  1. and at the "bangles" type stores in the malls,where they sell the earrings and other cheap bangles.. Murray bangles??? what are those?
  2. Where would I find pre-wrap?
  3. I appreciate the great suggestions. Is flexi floss the stuff that comes on a spool and is applied with a bobbin?
  4. Using traditional humpy pattern with floss body. The body kept unraveling after a few fish. What other materials can I substitute to make a more durable humpy body?
  5. Al I visited you website and wanted to say I enjoyed your Tips and Ticks, thanks. http://www.btsflyfishing.com/
  6. What do you guys think of this pattern? Would it ride hook down since the rabbit strip is over the cone? Weamer Streamer http://www.montanafly.com/productDetail.php?p_id=950
  7. Chris, On the Double Bunny, if you weight the shank does it ride hook up or down? Max.
  8. You do have a good point. I was pleased with the action.
  9. Al, I had attached the rabbit wing matuka style but used about 10 wraps of lead behind the cone. I will try reversing the wing and see what happens. I would be pleased if it rides hook up. I am also going to try using less lead. Thanks for the reply. Max.
  10. I tied a cone head steamer with lead wrapped on the shank. It had brown rabbit on top with white marabou on the bottom. I was hoping the brown would ride up with a white under belly. It rode on its side. If it was a conehead only would it ride hook down? If it was lead shank only would it ride hook down?
  11. Thanks for all the help guys. Looks like I shouldn't have any problem down to size 20. :thumbsup: So far the best price I have found is $130. Maybe an after Christmas sale will pop up soon.
  12. I am looking for a vise that will hold trout flies rock solid. I mostly tie trout nymphs size 12 & 14, midges in size 18 & 20, buggers in size 8 & 6. Would the Dyna-King Kingfisher be a good fit for my tying? Very interested to hear how it does with the size 20 hook? I do want to stay as close to $130 as possible. Sorry, there isn't one in town for me to try, it would be purchased over the net. Thanks for the help.
  13. My Zap-a-gap came with a small long nozzle. I have no idea how to get it on or cap it when done. So what do you use Zap-a-gap for the most?
  14. How does the Pig Sticker fish? Better than the SWJ? Nice flies.
  15. I have been using the Skinny Nelson, works as baetis or midge. http://www.charliesflyboxinc.com/flybox/de...fm?parentID=152 easy tie http://www.charliesflyboxinc.com/flybox/de...cfm?parentID=62 or this http://www.charliesflyboxinc.com/flybox/de...cfm?parentID=95
