  1. I use an Anvil Apex for trout flies, bass bugs, big streamers, and basically every other kind of fly short of saltwater.
  2. Great streamer Deeky
  3. Neat, I'd like to see a picture.
  4. Nothing funny about a hook in the hand....have done it myself on several occasions, although never to the degree that you experienced. Hope you heal up quick
  5. I prefer to not hold the scissors in my hand while tying. It could be just me but I feel I can turn out a cleaner fly without the scissors constantly occupying the palm of my hand.
  6. That's really cool man. Good to hear
  7. Got mine. Amazing bunch of flies. Thanks for hosting Chris!
  8. Yes and yes to the other question too
  9. Pretty darn good for a first few. Just a few techinical points: the body is too bulky and it is uneven. The peacock herl head needs to be more dense and compact. Also the hackling could be a bit more uniform. I really like the wing and the tail however. Analysis: A great fly that will probably catch a good many fish
  10. Uhhhh a slight problem guys..........I'm not in this swap....and the Mystery box just showed up on my door. Pat around the holidays you sent me an invite to this round and I decided to sit out....but now my name is on the list. So I'm just confused. I guess I'll just send it on to Frank since his name is next.
  11. I'm not familiar with that one. Could I get a recipe or perhaps a picture?
  12. Sounds like a fish story to me.....
  13. It can be used as a rib just like gold wire. It does give a different effect, one I happen to like and make use of in many of my flies
  14. Like Cheri my favorite fly to fish is a streamer....stripped. For tying I really like Nymphs and Soft-hackles.
  15. The Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF) is an image of a small region of space in the constellation Fornax, composited from Hubble Space Telescope data accumulated over a period from September 24, 2003 through to January 16, 2004. It is the deepest image of the universe ever taken by humans. The HUDF image was taken in a section of the sky with a low density of bright stars in the near-field, allowing much better viewing of dimmer, more distant objects. The image contains an estimated 10,000 galaxies. Next Subject: Deep Sea Water Pressure
  16. I don't know but that man looks very smug, possible due to the fact that he has an impressive collection and he knows you can't get at with a sharp pair of scissors.
  17. Gold Ribbed Hair's Ear Nymph would be my choice.
  18. Elk Hair Caddis, Hair's Ear Nymph, Peeping Caddis, some random attractor nymphs, a few winged wets, and a handful of Adams make up my main small stream box. --but maybe I should add that I carry about 3 boxes for back country fishing, filled with a large assortment of producing flies.
  19. Radiocarbon dating, or carbon dating, is a radiometric dating method that uses the naturally occurring radioisotope carbon-14 (14C) to determine the age of carbonaceous materials up to about 58,000 to 62,000 years. However, as a side note, there are many cases to support the fact that Carbon dating is not very reliable for accurate dates. This is so because of a number of reasons. I would be happy to elaborate on that via PM if anybody finds fault with this Next Topic: Navy SEAL's
  20. :shifty: I'll give you a hint.....he was deeply entrenched in the French Revolution...his first name was Maximilian....now c'mon I'm waiting for a mind blowing fact.....:shifty:
