  1. Your doing great Mark, keep it up! This year has been a huge challenge for me as well, as I had major prostrate surgery. But I’m doing well and fishing and trying to tie some flies! Hang in there do what the doc says and keep us updated! Mike.
  2. Same to all of you, enjoy the day. Mike.
  3. Byron that’s not bad but I shave with double edge blades and can get a 100 pack of astras from Maggard razors in Michigan for 11.99. And there are less expensive blades on there website. Mike.
  4. Old hat, those are awesome! Is there a recipe on your website? thanks for sharing, Mike.
  5. Very nice denduke, those would be productive here in Michigan for sure. I have bought some materials for these type of flies but have yet to get serious about tying them. Perhaps with the crappy weather I may need to dig the stuff out and give them a go. A local fly shop Nomad anglers has some good videos on steelhead and salmon flies. I’ve got a 7 wt. switch rod I’ve never used, got fix that. Mike.
  6. I just made a sizable order from my local fly shop, I had to replace to two lines, so I did some looking around on hooks. I did go with the majority of Daiichi dry fly and wet fly hooks, they were reasonable. I did purchase some Daiichi Alec Jackson wet fly hooks and some tiemco 102y for flymph and wet fly applications. One hook I could not find anywhere was the Daiichi 2461 #4 streamer hook, some of these supplies issues are really weird. Mike.
  7. Thank you so much, I’m going to our local Joanne’s tomorrow, the time and detail you put in your sbs are greatly appreciated. Mike.
  8. Chug, those are sweet, I like the Hughes variant best. I may have to make a run to Joann fabrics this weekend, is the yarn wool or synthetic? Thanks for sharing. Mike.
  9. Norm, I don’t know if I could come with the words to describe how beautiful I find the Jay fly. Simply awesome, thank you for sharing! Mike.
  10. Scott your work is just other worldly, thanks for sharing. Mike.
  11. Looking forward to sharing in your adventures, you have certainly lived in some beautiful and interesting places. Love the nymph you posted here, keep them coming. Mike.
  12. Nice squeezy, and as long as your learning you will continue to improve. It’s gonna be a long winter here in Michigan, and fly tying certainly helps to keep up attitudes and gives one something to look forward to. Take care and keep it up, Mike.
  13. Thank you mods for all you do, I guess it’s to much ask to just stick to what this was intended , but you gentlemen to your best to keep it focused. I much prefer to talk about and read about everyone’s outstanding tying here. Thank you, Mike.
  14. Wow, beautiful fish denduke and cool video. We used to have a good salmon fishery here in Michigan, still some on the west side but not much on the east side. Thanks for sharing. Mike.
  15. Very nice Philly, I think I have to find a deers mask.
