    Song of the day

    Van Morrison for me. I can listen to him all day, all, week.
  2. I currently use a Renzetti Apprentise. I like it, but sometimes the jaws get in the way on certain flies, so I was looking for a new one. I bought a Renzetti Traveler 2000 and tried it on a few flies. I had a problem when I would gently nudge thw arm and it would slightly swivel away from me. I tried tightening the nut but didn't help so I returned it. But I did like the rotary function and the smaller jaws. I think it may have been a demo unit soi maybe that's why the nut wouldn't tighten down to stop the spin. Anyone with a Traveler have the same problem?
  3. I currently use a Renzetti Apprentise and really like it. The jaws are a little big for wrapping down to the bend and also adding tail material.. So I thought I would want a different jaw configuration andtrue rotary vise. So I bought a Renzetti Traveler 2000 and tied a number of flies on it. But I just nudged the arm a few times and it rotated away from me numerous times. I had the nut turned about as hard as I dared but didn't help so I retuned it. It may have been a demo unit,. So I'm thinking of trying another one. The true rotary was pretty neat for adding goose biots and turning rib wires.
  4. Why is it that nothing happens when I try to go to the next page?
  5. I quit 40 hears after a health scare.
  6. Thanks for the compliments. This was carved in tupelo wood and hand painted with acrylics, and powder pigments. The branch and stones were carved from basswood and also painted with acrylics using my airbrush. The over 20,000 scales were burned in, one by one, with a homemade burning tip.. This carving took 3rd place in the 2023 Ward World Wildfowl Carving Competition. They have a Fish Carving Division every other year. My two other carvings took 1st, a Brown Trout, and 2nd, a Steelhead. But this carving is my favorite.
  7. I'm from Macedon, east of Rochester, thanks for the welcome.
  8. New member from Finger Lakes area of NYS. Been tying flies for a couple of years now that I got back into fishing/fly fishing after a lapse of 20 years or so. It's my new passion. I've tied hundreds and hundreds of flies since I got back into it, and I think I've improved quite a bit. Looking forward to participating.
