I like the idea of the biot tree. I always have them going all over the place.

One thing about collecting road kill is it can be illegal. Kinda found that out the hard way collecting a bucktail. I didn't get a ticket but the warden didn't let me keep it either (I think he wanted it ).
I've got 3 of those pet clippers but do ya think I would have thought of that?
Just got a couple of lame ideas but they work for me:
Use a piece of drinking straw slit up the side to hold the hackle back when finishing the head.
I use a syringe with needle from the farm supply store for my head cement. I have a regular needle that fits inside anchored in cork for a cap.
Use vaious sizes of metal conduit from the hardware store or nearest building site to cut popper bodys

Simple Drying Rack (idea stolen from wherever Whomever made it to be sold in Orvis stores for way too much money!!! )
Drill (blind hole) base for dowel risers; your choice of height (4, 6 in. ???.)
Slot dowel heads for perpendicular insertion of bead chain 'clothesline', to hang finished flies on.
Glue dowel risers into blind socket in wood base.
Insert chain clothesline.

Dfix thats the reason i started this post because the general membership cant start a "new topic" in the "tip of the day".

HEY ADMIN! - May we please change the parameters of the Tips of the Day Forum to accommodate members' postings???

I just changed the permissions so that any registered member may now post a tip in that forum.
That was brother Hubbard's idea to have it work that way, so I'm telling him you thought his idea sucked.

Thank You for your timely reply to my query and proposed changes. I appreciate your immediate attention and diligence in making this forum more "user friendly."
Thank You, also, for volunteering to notify Mr. Hubbard of my shock and disbelief when, after all this time, this was brought to my attention only today. Again, I appreciate your consideration; however, you need not trouble yourself with such things-
I am capable of conveying that message myself.

Think we should move the thread now that the forum is open to all?
As for Hubbard, his (ab)use of make-up should have triggered the first flag... LOL
