  1. What an awesome space. So where did that main bench come from? Seems like I've seen it somewhere before but I can't place it. Bob
  2. This sounds fun. I'm in for swiss straw. next person: chenille Bob
  3. I'm in with an Elk Hair Caddis. Bob
  4. I'm tying a green foam beetle. I'm sure it has a more formal name, but I can't find it anywhere. Bob
  5. I'll add my vote for the OptiVisor. But I must admit I hate wearing it for an extended period of time. That fake leather headband on my head with no hair is no fun, especially in the winter. It is interesting your comment about using a rotary vise as well. I've tried that and frankly while it may do something about the focus, I just can't tie on the dang things. I have tried them all (save the NorVise) and just can't seem to get comfortable, so I need to sell them and move on. Has anyone tried the small, rimless magnifier that mounts on the vise post like a light? Bob
  6. My favorite river will always be the St. Joe in northern Idaho. Problem is, I haven't been there in 15 years and may never make it back. For streams, I need to get out more and check out some of the ones here in Northern New Mexico. Always seem to end up on Holy Ghost. Bob
  7. Just curious if anyone has tried the hooks from Hook and Hackle? Bob
  8. Sign me up. This is my first swap in a long time, so I'm kind of rusty. I'll get back to you with a name. Can't remember it right now. Bob
  9. I use a C-clamp plus an extension to position it over the catch bag on my tying table. This also brings it closer so I don't have to lean over the table. Also keeps it low so I look through the lower part of my bifocals.
  10. Thanks for the kind words. I'd be in since I already have a decent start. If you run one, I'll be in. Bob
  11. To everyone here who never misses a swap, I'd like to apologize for disappearing back in the spring. We run a small business and got caught up in the real world. It's been 6 months of digging out. Haven't even been fishing this year, much less tying. But things have turned around and I'd like to make it up to folks. I was in the Damsel and Dragonfly swap and would like to send each person the fly I should have tied back then. Sorry again, this is a great site and a great bunch of folks on the site. Bob
  12. The main link in the first post no longer works. Perhaps this should no longer be pinned or did the link just change?
  13. I've been off the board for over a year with work but would love to get back into swaps. If you have a spot left, I'm in with Green Darner Furled fly from Ken Hanley's book on Furled Flies. Bob
  14. overbrook, Glad to know you liked the flies. I've been looking for a use for that style fly box for a long time. BTW, what is that fly desk you are sitting in front of? I'm jealous of all those drawers. Bob
