    Whats your poison?

    big ole bump, freds goin through hoops to raise some bucks here people, from what i see, hes got a third of whats invested.....time not included
  5. ya know, someone that has material, (lots of it), and knows whats what, is ronn lucas sr., he just happens to quarterback the monthly meetings here on FTF, and its a great time. got one coming up this sat. you should join in, cant think of a better way to get involved...
  6. the best resource i know of is feathersmc.com, hands down, john will know what your talking about...... not to discourage you, but if your a working stiff like me, even the affordable stuff is expensive. so my advice is take it slow, and tie the crap out of a said pattern, and make it worth it. there can be a ton of different feathers, patterns, real, and substitute. and theres a ton of money to be spent, but in the end, we all just want to tie a fly. so pick a pattern man, and have some fun.

  7. what alex said........ also, helps to fold the feather before the tie in. i find it gives it a more agressive look
  8. just a quick question about proportions. if im tying a fly, say, a sir herbert, and recipe calls for....tinsel three fourths, and seal fur one fourth... if im supposed to make 5 wraps of rib, ill only have one wrap on the fur, so where am i supposed to start the hackle? ive tried to start it in the tinsel, but looked like crap. i do realize that what looks good in my eye is right, but is there a rule for this kind of arrangement?
  9. figured it out, its alex"s wife, and she must have seen the tying class posts !
