  1. Very cool Jamie!!! I like the way your topping cascades and nice job on blending the seal as well!! Keith
  2. Very nice flies Luke and nice fish as well!!! Keith
  3. I have a question??? I stood in front of Charlie Chute at Somerset for 5 hours and watched him work on a green highlander. I am working on another Green Highlander myself; I want to tie them in a few different ways. My question is about tippets, I am use to doing the "z" thing to get over any humps made by body taper or throat hackle. I have become good at this way of mounting the tippets but I don't believe Charlie did this and I can't remember exactly what he did. His tippets still stayed flush to the body of the fly, he flattened out the rachis with tweezers maybe curved them a little but there was no "z". Are there other ways of mounting the tippets quicker and still stay flush?? I was thinking mount them before you do the throat possibly?? Any suggestions or lessons would be appreciated Keith
  4. I have wondered about that as well. I am right handed and I feel I am doing the ribbing backwards on the fly. I was winding the ribs as shown in pictures. I grew up tying trout and steelhead flies and I always was rib going under the body and not start wrapping over the body, if that makes sense. I just starting doing it opposite tying salmon flies.

  7. Hi, Does anyone have a picture of Mr. Carne's way of mounting the flies in the frames?? Thanks, Keith
  8. Hi Jamie, I really like it Jamie, the fly has great flow to it. I can see how you got inspired by the lake erie tribs. You will have to go to the lake ontario tribs and get inspired to tie a big nasty LOL!!! Really that fly is beautiful, nice job!!!! P.S. Who did you borrow that steelie from to take that picture?? J/K LOL!! Keith
  9. PFFT Sleep who needs it!!!! Anyhow I remember a certain person promising a fly called insomnia when he got back from Somerset,, I never did see that posting???? Hmmmm Keith

  17. Very nice Matt, I was wondering what you have been doing since we got back from Somerset!! LOL!!! Great job! Keith
  18. Ok, First off is someone knows a place where I can buy magic mallard for my roofs let me know LOL!!!!! At least I have a somewhat of a roof on the fly this time; I think im getting that figured out. As for the wing, excuse the red I don't know what I thought I was reading, I blame that on being awake in the middle of the night LOL!! BTW this one was tied on a 3/0 I think it would have been easier on a larger hook but I own up to an agreement I made with flounder a while back. I think the sides could have been more, the wood duck that is. Any comments or suggestions I would appreciate!!! Thanks again, Keith
  19. Great job!! I love the body work. Keith
