  1. I use the cutters and turning tools from Steve Winters for all my foam poppers. They have worked great for me for several years now. Here's his site. http://emerald.jvlnet.com/~swinters/
  2. Thanks Smalliehunter, thought I had done something wrong. I knew it look kind of funny for me to have a personal message from the classic fly tying and I never visit there..
  3. My PM option seems to be gone..... No PM tab when I log-in. Tried sending PM to another member and this is what I get (The error returned was: You are not allowed to use the messenger feature on this board) What's gone wrong....... Got an e-mail saying I had a PM, logged on to find this. Have I been hacked or something???? Thanks for any help. :wallbash: NCBluegill
  4. A nice looking box of flies landed in my mailbox last week. Can't wait for those warmer temps.
  5. Keep any of my extras also BB. You do a wonderful job hosting for sure. :headbang:
  6. You can also check out Kent's web site for a better step by step of his spider along with several other of his patterns. http://www.flyfishga.com click on the fly box.
  7. First time posting a step by step. Best pic I could get with the camera I used. Wouldn't focus up close. Time to update the camera for sure..
  8. Step by Step posted today. Flies going out this week. Work has had me out of town alot the last couple of weeks. http://www.flytyingforum.com/index.php?showtopic=41210
  9. Materials list for my version of Kent Edmonds Tokyo Spider. Hook Mustad 94840 size 8 Thread Fly-master plus Body 2mm craft foam cut in 3/8 wide strips Legs Medium round rubber Tie on and build a good thread base stopping thread halfway between the hook point and eye. Apply head cement or zap to thread base to help hold the foam strips in place. Tie in one foam strip at the halfway point extending back. Tie in second foam strip at the halfway point extending forward Cut small foam strip, round corners on front side. Apply head cement or zap and place behind halfway point. Pull rear foam strip over the small square and tie in. Hold both strips up away from hook and advance thread forward behind eye. Tie off both strips. Trim the back strip flush with your tie off. Soft wrap the thread back to the halfway point Fold front strip back, tie in and trim. Tie in legs. I prefer 2 strips per side. Apply glue of choice to entire exposed thread.
  10. I'm sure it will be attach a pic, tie a fly, attach a pic, tie a fly, but will get it done. Take care and looking foward as always to some new bluegill candy for the spring.
  11. Hey, Ncbluegills. It's great to hear from you. I was hoping you would get in on this one. I am delighted that you will be joining us. It's wonderful to be back with "old friends" again. Even though we've never met, personally, there are guys on this list that I think of as friends who enrich my life. There are many, but you are one of them. Take care BB Same here BB. I may have fun attaching the pic for this swap since I live in the sticks and all we have is dial-up but were going to give it a try. May just have to attach them from work. Just don't tell on me....
  12. I'm in BB. Think I'll tie some sort of foam spider.
  13. http://www.jvlnet.com/~swinters/ This guy carries foam blocks in lots of colors along with the best cutters I've seen. I've been happy with his products so far. Hope this helps
  14. Got the goodie box today, great looking box of flies for sure. Thanks as always BB for a great swap. Tight lines NCBluegill
  15. Nice tie KYratchethead and nice to see you on the forum also.
