  1. http://www.stillwaterflyfishingstore.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=16&zenid=im9q4lslvu3o13lp0p11c281k2 Brian Chan and Phil Rowley are 2 of the most knowledgeable fly tyers I have met. When it comes to freshwater chronnies and stuff nobody can touch them for their in depth knowledge. Both have videos on you tube as well. skip Morris is pretty good too. Marc
  2. It is a personal choice that fishers make. I like barbless and the it was mandatory in BC when I was out there made no difference. I have lost very few fish using them. I have even used them in the salt and caught 30-40 pd halibut. you just have to keep the pressure on em. marc
  3. I found this looking for something else. http://chichesterinc.com/RabbitZonkerStrips.htm Chichester supplies many craft stores also and has a very interesting lineup of products generally. marc
  4. Very nice. I would imagine that would work well for anything that eats mice. good color combo too. white on the bottom is important is many wild mice species have a whitish belly.. Marc
  5. I am all for supporting the local shop and of course the one here. Here is something I found today, not sure how well it works, but it loooks very interesting. http://www.dhgate.com/18-mixed-10-colors-synthetic-rooster-grizzly/p-ff80808138bd39080138d82d2b5f038b.html#s1-3-1 I found this one as I have always been looking for reindeer hide patches which I got a few years back in the Vancouver area. They also have quite a wide ranging product line including reindeer and anything else that moves including rabbit strips for tying purposes .http://www.chichesterinc.com/ As much as I like to support the shops, I also always look for a bargain. The reindeer which if you have never spun with is first rate and because it comes from Finland, it will be hollow. a pound of scraps goes for 40$, but these are fully tanned pieces that are leftovers.

  6. http://www.dhgate.com/18-mixed-10-colors-synthetic-rooster-grizzly/p-ff80808138bd39080138d82d2b5f038b.html#s1-3-1 I saw this elsewhere and got me searching.....I wonder.... Marc
  7. Great ties in general. I like the D' Mouse pattern. Marc
  8. this is a foam frog simple to tie.marc
  9. Good idea. if you think about when they cut plug for salmon on the west coast that is what they do. cut a frozen herring on a 45 dg angle and then it rolls through the water like an injured herring. never thought about translating it into a fly though, good thinking! Marc
  10. Though he was a gear angler, this could happento anyone. RIP and condolences to his family and friends. marc http://bassfederation.com/news/rogue-lightning-strike-claims-a-life-of-tbf-florida-member/
  11. If your in western canada, malcolm ruddick is the man. he dyes it better than anyone and will not divulge his secret. last I heard he and his wife were in the kamloops area.if his wife kathy is about, have a chat. the lady is one of the premier flyfishers in the world. marc
  12. very nice kirk! when is coming north. sadly, we cannot touch the bass here in Ontario until the last saturday of next month. marc
  13. I am a lefty but tie right handed. same as fishing. I learned on a right hand reel. marc
  14. I have had the total opposite. one year when I was fishing in the chicotin area of british columbia and I was looking for some trail access. a local rancher stopped and asked me if I wanted access to the river. he gave me access to several miles of the Blackwater river which is BCs only rated bluewater trout stream. I was the only one there. all he asked was that I close the gate when I left. as to the clown with his sprinklers, he should be charged. marc
  15. Ahh honey I bought some new tying material today. problem is I had to bring the stand the material was on home so it stayed straight. hope your not mad LOL
