  1. I forgot to mention earlier that I did go back to Spinney and I used for the first time a 1/2 " Thingamabobber and I love the jam feature. I used it with some of my ancient emergers and once the proper depth was determined for my fly the action started.
  2. Good evening Sandan. Thank you for the list of patterns. I'm very familiar with the RS2. I've used the pattern years ago and find it very customizable. I don't think that I'll go lower then a size 18 due to my eyes not being as strong as they were once before. Your suggestions are appreciated.
  3. Good evening Timijin. Thank you for the video on the Greg's emerger pattern. I have been collecting patterns and will be tying some as soon as as I finish a woodworking project. I'm looking forward to trying the new patterns on the waters in my area. Thanks again.
  4. Hello Sandan. I've been tying for about 50 years and a lot has changed in patterns and materials it's hard to keep up. I'm not strictly old school but I'm always open for new patterns. I'm unable to use a fly rod for long periods of time due medical reasons but I make the best of it. Any insight on the best patterns to use on this area would be great.
  5. Hello flytire. Thank you for the information on patterns for emergers. rs2's are my favorite years ago and so easily adapted to your local waters. I'm gathering info on patterns and the color plate link is ideal. Many thanks for your help.
  6. My Son-in-Law and I went to the spillway at Spinney reservoir here in Colorado and other anglers were fishing emerger patterns and doing quite well. My supply of emergers didn't seem to do well for me there as they have years ago at other waters in Colorado, I know my angling education is lacking about the newest patterns and techniques of emerger fishing especially for Spinney reservoir. I need help with learning about the newer patterns of emergers and the latest ways to fish them as well as well as to what newer materials are used. Any suggestions would be appreciated on newer patterns, types of hooks used and whatever else. Thank you all for your help.
  7. Hello mikemac1. Thank you for your information. I'll look into the book.
  8. Thank you blackfoots for your information. I have always liked these bushy floating flies and yes, they do float and catch trout.
  9. Thank you SBPatt for the pictures of your pattern. I never tied a pattern such as yours but I'll give it a try.
  10. Thank you Woodenlegs for your reply. I'll add these to my list to tie up.
  11. I enjoy tying and use the Stimulator and I know that there are others out there that fish the pattern also. I wanted to ask everyone, what are your favorite Stimulator colors?
  12. Thank you for the welcome Troutrtramp. Today will be a good day to start tying up my flies for this year since we're suppose to get about 12 inches of snow during the next two days.
  13. Thank you for you welcome skeet3t.
  14. Thank you mikechell for your welcome. Looking forward to being more involved on this site.
