  1. Don't forget to quarantine them for a week, we wouldn't want all that "niceness" to spread!! lol
  2. I'll echo Old Hat on this one. Try a Regal out for a night if you can, just to see, it really is a fantastic vise and with the standard jaws you can hold a very wide range of hooks tighter than you'd even need. As for the storage thing, head to your local Walmart or someplace like that and grab one of those plastic jobbies that have drawers and sit on the floor. You can put a whack of stuff in there and its super light if you have to lug stuff around the house to tie at the place of choice for the evening like i do. Hope this helps a bit Cheers and welcome to the addiction :gunsmilie:
  3. Didn't see nuthin :smoke:
  4. Just got back from testing out the pattern im tying, rich. Lets call it Red Rocket, it took some nice brookies tonight, hopefully you all like it! Cheers
  5. Gotta go with atlantic salmon on this one, feeling that tug on the line and seeing that silver flash when they leave the water gives me a rush like no other, time and time again.
  6. From what I'm reading, the guy from the RV park was watching him fish the area first. Beginner or not ya don't just go stand where someone was just casting. I thought that came with havin a set... :dunno:
  7. Wow those are nice, fantastic work!
  8. Nice!! I was a little worried bout them getting there, glad to see you got em! :cheers:
  9. Hi my name is yellow bomber and I'm a Swapaholic. pattern TBD
  10. Cant go wrong with a couple white tailed green machines and yellow winged butterflies
  11. Yeah those were the ones that didn't make it into the first box! Glad they got there, hope you enjoy :cheers: The little container thing is supposed to be for hockey cards, picked up a few from Eskape Anglers in Riverview, seems to be a decent swap box, you should get a few uses out of that one too! It's waaaaaay cheaper to mail than the altoids tin.
  12. I'll second that, i know it must be time consuming but it would be a fantastic help for us rookies
  13. I just sent a package out for the Steelhead Swap and there were no declaration forms to fill out or anything of the sort. I bought a IRC, put it in the envelope, they put a stamp on it and it was done with. Wonder whats gonna happen at the border with this one?
  14. Very nice Old Hat! Added to the bookmarks and soon to the flybox. ibian, black squirrel tail is a decent sub for black bear, i've used it alot lately and it seems to work out just fine.
  15. They've been trying to do that for years here and it's basically blown up in their faces. Too hard to police and enforce it, but a fantastic way for the ****** government to fill their pockets with more of our money.
  16. Awesome ties everyone!! Horseshoes, thanks for everything, this was a lot of fun and a big hats off for the extras you tied. That big ugly bomber was mine not lykos33 lol, it may be ugly but it produces! Can't wait to try some of these, thanks again everyone, just like salmo-salar said, you've made my first swap emjoyable as well and i look forward to many more!
  17. Thanks for the reply you guys, that description from halcyon just about sums it up. The guy i watched said something about lining up the strips of mallard so that when placed together the tips were supposed to be flowing in the opposite directions of eachother, which was making me think i had to put shiny side to dull side since thats the only way a left and right can go together without flowing in the same direction. I dunno, it's makin me crazy though, lol, they keep splitting in the center on me, hopefully it comes with practice
  18. I've been buggering with this for the last month and just can't seem to get it right, I've looked online and went to my local fly shop and watched the guy do it there but I can't remember the exact method by the time I get home. I've got quality feathers from Hareline but can't get it to work right. Does anyone know of a good tutorial anywhere on the web thats for this, or can offer some suggestions. Thanks in advance for any help, i'm at the point in my first Classic (Butcher) that this needs to be done and its all thats holdin me back. :wallbash:
  19. It amazes me how Canada Post can have their head so far buried in their .... It cost me $15.00 LESS to send the same envelope to Ontario as it did to send it to Nova Scotia. The reason you ask? Because this one "went through the cutout in the board easier"!!!! No joke, thats what the almighty Postal Worker told me! And to top it all off, Nova Scotia is 1500 kms closer! :poop: What did you use to get it through the cut out? I use Altoid tins but once it hits the bubble wrap envelope it's too fat. Do you use the bubble wrap envelopes? Asked the owner of the local fly shop, and he gave me a hockey card protector type thing. It's under 1/2" thick and holds flies nicely. I'm gonna pick a few more up and will send you a couple if you like. I didn't use a padded envelope either.
