  1. I will need to steal this to try on smallies , maybe add a little orange into the cream dubbing.
  2. I wonder if it wasn't his variation of this https://www.skinnymoose.com/wanderings/2011/05/07/the-mysterious-slim-jim-northern-maine’s-elusive-dry-fly/
  3. Foam core board cut to the size you want works well . It's rigid and can be stood up against whatever far enough behind the vise so as not to get in your way.
  4. The buoyancy of the deer hair should help to keep the hook off the bottom on a sinking line or sink tip. I like to fish muddlers (loose head style) in crawfish colors in very rocky areas. They stay just off the bottom to keep snags to a minimum.
  5. Eze Lap Diamond hone and stone http://TinyURL.com/y53njg2l I use the fine for sharpening hooks ( at the bench and on the water) but for large hooks the med may be better when you have more metal to remove. You can buy them individually but for what most places charge for one (plus shipping) you may as well get the set. They do come in handy for other things too.
  6. Come now Mike we're all friends here. You can tell us the truth , we won't judge. They were that color until you dyed them magenta. Has anyone tried burning a hole in the ultrasuede with a large hot needle instead of having such a large hole from the punch?
  7. Were they kind of like the ones Chief Jay Strongbow used to wear ? chief_jay_strongbow_stat.png Of course they weren't mvendon, Mike's were magenta not white.
  8. Interesting vise but I don't want to see the price once it's available.
  9. The only decent time in Florida is the dead of winter.
  10. They don't give any instructions on using the pad with the kit. It always left me wondering should the pad be dry or wet when used. I used it dry (rough side) on a Cortland Lazer line once then used the stuff in the bottle and the line wouldn't should worth anything after that. Now I use the pad wet with a bucket of soapy water and that seems to be fine on my current lines. Actually a generic microfiber cloth works just as well maybe even better than the pad.
  11. Is that a recent thing? I ask because I bought a bunch of tying stuff at an estate sale years ago that included a box of 100 3366's in #6 from back when they came in the paper box, wrapped in glassine. I pretty much just use em for clousers, so I haven't used them up yet, but they're one hook in my menagerie that I have come to associate with being rather sharp out of the box. I've been buying 3366's for awhile now (8 to 10 years) and sizes 6 and up always needed sharpening . Size 8's maybe a quarter of them needed a touch up but this years batch all the 8's have needed sharpening. I didn't need to buy sizes 10 and down this year as I still have plenty from a few years ago so maybe even 10's would need sharpening now, I don't know.
