  1. I own the peak rotary vise now. I searched through a lot of cheaper vises and never truly found one I liked. Then as a birthday present a couple years ago my wife bought the peak for me. Hands down worth the little extra she paid for it. The for christmas she bought me the rest of the accessories for it, the d-arm, the waste basket, and the material clip. She even bought the midge jaws for it so I can work on smaller flies.
  2. So I decided to stray away from steelhead flies and start work on some flies for small trout streams out by the new house. I focused in on elk hair caddis, and a few san Juan worms. I didn't end up tying as much as I should have. The wife and son got sick a few days later. So we've all been quarantined together now.
  3. Mikechell, so far I had a fever Monday night with chills and sweats, tuesday fever went away. Today I feel fine. Health department says I still need to isolate. Stinks but will manage.
  4. Hello everybody. Been a long time since I checked in. Been a busy and strange year. Everything from car wrecks to buying a house and this virus floating around. I started feeling ill monday night and tested positive for COVID tuesday. Now I'm stuck in a room in our basement with a few creature comforts. I even mobilized my tying bench once again. Question is I'm looking for ideas on what I should be tying. I want to stick around great lakes winter steelhead flies. Once I'm out of this isolation phase I'm hitting the river. If I have the materials on hand I'll give whatevers thrown at me a go and post picture later on. I hope everyone has a merry christmas and happy new years as well. Good luck and stay healthy.

  5. Its $25 dollar for the year here in NY. We dont do trout stamps and other stuff like that.
  6. I wish I had your talent sir. Maybe someday after the house is finished and I get my workshop set up I will dabble into the world of knife making. Always been an interest of mine.
  7. Vicente....I'm really interested in see how this shapes up. For handle black with brass bands would look kinda cool to me.
  8. I'm in. I'll submit a half dozen bass streamers this year. I will find time with the new baby to get them tied and out in the mail asap.
  9. I own it. Full of different and interesting patterns. I only had it a couple weeks and have yet to try any pattern. Thus far it's been a good buy. Bit pricey but so far worth it.
  10. I keep the bumps in the night right where the judge sent them. I'm a corrections officer for New York state.
  11. Mike your too funny. The wife looked at me like I had 3 heads last night when I pulled that pelt out of my bag.
  12. So today I stopped up to my local taxidermist to pick up a deer I shot a couple years ago. On a whim I asked her if she had any scrap pieces of deer laying around. She walk over to a bag she was throwing scrap pieces into and pulls out a neck a little over three feet long. I offered to pay her for it and she wouldn't take anything for it. Says it's going to the trash anyways might as well go where it can be used. Needless to say I scored more deer hair then I will use in a couple years. For FREE. At the moment she is holding a nice chunk of black bear for me. She's wants $20 for that. My question to everyone here is, what else should I have her hold for me? Outside of squirrel and rabbits? Thanks in advace.
  13. Wife said mine came in a couple days ago. Thank you, they will be put to good use.
