  1. This is all you need to know! I've tied a ton of buggers on a Whiting bugger pack.
  2. I wouldn't want anyone to copy my flies...I would prefer they tie them the right way!
  3. I have used this knot recently. http://www.garyborger.com/equipment/nailless-nail-knot/
  4. I rarely tie a fly that I would like to post a picture of on here. These guys are just too good. But I catch a LOT of fish on my far less than perfect flies. Fishing is mostly about presentation and if you can give the fish something that looks tasty to them they will eat it if you can get it in front of them....usually.
  5. Looks like a great time! Nice fish! The legs not so much...lol!
  6. Looks like a typical flinner jig to me. What's the big deal?

    He has communicated with me through [email protected] I have used a couple of the former sponsors. J. Stockard is a great company to use as well as Allen Fly Fishing. Both companies are stand-up and trustworthy.
  8. That's bigger than the last fly shop I was in! Unbelievable!
  9. Those are some beautiful bugs! How could a fish resist them?
  10. I would consider giving the line a shot. When I fish at night I feel disadvantaged in that I miss those strikes where my only indication may be the line drift being altered and I can't see it in the dark.
  11. I've never used a wading staff but I am going to get one before my next trip. I am far less flexible than I used to be and my balance is worse and my reflexes are slower. The technique Jaydub describes is a good one. The most difficult wading to me is in water with rocks 6-10 inches covered in moss on the bottom. My feet tend to get wedged in and balance can get compromised easily especially if the current is moderate to strong. Going slow is the only good way to navigate this kind of underwater terrain. Make sure your front foot is firmly planted and secure before moving the back one. There is no rush to reach the other side or the next hole.
  12. I like the texture and veins of the wings shown in detail in the top picture. Another great pair of pictures.
  13. Will, let me know if you email Rick again. As of this morning he had heard nothing from you and if there is some problem with emails I want him to know you are trying to contact him. He said he also didn't get all the hooks he ordered but hopefully you guys will be able to communicate and get it all worked out.
