  1. I'm the same as letumgo. I don't know how many spools of black 6/0, bundles of pearl krystal flash, and size 12 dry fly hooks I have because I couldn't remember if I was out or not. And turkey biots...they always look like different shades of BWO in the shop, so I've just gotta get it. Get 'em home & you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. MTtyer, those blue zonker strips make very effective crayfish claws on olivish 'dad patterns.
  2. Check Home Depot/Lowes etc for double-sided tool boxes. I use one for my portable tying kit. It has clear lids on either side and holds a ton of stuff. I think the original intended use was an electricians tool kit. You'll have to pack the vise separately though.
  3. So what are you so pissed off about? Based on the number of posts you've made over the last 48 hours, and the frequency of those posts, I'd say you're not among those hard working, doubleshifting folks...you wouldn't have time for it.
  4. I just give the wire a wiggle & a snap. Metal fatigue is sometimes a good thing. I don't have to stop & pick up another tool to trim the excess. But I have to agree you can't beat a pair of .99 cent clippers to do the dirty work.
  5. Ya know, where I'm from when a man apologizes you accept the apology, shake his hand and move on. The comments by a couple of people after Night Fish apologized show me who the better man is. Where's the mod who said "threats" don't belong here? I'd say that threats of violence are worse than legal action.
  6. I have had really good luck with a brown tail, peacock herl body and brown hackle. I tie them with gold wire/bead and copper wire/bead.
  7. I hate tying humpies. I either screw up the wing proportion or my body looks like it has cellulite. That's one pattern I have no problem buying.
