    Solar Eclipse

    That about sums up my feelings as well. It was 90% here in Long Island too. It didn’t really get very dark, which surprised me. We had a little viewing party in the parking lot at work, which was fun. While the eclipse was cool to see, in some sense it is really not any different than a bus passing in front of a street light. I’d love to have been on a trout stream in a totality zone though.

    Fly shop

    I made an order from them recently as well, and was pleased.
  3. I have generally had good experiences. The exception being Marriot’s, where you place an order and half the items are out of stock, but they don’t tell you until after the order is placed.
  4. Have not tied any salmon dries before and would like to try a few. What’s a standard hook for these that is readily available?
  5. Silver Grey Materials: Too damn many, LOL Reference: Poul Jorgensen Salmon Flies
  6. Nice tie niveker, and thanks for taking on the challenge!
  7. I’ve never used it before this fly either. Just happened to have some on hand. I went to a fly shop once to get some Diamond Braid, and this is what the guy sold me. i think it would be a lot of work to tie this fly with flash, but I’m sure it would be OK.
  8. Do I need to withdraw my challenge suggestion?
  9. Sad to hear. I always made it a point to stop at his shop whenever I was in the area.
  10. That is so sad and so shocking. I don’t know what to say.
  11. The next challenge fly is the “Carrot” (dry fly), from Ray Bergman’s Trout.
  12. Empie’s Deadly Shiner Hook: Mustad 9672 #10 Bead: Gold 5/32” Thread: 6:0 Orange Tail: Red Krystal Flash & Bill’s Bodi-Braid (Pearly Silver & Gold) Collar: Bill’s Bodi-Braid (Pearly Silver & Gold)
  13. I’ll take the Empie’s Deadly Shiner
  14. Getting ready for a three-hour tour, so I tied up this bunch. Ya never know!
