  1. Has anyone tried day mousing around the Decker area this time of year? I've moused in MI at night but wondering if could even mouse in decker area or if I should throw hoppers instead?
  2. Well I found a simms dry creek chest pack and headwater full day pack combo for under $100 on ebay that I bought this afternoon. Then as I was placing an order on Cabelas for some essentials for the trip I decided to check out their packs and found their ridgeline 50L hiker on sale for $49.99 online only special!
  3. I will be traveling to CO in a few weeks, looking for a decent bag that I could use to do an over night hiking trip, or a day pack that I could use to haul waders, wading boots, flies, rods, camera, reels, some food, and maybe my hammock. Looking to stay under $100 if possible. My thought is to get a pack in the 30l-40l size so If I want I could use for a weekend hiking trip as well. Any thoughts would be great!
  4. I love fly fishing and will be moving in mid July to KS looking for any advice on water or fly shops close to central KS
  5. I'm sorry mike you have less then me and been a member longer so according to the Blane you wouldn't be a good candidate.
  6. I contacted Blane about receiving box 3... I guess I'm not a suitable candidate to receive a box because of my activity on this site isnt enough and becasue the box 1 I received was sent to another member who is now sitting in jail and somehow his ass losing the box is now my fault. I liked how this swap was going when it started but thats face it these boxes have LONG turn around now (I remember these boxes were being passed every 3 days max) and many of the members have forgot what this swap was all about. This swap was created for users to get new materials and share with others while passing along a hobby/sport we all love, not to be told you dont have enough post on the site you cant receive a box. Sorry this fourm had to turn out like this...
  7. I would like to volunteer after you receive box 3 Margaretann, If you need someone to send it on too.
  8. Hmmm, it appears that there used to be videos on the web but now they are gone. Taken down by the user. Interesting. Perhaps the originator decided not sure share the pattern after it went commercial? Regardless, looks like a fairly simple tie, and found this as the ingredients: http://www.midwesternflyfishing.com/flies/white-belly-mouse.html Been attempting a pattern similar to his mouse but could someone explain how to wrap the under body then the over body? Do you just wrap one on top of the other?
  9. I love that Idea, there are so many different clubs or new tyers that would use these "old" materials to further teach our hobby! One that note I would love to get in line as I know there is a list starting for many of these boxes.

  11. Yes, not true custom fit just custom stocking foot order and its $65 extra just looking for the shipping time. Here is the link from the simms site http://www.simmsfishing.com/site/custom_shop.html
  12. I tried on many waders and the ones I found I liked the best are the simms headwaters only issue is I need to get the custom booties and was wonder if anyone could tell me how long it normally takes from date of order to receiving the custom order? I have a float trip im taking the middle of june and wondering if I should expect them by then or not.
  13. Walked into my local fly shop today looking for a pair of breathable waders and now im faced with $150 DB barebones or $300 Simm headwaters. I tried both of them on and liked the fit of both of them, the issue im having is do I save $150 on the Db and hope they last or do I buy the simms? I've heard good and bad about both companies warranty. A little background is I fish 3-4 days/wk in the summer and just cant wear neoprene anymore in the summer heat. One large concern is fishing so much is they will wear quickly. Please any input would be great!
