  1. My favorite jig nymph for the next couple of months. Pulls multi duty as small stonefly or green drake nymph. Who knows what trout think it is but it's been my top producing general searching guide fly for the past month.JigGreenDrake%2310.jpg?format=1000w

    These are amazing. I can see how they would be a great searching pattern. I also looked at you site. Great ideas. Any chance you would be willing to cough up the receipt for this fly?





  2. Eide,

    As always, I'm still envious of your tying ability. even if I had another 40 years of learning, I suspect I might be able to tie closer to your talents.

    I do have a question though... I noticed your bodies are either varnished or uv resin. Have you found that this increases the weight of the fly too much? Do you find that the fly still rides high on the water?



  3. Just as a reminder to everyone... the Miranda Rights state “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”


    "Can and WILL be used AGAINST you in the court of law" These are not read to you to help you in any way no mater how it is explained to you.


    This is just my two sense... or cents, which ever way you want to read this.



  4. I have two of these pond/lakes within a mile of my house that have some of these monsters in them. I'm usually good for 6 to 10 of the 30" plus fish every spring. Most of them I have caught on a heavily dressed Mickey Finn. The only other thing I have had any luck with is a Chartreuse/White Deceiver. The only issue I have had in the past is they tend to hit the fly in the back half and from the side. Quite often they will miss the hook.


    Best of luck in April.



  5. Kudu,


    Thank you for the kind words. I do appreciate it. I truly enjoy playing with wood. I belong to a group of woodworkers that have helped me tremendously with my projects. I'm finding my ideas and my talents don't always line up. It is a great help to have others more talented that I to bounce ideas off of.



    What Kudu is speaking of is the fact that I have a small business that I build kayaks and canoes. I you search canoes you will find a thread that I started entitled


    What else I do?

    in The Lodge

    This was a fun thread to watch.



  6. Finally getting back to this post.

    Again, huge thanks to everyone for their help with ideas. Looks like we have a descent plan in place with lots of room for change. I've now been informed that there might not be anyone new but a hand full of intermediate tiers. Not really sure how this is going to work out, but it should be interesting either way.



  7. Just my two pennies... I have the Peak with all three jaws. I have used the salt water jaws to tie 6/0 SS hooks. There was no slippage that I could find. I have enjoyed owning this vise. For me, I'm not sure what the advantage of the new LIRS system would be. Please keep in mind this is just my opinion. However it looks really cool.



  8. This is a huge amount of help. I had not thought of focusing on the technique. I can see how that will work, i.e. working on a technique, cutting it off, repeat, then end up with a completed fly at the end of class. Then build off of that first fly to progress onto the next technique.


    As for type of fishing here; trout (brookies and browns), salmon and touge in the spring, bass and pan fish in the summer, a combination of everything in the fall. Although last year I caught a fess of Fall Fish in the spring, that was unique.


    Thanks to everyone who was willing to give their input. I do appreciate it.
