  1. No argument from me Mike! For me, it's not about saving money, it's having what I need, when I need it. This took many years to collect too. The question that remains, Tidewater, is......How many more years will it take for it all to be used?
  2. Super glue when used as a head cement tends to cloud over time, which doesn't hurt the fishing ability of the fly, but doesn't exactly add to the beauty of the fly.It's main use on my desk comes when I am attaching lead wire to a hook shank,or when I am tying with a delicate material, such as peacock herl. Apply a thin layer to the area that you intend to wrap, and then wrap the material over the superglue, which will make the fly much stronger.
  3. Further work on filling my fly box. A March Brown. Old Hat's Tied Down Caddis I tried the Wright Royal, which was featured in a recent topic.
  4. Getting ready for the upcoming fishing season by filling my fly box. Shuttlecock A Red Tag An Irrisistable A Missionary And a Royal Coachman.
  5. America Angler had a recent article about this. It basically said an attractor pattern is used as a searching fly when there is no apparent hatch, as it appeals to a fish's curiosity. Kirk, another example of an impressionistic fly would be the X-Stimulator. With it's large wing it can represent a stone fly, or with its rubber legs it imitates a hopper.
  6. A Tinsel Wulff. It's tied like a Royal Wulff, but the red floss is substituted with tinsel And Whats an Ausable Wulff? .
  7. What criticism? It looks great!
  8. I know it will differ from place to place, but about when does the squirrel change its coat?
  9. It depends where you fish, but my top three are Woolly bugger, woolly bugger, and wolly bugger.
  10. Good looking desk. Rephrase: very good looking desk. What kind of wood did you use? It looks like oak or maple.
  11. I've never had prince nymphs work for me, or a muddler minnow for that matter.
  12. If you don't mind me asking, what's the mayfly tailing material? It looks like microfibbits to me, but I don't think that's the case.
  13. You beat me to it. Another I like is David Cammiss.I like Camiss' channel as well. If you're beginning fly tying, oysterboiler's channel is a good place to start.
  14. What's the name of the fly? I haven't seen that pattern.
  15. The Adams, and Adams parachute are good ones to start out with.
  16. But then there's a kind of satisfaction in using fur or feathers from a critter that you killed, rather than bought at a store or online.
  17. Now I don't want any Whiting hackle... But I'll get over it.
  18. Quick question. How did you cut the bodies so well?
  19. Ok So I've got the lighting problem solved, but I've also got two new problems. When I go to post pics of my flies, it will show the fly in the post composer thing, but when I hit post, it shows an error message. And my other problem is my pictures don't show enough detail. EDIT: Got it working.
  20. Silver creek, Someone had told me that CDC's natural oils, even when dyed, helps it float. I had wondered about that at the time, but not seeing anything to the contrary, that is what I always thought.
  21. Yup, that happens a lot. Generally than I tie a new pattern, one that gives me a bit of a more of a challenge, or something that introduces me to a new technique.
  22. NHmatt, I think because of the natural oils in the CDC, it helps the fly to float in the middle of the water column, instead of sinking to the bottom. It also has better movement under the water.
  23. You Might experience some longevity problems with the hackle tail, because hackle isn't exactly the toughest material in the world, But other than that, good lookin fly.
