  1. I think I got mine today. Nice Ties. Mailed 5/14/2021. Pony Express was faster.
  2. If “round” is not imperative, Drew Chicone’s Fettuccini Foam makes a pretty good large leg on big flies. I’ve found it to be very durable and easy to work with.
  3. This little guy was just crawling out the water around 9AM. I suspect a small Golden Stone? About 1 inch long.
  4. One dozen Tan CDC Hi-Vis Caddis ready for the post. Tan CDC Hi-Vis Caddis Hook: Firehole Stick 718 #18 Thread: Veevus Fire Orange 12/0 Body: Tan Super Fine Dry Fly Dubbing Wing: Tan CDC with orange Foam indicator
  5. If your dad (or grand dad, uncle or distant cousin) is a fly tier, this might be the ultimate Father’s Day Gift https://www.ebay.com/itm/Whiting-Cree-Gold-Grade-Red-Lable-Saddle-/353511753047?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  6. Indeed, before the sun hit the water.
  7. I was lucky to catch a shot of this guy emerging on the Gardner River several years ago.
  8. One dozen #10 Tellico Nymphs in the post this morning. Thanks for hosting.
  9. Hey they are all good. There are two shops close to where you be living: River’s Edge West (a great Simms shop), Fins and Feathers (Orvis, probably the 2nd best fly tying materials shop) The Bozeman Family Fly Shop has the best selection of fly tying materials while Montana Troutfitters probably has the most experience in the Bozeman area. If I am going to book a local float trip, I’ll use Troutfitters, otherwise I am in and out of all of them over the course of the year.
  10. Count me it. Tellico Nymph (Golden Stone imitation) Tellico Nymph Hook: Firehole Stick #618, Size 10 Thread: UTC 140 Brown Weight: 5-8 turns .015 Lead Free Wire mid-shank Tail: Moose body hair Body: Flat Diamond Braid, Yellow Rib: Peacock Herl Shellback: Dark Turkey Tail Hackle: Brown Hen
