  1. Have to remember spent wings were once uprights. Not sure the fish can measure them but I wouldn't change the length too much.
  2. Most of the time right hand. I will use the left if the right is tied up holding something in place.
  3. Same as most, clockwise except for some ribbing.
  4. Going fishing this weekend and tied up a half a dozen. Look good hope they produce. go-n-fishn
  5. Great pictures to go with a great fly. Realy enjoy the step by steps jogs the memory for us old timers. go-n-fishn
  6. McKean County here, next door to Potter County some of the best fishing in the state. go-n-fishn
  7. What part of the Genesee are you going to fish? The upper end has some great hatches. March Browns and Hendricksons are good. Then the old stand by Adams and caddis flys are always good. Different sizes on the Adams and colors on the caddis. Tan and olive are always good. go-n-fishn
  8. Good job for the first try. Extended bodies is not the easiest place to start !! go-n-fishn
  9. Tie them parachute, the white post makes them easy to see and I think they are better if fishing over spooky fish. go-n-fishn
  10. Sorry for the late post but just happen to think of this book. Caucci/Nastasi Instant Mayfly Identification Guide ( Its kind of a spin off of their book Hatches) They also run the Deleware River Club on the West Branch of the Deleware River. Great little book the only address I can find is: Al Caucci Ent. RD#1, Box 102 Tannersville, Pa. 18372
  11. Checked one out today looks like a good line for $19.95 or whatever the price.Ill try it, what do you have to lose besides $19.95. I've waisted more on less.
  12. Here is one for ya!! I fish because I love to: because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful, and hate the environs where crowds of people are found, which are invariably ugly: because of all television commercials, cocktail parties, and assorted social posturing I thus escape: because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion: because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience: because I suspect that men are going along this way for the last time, and I for one don't want to waist the trip: because mercifully there are no telephones on trout waters: because only in the woods can I find solitude without loneliness: because bourbon out of an old tin cup always tastes better out there: because maybe one day I will catch a mermaid: and finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant---and not nearly so much fun.

  13. Geez my wife just walked in and said what the h--- are you trying to do. I told her I was on a fly fishing site and we're all bored.
  14. If the jaws are exploding like you say it sounds to me like they have a heat treat problem on their jaws. Poor quality control. They must be to brittle. go-n-fishn
  15. You can do what I just did, read the manual. I was surprised what all I can do with my Toshiba. I have a Toshiba PDR-M25 and I knew it had all the functions I wanted to use but it was so long that I used them I forgot how. By the time I use them again I'll probably have to cary the manual with me.
