  1. Good stuff K. :thumbsup: Nice to see another Peak Vise user. I've had mine for 3 years and haven't had a problem with it. The only thing I might suggest is taking that bright white base off and giving it a light coat of gray spray paint. I did that to mine after about 2 weeks of tying with it and realizing the glare was giving me a headache. :wallbash: Maybe it doesn't bother you like it did me but keep it in mind. Keep it up!! Scotty
  2. Bugger, Clouser, Hares ear. I understand what you mean about beginners and dubbing, but on a hares ear using pre-packaged dubbing it's not that bad and dubbing is a very useful skill. Don't fear the dubbing! :flex: Scotty
  3. Nice shots...Good looking Manchild ya got there! Takes after Mom?? :hyst: :j_k: Scotty
  4. Got mine Tuesday! My buddy Ian up at Flymasters called me and told me they were in and that he had one set aside for me. Pretty sure they just needed my $$$ since I can't walk into the shop and not spend at least $30. Great job everyone! Will, Al and Gretchen, all the contributors..you guys do such a great job! :headbang: Scotty
  5. Do not be afraid of dubbing. Pinch dubbing, ropes, noodles, dubbing loops, these can all seem frustrating and impossible to get right. With practice comes familiarity and with that eventually comes mastery and innovation. After learning to like dubbing and enjoy all the different things I can do with it I very, very rarely use chenile in anything anymore. Scotty.

  7. Griffin ceramics in a couple different sizes ($12-13 at your local shop) that have really held up well and do what I ask of them. I also have a Rite ceramic bobbin($20) that I use for deer hair and woolhead work when I'm using GSP or 210 denier and really want to put the shoes to it! Scotty.
  8. Is he back overseas again? :bugeyes: Happy B-day dude. Stay safe and come back soon. Scotty.
  9. GOOG!! Also known as Goggle eye and Warmouth. S.
  10. Pretty sure my local Flyshop still has a ton of that ultra-braid in their bargin bin. I'll take a look if you want me to. Any particular color (s) ? Crystal antron chenille by Cascade would probably work too. I've got a few packs of that lying around that I was gonna do something with. :dunno: Scotty
  11. So, by this line of reasoning; the Nor-Vise is great because a few people have one and a Renzetti is not because a lot of tyers use them. There a a lot of former N-V users (I am one of them) and none that I ever ran into is sorry they left the Nor-Vise behind. It suits SOME tyers tying style but not many. Hey Trout-B....Reread his statement. I believe you may have misunderstood him. Put good in quotation marks or substitute the word "poorly designed" or "unpopular" Scotty.
  12. THAT'S IT?????? :dunno: I opened this thread just to read what Brent would have to say in his eloquent way. :ripped: S.
