  1. geo - put me down for a caddis emerger. Hooks are on order from stockard and should be here this week. Looking forward to tying and seeing what comes back! Thanks for hosting.
  2. Geo: I'm in First swap on this forum.
  3. Great report and sorry to hear the downside of the story. Albies on the fly in NJ, AWESOME!
  4. Very nice pattern and very nice post! Thanks for sharing that.
  5. I use the same system...I should own stock in ziplock with all the stink'n bags I have. When traveling by car (non-flying) I typically load up some materials and put them in a see through plastic tub. I will even make bags for specific flies. If I am low on BWO or don't have a size I think I might need, I'll pack a bag with all the materials need for that fly, plus the hook sizes I will (or guess) being tying. If that makes any sense!!
  6. Thanks for all the responses guys, some good sites here. This "hobby" really is a "sickness"!!
  7. I did and I do like that site. I've ordered from there already. Just looking for varying sites to check prices and quality.
  8. I am looking for a good internet site, that has a wide variety of tying materials and good quality. Nothing like getting stuff shipped to your door. I live close to TCO (tcoflyfishing.com), but I wanted some other options. Any help would be appreciated. Some of the sites I've looked at, do not have good descriptions, so I am always leery if I am actually ordering what I want.
  9. Now this is more my speed...A messy desk, is a healthy desk, IMO!
  10. I can't get the egg yarn patterns to turn out nice either. They are usually very loose and roll on the hook shank. I've tried the yarn and the mcfly foam. I tied crappie ones that look horrible, but they have caught plenty of fish for me. I don't waste alot of time making them look pretty, since they seem to work for me.
  11. The box is from Cabelas and it is there brand. Its a double nubby, which I really like. And you can't beat the price either. Cabelas Box All the patterns on the left side of the box are just estaz eggs.
  12. I've been lurking around a few days now and just finally getting around to posting an introduction. I consider myself a pretty good tier and well versed, until finding this forum. I now know, I'm addicting, but some of you guys are absolutely crazy!! :j_k: I mostly tie salmon patterns for a group of us that head out a few times each year to Pulaski, Erie and Western NY. Also, I have recently been getting into chasing mostly blues and stripers in the surf on the fly. My true passion is catching smallies, both on the fly and with conventional gear. That is my true addiction and obsession. I look forward to learning and sharing on this board. I've already learned a few new patterns and tips just from reading. I am hoping to get involved with a swap eventually, maybe during the winter. In between chasing trout in the colder months, I do alot of tying and rod building.
  13. Thanks for the info. Figured it was a dry pattern, with deer hair and hackle, its gotta float. Interesting, thanks again.
  14. I would like to know what this fly is suppose to represent and how its fished for salmon. Always looking for different things to tie and fish. Thanks
