  1. I use a ton of pheasant feathers. I think that as long as they have been preserved correctly and aren't buggy they should be ok. I have bought off ebay before and they have been fine. I don't really buy tail feathers from fly shops or internet shops because they are expensive compared to getting them from guys here, a taxidermists or ebay. IMHO
  2. No, a clay cutter, on crack!!!!
  3. Well I have been thinking about doing this for a long time. I saw day5's tool, and I figured I would finish what I was thinking. Here it is It may be illegal is some states :dunno:
  4. The new dsl that are out now are almost making me want to give up my Cannon AE1. But I am not quite there yet. Randy
  5. I have never had a problem with the guy. I orderd the christmas box and it took a while to get it. I don't know what people expect, the stuff is cheep and works well. He does all the work himself. You just need to know how to talk to people. If you send a rude email demanding the stuff the first time, ofcoarse no one will want to deal with you. If you are polite and still get across your concerns with your order, you are more than likely going to get a response. I do admit though that he needs to work on his customer service. I thought it would be a good idea to state on the website how long it takes to expect an order. He might get fewer email from anxous custmers want to know where their items are. Or maybe even a email response when the items ship. Randy
  6. I got it Monday. I will be sending it out Wednesday before work. Great bunch of flies. Randy
  7. No I got a few more years before my kid is taller than me . I didn't make it today. I was there for a couple of hours in the morning and then again in the afternoon with my son. I stopped by the Hatches booth to introduce myself to Will and to buy a copy of the mag. I did get a chance to watch Bud tie for a while. The guy has a great deal of talent. Some day I will actually meet you guys. Randy
  8. next year I hope to have my business set up and to be there with a butt load of materails. I was impressed with the stuff that Feather and Furs had. He always seems to have some good stuff and a good price. Randy
  9. I will be there most of the day Saturday. I will be wearing my "just fish" hat. I will stop by and say hello.

    Mason recap

    Dude I think I stood right next to watching a tie. I had my 7 year old son with me. I know I saw the shirt. But I never saw the hat. Sometimes I can be rather blind. Either that or I was distracted by my son. He was more interested in the vendors that the tieing. He had a $20 dollar bill that was burning a hole in his pocket.
