  1. It's been a while since I've been active with my tying and a long while since I've been on the site. The site's been growing but still some familiar names out there. Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do. -Pat

    I'm a Dead Man

    Maybe you should by her a nice travel light or something to make up for it! -Bamboo
  3. 2 sets of flies in the same day! Thanks Don for a great swap and everyone for the great ties. -Bamboo
  4. Flies arrived today. Great ties everyone and thanks Nomad for running the swap. Michael- I use the Chernobyl Ant allover - Millers, Deerfield, Westfield. Really anytime a terrestrial will work, so will this. Don't know why foam flies are so slow to catch on in the east but they don't get used nearly as much as they could. -Bamboo
  5. Wow! :headbang: A swap that ended early. I guess there's a first time for everything. :clapping: Thanks nomad. -Bamboo
  6. Nomad- Thanks for hosting. Flies were put in the mail this morning so you should get them in time. -Bamboo
  7. I went for this deal a couple years ago. It was a mother lode of materials for $25. :headbang: Shipping was quick on the Christmas assortment. Subsequent orders have been a little slower but always quality materials at great prices! -Bamboo
  8. Nomad- Addy please. Should finish up in the next couple of days. -Bamboo
  9. I carry my vise, light and extension cord along with the 8 pouches full of material. Definitely some swimming room in this bag! -Bamboo
  10. Don- Please PM your addy when you get a chance and I'll get my flies in. Thanks, Bamboo
  11. Let go of my Bud-Light! :hyst: -Bamboo
  12. Like Al, I had thought Ligas had gone out of business but last weekend, I was in Up Country Flyfishing in New Hartford, CT (UpCountry) and they had a wall full of the dubbing. No idea about the color your after but could be worth a call. -Bamboo
  13. If there's still room, I'm in. I'll do a Chernobyl ant. -Bamboo
  14. If I can't get something locally, I still try an order as close to me as possible just so I'm not waiting a week to get my stuff. I've had very good experiences with: www.linesend.com www.stoneriveroutfitters.com J. Stockard Can't say that I've ever had a bad experience on-line but I do try and stick to the more established outfits. -Bamboo
  15. Hard to go wrong for $100. And like maddog said, FeatherCraft is a reputable place - I expect the vise is in fine shape. -Bamboo
  16. I'd say just tie on what you have. I use both - whatever I have and is convenient. Only real difference that I notice is that toe tags stay on barbed hooks better. -Bamboo
  17. Well, finally have been able to reclaim my tying room (or at least a significant piece) and get it presentable enough to post a pic. Still doing some reorg but it's coming together. -Bamboo
  18. I'll do the Claret & Olive Hermit. -Bamboo
  19. Sounds a bit like Alex's Secret Santa swap. Is that the general idea? -Bamboo
  20. If there's room, I'm in. -Bamboo
  21. Bill- Made2Fly makes a trash bag on a frame that is mounted under your desk (see #9600 in attached link). It slides out like a drawer when needed and you don't need a hole in your desk. One of the best additions to my desk! Made2Fly trash bag -Bamboo
  22. With very few exceptions (flying ant wing - baggie and his spinner wing - organza), A.K. uses natural materials. Seems to be more of a deliberate aversion to synthetics than just preference. Ask him why? -Bamboo
  23. I got to see and play a little with the new Regal rotary last week. It is very well made and if fast spinning is what you're looking for, I think you'll find this is better than anything else on the market. Spinning is fast, extremely smooth and effortless - ball bearings front and back. It's balanced such that when the spinning stops, the vise stops in the standard upright position every time. The counter balance you mention is only on the side opposite the vise handle (not both sides). Comes with typical Regal hook holding abilities with standard and sw size jaws. No midge jaws. Looking forward to actually tying some flies on one but haven't been able to just yet. I believe it's supposed to be available around the first of November - retailing around $400. -Bamboo
  24. Best of luck Al. Hope all goes well and you're back at the vise in a hurry! -Bamboo
