  1. I tried looking it up on Google and it's very vague. That's why I'm asking you guys. I did many searches before my post so I wouldn't end up with a negative response. I guess that's forum territory.
  2. I'm heading to Michigan soon and I want to tie some nymphs to run under the indicator and the pin for some lake run rainbows. I have some caddis green chenille and some scud hooks. Looking for a simple pattern. Any help is appreciated.
  3. I thought that was the case. I just wanted to make sure that any hen cape is for a wet fly basically. I'm also surprised that Cabelas only has one option for a Hen.
  4. I have a couple of saddle hackle full saddles. I believe that those are for dry flies. What I'm looking for a hackles for wet/nymph flies. I see cabelas only has and India hen and from what I understand hen hackles are for wet flies and the saddles are from roosters for dries? What do I need to look for to get the hackles for wet flies?
  5. My wife picked me up some 13/0 seed beads at Hobby Lobby. They're about the size I had already. Now I know that probably a 16/0 would be about the smallest to tie with.
  6. They were definitely not metal. I think I'll see about ordering some of the 20/0.
  7. Ahhhh, now I don't need to buy more thread!
  8. Also looking for some blue or purple 70UTC thread. I don't think those colors are available so what would be the equivalent?
  9. It seems like the smallest beads I can find are 1.5mm. I bought a few rojo midge in size 22 or 24 from Cabelas and they have 2 very small beads on the head that are about half the size of the 1.5mms that I have. Does anyone know what these are called or where I can get some? This pattern is just killer on a spring creek I fish. Thanks
  10. I don't tie a whole lot but I love this vice. When I first got it a couple of years ago there was a burr on the jaws. I just took a small stone and removed it. I just ordered a bobbin holder for it. I don't how much better a vice can be than this to spend major $$$$$$$?
  11. I just posted the same thing in the fly tying bench and there was a nice response that may help.
  12. I didn't know where to post this or how to email a moderator/administrator. When I want to browse patterns by material, like say floss, it just goes to a blank page. It does this with any material I click. Anyone know why or what I'm doing wrong?

    White puff?

    Alright, I just got off of the phone with them. It's white ostrich herl, black thread, and black feathers for a tail. She said to just use any black feather fibers (even chicken) and wrap the herl and then tie a black head. It's a dry fly.
  14. I may have to buy some peacock swords. That may be the easiest thing for a beginner like me. I just bought a saddle neck from cabelas for $40 but it looks like I'll have to trim those down too.
