be happy to fish out of your fly box any time if your flies look like that. The more you tie the more you will find your rhythm and style and your flies will be consistent.
  9. There have been so many fly tyers that have inspired me over the years. Jack Dennis i was lucky to meet and tye with him as well as Gary LaFontaine sat in a class that he was giving what a great and kind soul. John Shewey what great technician when it came to Spey and steelhead flies. Marvin Nolte one of the most knowledgeable individuals to tie classic salmon flies. There is Brian wise on youtube that has been great to learn from when it come to articulated streamers I love his videos but for me I never listen to the music that is embedded not my style but if you like great content with out the long drawn out explanation how to he is well work the time to watch. Then there are the member on this forum that inspire me on a daily basis some are the newer tyer as well as the long time tyer and to see what they have to share the depth of knowledge here is priceless
  10. That is a great book I have owned it at one time enjoy it.
  11. I have been having this problem from the time I started using this site I cannot go to the next page or go back a page what ever the pages showing are the only once I can view. I have a lap top, a ipad, droid and there is different between the product I just have lived with it even though I would like to see posting that folks have shared.
  12. Vicente I like the labels and how they have them flipped for me a good Stout or brown ale works
  13. Tidewaterfly If you like the Blacker fly plates I think that you will like the George Kelson plates from the Salmon Fly

  15. I have a tiemco that was available for a very short time and didn't like it so gave it away to a friend I think he may still have it
