  1. I'm probably going to tie both and send the least horrible of the two out as part of the swap.
  2. So I’m looking at either a red butt peacock soft hackle or a red tag wet fly.
  3. Sign me up. I’m still not sure of the pattern yet. I have yet to tie a decent soft hackle.
  4. Received a nice box of flies in the mail today. Along with some materials for me to experiment with. Thanks for hosting @WWKimba
  5. I smashed mine prior to sending, but like you I always smash the barbs. I didn’t even think about it.
  6. Thanks for the info. I have been cutting the foam by hand and I liked the slightly wider look, but if a thinner one is more attractive to fish then I will definitely give it a try. The tail has just been a mostly stripped rabbit strip. I am guessing to get thinner I need to just cut in half length wise.
  7. All I was able to track down was veevus 100d. I hadn’t seen the above post. Hopefully it will work ok. That stuff seems almost like unwaxed dental floss.
  8. I have been using a little comb that came where the beard trimmer to remove underfur. It always seems that after use no the hair stacker there is still a little left. I have never noticed a waxiness on the deer hair. I will have to check the couple pieces I have to see if either has it. Gel spun thread sounds like it could be interesting to work with. My scissors are a cheap pair, hopefully they will be up to the task and not make them any worse than they already are for the finer work.
  9. Thank you. I have edited for correct spelling.
  10. I had never heard of gel spun thread. Thanks for the heads up I will check it out.
  11. I am looking a trying the master splinter as well. I want to get some different colored rabbit strips before trying that one.
  12. I’m headed to Yellowstone in mid-October so I’m trying to tie some streamers and other things that might entice the large browns moving up the Madison.
  13. I tried my hand at tying a morrish mouse. I’m positive I need heavier thread. The uni 136D broke when I was really tensioning the deer hair. I also know I need to work on my trimming skills of the bottom. I’m looking for any additional feedback as well as any tips to keep everything from spinning around the hook shank. I’m pretty sure everything is going to end up on the bottom after a couple days f casts.
