  1. So the Richards Blvd wasn’t familiar? I’m sure I could handle a super taco. A Mexican grocery store in my town sell fifty cent street tacos of taco Tuesday. The are awesome. I’ve often seen people order a hundred.
  2. According to the post office my flies should be behind a bush at 7218 Franklin Blvd Sacramento, CA or 851 Richards Blvd. hope you find them. They are sorry for the inconvenience.
  3. Apparently I suffered a seizure or hallucination and signed up somehow? I guess, as Aesop predicted, all of the early tiers will do ants and fittingly, I will do a grasshopper. July 10th is the due date Bob? 12th? Hey folks don't forget my birthday on 7/11
  4. Bob they will be in the mail Monday. Thanks for hosting. This is a great early season caddis.
  5. FishingBobNelson I googled how to make Trout Crack. It seems interesting. Could be something worth doing.
  6. Bob the postal people delivered it a day early. You owe them a chalupa or dos.
  7. I grew up in that area. I was trying to think whose flies they could be. I was at the Darbee house growing up often. I’m from that area. If he had authentication it could be worth it. I wonder if Jim Krul or Mike Valla saw his collection?
  8. I carry a Glock 27, the 40 caliber version of the 26. I have told friends to choose either a S&W model 36 or a Glock 43 for first gun. Both are reliable, effective and inexpensive to shoot (accept now when all ammo is scarce). I prefer a Relentless Tactical leather IWO holster. When fishing, in back country, I carry a Charter Arms Bulldog 44 spl, with 265gr LSWC bullets or a S&W model 60 three inch 357 with hard cast 165 gr LSWC. My 5.11 pack has a hidden holster. Practice often. Most people in a stressful situation will shoot maybe half as well as in practice. Practice reloading. Where you carry should be consistent. If you decided you are going to carry, always carry. Don’t tell people you carry. Resist the urge to check your clothing or adjust your holster in public. Look before you go out to see if your gun prints on your clothing. If you look, it is easy to tell who has a gun. Bad people do. Good luck and stay safe.
  9. Got mine. Cool flies. Great selection. Thanks Kim for a great swap
  10. Thank you Kim for running a great swap!
  11. Thank you. Yes, I have never seen anyone else tie these. Niveker, I find most people make the tail and body too long and that makes the fly fragile. Go farther up the feather and make the tail and abdomen shorter. When I tie the traditional, I also include divides wings. I often cheat and cut the pulled forward wood duck and even it.
  12. Wood duck and deer body hair. This is a variation of the Darbee two feather fly. I used deer hair instead of hackle. The wood duck flank forms an extended body. Simple and quick tie, but a great dry fly for picky trout. Daiichi 1167 size 14 They will be in the mail today.
  13. So, this is just feathers and thread, this good? LOL
  14. I will. Jim Mackey a long time friend of her family will.
  15. Mine are really in the mail. I blessed them and wished them luck. I told them to stay away from Flytire’s “postal” flies and keep their feathers to themselves.
