  1. A photo? You are lucky....I get a phone call where someone describes it to me. "It's kinda small and it's brown.....you got those?" J
  2. It is professional....he must be on pro staff somewhere. J
  3. What's the dubbing on the head of that one Dan? Great color combo! J
  4. Could be like the few in Wyoming, mostly dressed in Carharts and Snowmobile boots, with brown and gold polar fleece accents Sounds like the ones here in Edmonton. Throw in some cleavage tattoos and it's bang on. J
  5. I don't know what Nova Scotian fly tying groupies would be like. Not sure I want to find out. J
  6. So that you can compete in the tying olympics? Where are they being held this next year? J
  7. Yep. There should be a function to have the poll stay in the chronological cue regardless of when someone votes. That's not going to stop anyone from replying to 5 year old posts and bumping them to the top though. And chances are that all the mods can do is "lock" these. Someone with admin powers would have to do the part I mentioned above. J
  8. As someone who used to mod a forum where confrontation and smack talk was what it was all about I am sure you guys will have no problems with this group of fine, upstanding tyers and fishers. Have fun. J
  9. What hook are you doing your BRBs on Cream? J
  10. Agree with flytire....with one exception.....keep your chronies skinny! J
  11. That's her Mike. She had rhinestones on her jeans and blinded me with all the dazzling! J
  12. I got no reason to lie. It's a funny story. The other fellow that would come and help out at the tying booth had been told this before and when he finally saw it happen his mind was blown. Was a great boost to my ego. J
  13. I wish I was one of those. I bet they get all the fly tying groupies. J You've seen fly tying groupies??? I actually did have one. She used to come to see me at the 4 tying events I would do at cabelas each year. Would always put her business card into my shirt pocket at the end of the lesson. Haven't seen her at the last couple though. A bit forward for a gal who wore a large diamond on her ring finger. I always keep an eye out for her during these events. Her absence makes me wonder if the fellow who put the ring on her finger got wise to what she was doing and tightened the leash. J
  14. I wish I was one of those. I bet they get all the fly tying groupies. J
  15. Duck on the forward cast.....that fly is going to be heavy! J
  16. I know some professional tyers that tie standing up. Get yourself some of the ergo friendly gel mats and create a work area that is a comfortable height for you. There are some office desk top devices that are designed for a standing person and they work great for tyers. J
  17. Just a regular Thursday up here in Canada. Enjoy your Thanksgiving my fly tying brothers to the south! J
  18. Definitely scrape off any fat that you can. That's where the smell is coming from. I am not sure a borax treatment would help at this point but I suppose it couldn't hurt. J
  19. I fish Western Canadian trout lakes more than anything else so this is what I tie on most often (in no particular order): Balanced Leech (black or maroon) Chronie (black and gold with black BH) Epoxy Minnow (floating) Hollow Bloodworm Micro Seal Leech (olive or black) Booby (black or chartreuse) Epoxy Back Scud (tan) Wiggle Damsel Big Eye Damsel Balanced Dragon Poly Midge Emerger (black and white) Foam Boatman J
  20. I really like the pattern McFly. I might be concerned about durability though. Maybe some copper wire tied in after the mono eyes and then when the dubbing is complete and crystal flash pulled back and in place the wire is wrapped forward to make it sturdy and create good segmentation? Wouldn't hardly add any time but will definitely make it last. If the thread ribbing gets bitten through then a lot of it will come apart. Just my thoughts. Cheers J
  21. Thanks flytyer62...makes sense to me now. I wasn't thinking of it as a pattern tied in reverse. Cheers J
  22. I kept waiting for Yukon Cornelius and the Bumble to show up. J
  23. That video makes me all gooey inside. Just awesome. J
  24. Flytyer62 What is the first fly in your sequence? Thanks J
