  1. if you look at lucs feedback rating, it also lets you know what the same people....over, and over again....are willing to pay. kinda puts the kybosh on us working folk.........my pet peave i guess. i dont think J.Mc has an interest in making dollars off of the kori, hes, well, kinda the poster child for kori.....for lack of better words
  2. maybe i didnt express myself quite right.... what id like to do, is keep a list of everyones ebay id"s on hand, so we arent competing
  3. a recent auction, and another recently brought up on this board has got me to thinking.....if i knew everyones ebay handles, i wouldnt be bidding against another forum member, and driving the price up!, (unless your the seller, in which case, this idea sucks). but what im thinking, (and this happens rarely),....if we know another forum member is bidding, and instead of bidding against, maybe get ahold of said member, and maybe bid WITH that member, split the spoils. its going to be a win win situation....i guess even for the seller. thoughts on this??? thanks, "brewersbestbeer" Mike

    Forum Slow

    33.something something seconds from this topic to the "fly tying" link in the top left hand corner of the page, right under jstockards link..............wow. and it was at this time
  5. bigger hook and you got it beat, welcome to the forums. Mike
  6. been seriously checking out the JS egg material deal as of late, mcflyfoam for under $3.00 , shipping to canada is going to be the kicker tho
  7. just got my order in from john mclain, (under 2 weeks, he must know someone at the border), anyways, beeeutiful royal palm, marries all the way to the tip, and a great dye job......also very nice seal fur, and more than enough chinese body hackle.
  8. late reply here royce, i didnt see this till now, sorry. ive got palms, narragansetts, and blacks, but am narrowing it down....considerably, like to none. acctually a friend of mine is taking them, i hope he can do a better job with the feathers than i did. the guy i bought my incubators from raises the hollands, the tails didnt look any better than my palms. id say the palm is the best bet for nice tails if you want white. Mike
  9. just ordered some royal palm from john, sheweys stuff seems a little pricey, and my own turkeys arent worth dyeing......they are great for the freezer, but in a Carne voice, "my feathers are cack".
  10. there was a hatches article on the subject a while back.........its in the may issue, tried to post a link, but screwed it up :wallbash: .
  11. i betcha the gurus on the rod building forum could help ya out. the dt6f looks like a double taper 6 wt floating line though :dunno:
  12. heyyyyy, i recognize that spot. thanks danny. nice fish man
  13. just tried it from my favourites....it might be gone
  14. very sexy body work Bud....ill never understand hoe to make seal for that full....great tie
  15. from one old coot to another.....have a good day Bud.
  16. no problems dave, we all get busy. and moving is a pain in the ass.......id rather staple my own head to the floor
  17. heres my second, i could talk about what went wrong...but whats the point, (i could go on and on), so ill say what went right , tippets came out much better than the first. im getting better at manipulation, and not mutilation. my wing meets the throat, (this was huge for me). the head on my second didnt finish up on the gut, although my head cement bled. the wing, ahhhh the wing. it had a great shape, and almost met the topping..k, ill say what went wrong here....when i trimmed the butts, i pulled the bottom two marries towards the head....anyways, first is first, second is second.
  18. will, i just ordered today......no shipping charges???, im in canada, and must cost something to ship....$5.56 for the magazine, shipping included.....you cant be making a whole lot???? suggestion --- charge something for shipping, its gotta cost you something.
  19. john....thats as clean as they come.....very nice work...very...very nice
  20. tried to upload and have no idea where my new cam puts them, i can email them fine, just sent out a bunch to dave....maybe you can help me??
  21. i agree about the posts and flies.......but i aint huggin ya
  22. dont rule out your old girls mascara, works great on single feathers
  23. just got back from the dieppe fly fishing show, i was there only a couple of hours, and it was BUSY, too many people around for me, but hope the vendors and tyers did well. met damian, and Jacques Héroux, very nice people. both were very busy. damian was signing autographs even, which was nice to see. watched him tie for a while, and seen a few of his flies, very impressive. he makes the nor-vise look easy. would have liked to chat and pick his brain a little more, but again, he was busy, and i figured id let him work. i was planning on taking some pics, and posting....but remembered the camera half way there, and wasnt turning around to get it. there were some crazy crafts there that i just cant believe, a lady from PEI made a few quilts, alot of work goes into a basic quillt, but when she sews in some classic salmon flies on them, then they become impressive, VERY impressive....my daughter just informed me she took some pics of the quilts on her cell phone, as soon as we figure out how to post them, we will post. anyways, it was a good time, and the show was put together very well! Mike wish the twins a happy birthday for me damian
