  2. Thanks Kim. I’m going with Warden’s Worry.
  3. Agreed. I’ve had no trouble with JStockard, and was going to place my order with them, except that I needed a couple of items that they didn’t stock.
  4. I’m in! Pattern to be chosen later.
  5. Has anybody experienced difficulties in getting online fly tying materials orders filled? I made orders to two different suppliers over two weeks ago. The order status on both of these show up as “processing”. One of the suppliers called a couple of days after I placed the order and told me that of the six items in my order, only one of them was not on back order. Kind of pathetic, I think. Their website software should have told me that when I placed the order.
  6. Anybody have a model number for a 2X short dry fly hook? Equivalent to a Mustad 94838.
  7. The only scraps I save are wood duck. I use the leftover fibers for tails and wing cases on nymphs. There’s a dry fly I tie called The Spirit of Pittsford Mills. It uses the downy fluff from a wood duck feather, so I keep the scraps for that fly as well. I just put the scraps in a small ziplock bag.
  8. Well here’s my amateurish first attempt at this.
  9. One thing I forgot to mention is that Vince used a Golden Pheasant breast feather (red) for the tail. I have some on order. When I get it, I will give it a shot.
  10. Well I finally was able to dig out the interview. Sounds like he added a topping (presumably golden pheasant crest), and cheeks of blue chatterer with jungle cock. Also, he changed the body to yellow seal’s fur with silver ribbing.
  11. I’ll have to look for the interview, but if i remember correctly, it was more than just a hook change.
