  1. Maine, undisclosed location due to duck hunting pressure. Stunning morning to be on the water, terrible morning to be duck hunting. Michael
  2. Houston Brook Falls Pleasant Ridge Plantation Maine
  3. Dull and dreary day. Couple if snow flakes here and there. Finally sat down at the vise and started to get ready for spring. Started with a March Brown wet. then realized I am out of Guides Choice Hares Ear Also realized I was out Hungarian Partridge so I used some Wood Cock I harvested this year. I think it will work. Michael
  4. I'll ad my two cents, I personally tie on a Peak with either standard or saltwater jaws. This vise is more than I will ever need for the rest of my time tying. That being said I would also take a look at the Jurassic Series that Peak makes. One other thing about Peak is that the "C" clamp base is by far the strongest I have ever tied with. The other manufacturer I would seriously look into is HMH. Their "Standard" model with magnum jaws would be the cats a$$. I have tied on a couple of these at shows and was extremely impressed with he fit and finish. They are super smooth and have the feeling as if they are indestructible. Michael
  5. Mikechell, When you are set up, give me a shout. There were a couple of interesting points that I learned while turning this. Michael
  6. Made a earring carousel as a gift for Christmas gift. It came out pretty good. Had some Birds Eye Maple and Walnut. Michael
  7. Jamieofthenorth, These are going to slay them on the Machias this year. Great tie. Dividing wing is not an easy task to master. Doing a great job so far. Michael
  8. Mikechell, They had it made for me. It sounds fantastic. Has a really soft, quite side and I have not been able to blow too hard on it. I'm really impressed. I asked them to introduce me to this person. Maybe I too can turn a call or two. Michael
  9. I know this isn't fly tying stuff... YET. Oldest daughter and husband had a custom duck call made out of Myrtle wood and African Blackwood. Next fall it will make some fly tying stuff!
  10. If 2020 were a word math problem: If you are in a canoe going down a river a 2.56mph and a wheel falls off, how many liters of pancake mix would it take to shingle your roof? Michael
  11. May this season bring you the love and joy of holding a puppy!
  12. DFoster, This is by far my favorite nymph patter. I have caught Brook Trout, Salmon, Yellow and White Perch, Crappy, Lake White Fish, Fall Fish, Large and Small Mouth Bass. It has worked extremely well for me. Good luck fishing it. Michael
  13. You are spot on. One of my friends has a nickname for me... "My own retriever bitch". Michael
  14. I'll play along. This was he second trout I landed with my new net. Michael
  15. Not a bad morning on the river. Had a reminded of what it takes to run down a goose that has a broken wing. Way out of shape and had too many layers on, but we got it done. Michael
  16. Good afternoon Upstate, Flytire has an excellent data base on his site. Just something I would ad is the Miss Sharon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3YY2VUvesU and the Barnes Special https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3HfQuunQaE Either on a single extra long shank hook like Flytire said, or trolling a tandem behind a dodger. Michael
  17. Went duck hunting. Still need to get rid of the leaves. Looks like I may do it next April.
  18. This morning it was 19 degrees here. I don't think I would be able to wait until Nov 15th for construction to start. Just saying... Michael
  19. Mogup, Though you might like to read the history and trying instructions of the "Nancy's Prayer" http://invictaflies.tripod.com/id220.htm Michael
  20. If I can get a sunny day, I'll get the leaves gone. If not, I'll duck hunt. Michael
  21. Another thing that I have some relief with is a high potency CBD ointment. Rub some on the tendons at the wrist and across the thumb muscles. I too have braces that I ware when I sleep. Or if you can get you hands on some Flexeril. At least you won't care what pain you have while you sleep it off. Michael
  22. Cool that I can think in the art world turns, even if I didn't know the terms. Just thought it would be interesting to go in a different direction from the masses. Michael
