  1. David, Nice flies (and site). It was nice meeting you at the symposium a couple weeks ago. I put the peacock feather you gave me to use in a fly already. I'll try to get a pic up soon.
  2. Schmookler mentioned the next issue at the "Great Chicken Hackle Cartel" discussion in Somerset this weekend. He said the next issue was due out in January 07 and would focus on dry fly hackle. Also, I was just on the Art of Angling website and it looks like the subscription fee is per 4 issues, not per year.
  3. I'll be there on Saturday. Hopefully the vendor count goes up from previous years.
  4. Nice fly. Congrats on the fish.
  5. Hey guys. I used this pattern this weekend on Crappie. It did real well for me. Try it on a sinking line. The body is made from a floating jig head used for conventional fishing--I just added a tail.

  7. Unfortunately, Mr. Bruce closed his shop several years ago. Any of his books are a good read though. He has a wealth of knowledge to share. I have one of his other books and it has several original fly patterns, I'd imagine the smallmouth one is the same.
  8. Joe, I generally tie mine that way. In my experience, tying the lead eyes near the hook eye gives more vertical jigging action. Tying the lead eyes 1/3 to 1/2 of the shank away from the hook eye maintains the horizontal position while sinking. I also find that tying the eyes nearer the center of the shank makes them slightly easier to cast. With the weight near the hook eye I seem to get a hinging effect when casting. I may just need to upsize my tippet though.
  9. Nice fly. And looks easy!
  10. Hey Guys. I've been using a lot of arctic fox tail lately and this is one of the flies I came up with. The construction is faily basic. Its mostly a saltwater version of a Temple Dog which is a salmon pattern. There's also a color variation in fly details page.

  12. Good stuff. Do you have a tarpon trip planned?
  13. Cool fly. Finnish racoon is my favorite material at the moment.
  14. Hey guys. I consider this a variation of a Feather Brain in that it's not really tied with hackles over and under to create the shape. Instead, I just used four large hackles directly on each side to give the shape. I also didn't use a spreader inside, I built up the inner body with lite brite.
