  1. Have you ever tried that micro-tubing stuff? It might decrease the bulk of the body and increase the gap between hook and body just a little. I still love this fly - I added it to my blog - brandon722.blogspot.com
  2. This is a very informative site: FlyArtStudio.com
  3. I've used it. It never broke on me, but it does fray easily. Other than that, I didn't see any added incentive for the extra $3 a spool. I can see using it on deer hair where you need a ton of pressure. I never spun deer hair and used the gel spun thread.
  4. Fly Tying magazine had some great bonefish patterns last issue - check out this link. Very easy to tie and killers! Fly Tying Mag
  5. That is one of the best shrimp patterns I've seen tied. I bet it would look great with a pink latex coat instead of the clear - or maybe light pink dubbing. So many options and so real looking. What size is that fly? It might be difficult to tie in size 22 or 24 for the fish here in CO.
  6. Looks a lot like a meat whistle to me
  7. Ever buy Dai Riki hooks in those plastic snap together boxes? Well, drill a hole in the top of them and they are the perfect size for a bag full of dubbing.
  8. If you like something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:IT&ih=019 I can probably help you out. Brandon
  9. Togen Enterprises is located in canada. Great stuff, at discounted prices. They also have an eBay store. http://www.togenenterprises.com/home.html
  10. That is a beautiful fly - great detail. Flies like this are great looking and you just know they will catch fish.
  11. I have a bit of an "in" with a Dai Riki reseller - I just bought 1350 hooks from him and he quoted me 7.4 cents per hook. PM me if you want his contact info. He is a prominent eBay seller with a great feedback rating.
  12. Well - I got them in the mail on Wednesday - a whole bunch of them. If anyone needs a few (they are still cheaper than buying them at the fly shop), please let me know - I can break up the huge lot I got. They come in packs of 5 and they are black.
  13. I'd be interested as well - I was just about to buy 700 Dai Riki hooks - so if that is the brand you are buying, please let me know.
  14. I went to the store near my work on Tuesday and they had none. The manager checked the stock in the other stores and it was pretty limited. Some had 1, others had 3, one had 7 and one had 11. They are located on the end caps or in teh middle of the isle on display in the stores - so they definitely get high exposure. The part # is 171108 (I believe) - if you call, they can check the stock at your local store (or surrounding stores) for you.
