  7. Thanks for the reply Nj and Rob.
  8. Very Nice pattern. Fish getter for sure.
  9. I am going to start tying about a bunch of these to try under some french nymphing techniques. Just a couple question about tying the Czech nymphs and Knapek CZ hooks 1) When tying a Czech why use white thread. 2) What are Knapek hook like, preferably their Czech Nymph hooks. If by any chance you have them in in a size 12, 14, and 16 could you take a picture of them compared to a penny or quarter. Thanks Wellman
  10. A new addition to the fly pattern database has been submitted by Wellman: Hybrid Minnow
  11. I would love to see a sbs of the purple fly.
  12. Yet again awesome Pattern. A parkland must.
  13. I don't know how I didn't see this earlier but awsome tie!! Do you use the Rabbit strips as a shellback. I guess I have some tying to do this week.
  14. Last week the temperature was in the -45C for 6 days straight. Now the Chinook Winds are here and it feels like heaven. (-12)C. Northern Canada Prairie Winters Suck.
  15. I've tied a ton of flies with CCG and have had no issues whatsoever. It comes in tack-free versions and has no issues with yellowing or fracturing when your backcast sends it into hard surfaces such as rocks. When a pressure line in my car sprung a leak last winter, I used CCG to patch the hole, and it held no problem. When the chock that holds my driver's side window to the track that guides it up and down broke over the summer, I used CCG to fix it. In each case the CCG underwent extreme temperature fluctuations and didn't fail. The stuff is bombproof, and will never lose clarity. Great product, great company, great service. And I don't get anything for saying all that. I never said that CCG was not strong or its yellows after time. Before I started using Loon Uv, I would use CCG to patch a seem on my float tube. After about 12 hours on the water I would have to do it again. While camping I meet group of fly fisherman from New York they recommended to try Loon UV Wader Repair. After about 30 + hours with Loon I have yet to reapply.
  16. Looks castable! Very nice.
  17. Really like the 1st one!!

    And lots of them. http://www.break.com/cue-the-cuervo/thousa...der-ice-1977193
  19. Loon in my personal opinion make the best. I have used CCG, and I find that it is tougher work with and not as clear as loon. Plus loon is cheaper and does not have that tacky feel. As far as protective glasses go I don't know, never worn any.
