  1. Not really sure what you mean. I made a comment on your posted flies that went unanswered. Nearly all the flies posted here include a recipe, and I think nearly all who post flies here, regularly or sporadically, are more than willing to answer questions about any technique used, if asked. Nearly never is a negative comment made on a tyers posts to make them feel unwelcome. Is it the lack of commenting that you're referring to?
  2. Busy time of the year, me thinks.
  3. Thanks, yes, they are a bit unruly, thought it does have very nice shades of color and beautiful markings.
  4. Thanks Moshup. You are correct, it's a ringneck breast feather, the smaller ones are higher up, closer to the neck.
  5. Nice looking vise. I came across a few references to it on the internet, seems like it was made by Thompson for Orvis, that's about all I could find.
  6. Red Clock #12 Hook: #12, difficult to fit a smaller hook to the prescribed hackle Thread: Orange silk Thorax: Peacock Hackle: Cock pheasant breast feather Head: Peacock herl.
  7. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
  8. Flies hit the PO today. ETA 9/18, will PM tracking #. .
  9. Agree with @utyer, the height of your tying surface is only going to be limited by the height an adjustable stool/chair, which will let you fine tune everything to your comfort.
  10. Cool looking flies, must have a ton of movement in the water.
  11. That looks great. Have you tried creating a taper by building up thread around the brass casing? Or does that round out the square too much?
  12. 'Cringler' Beautiful fly. Your materials, like @flytire's, amaze me. A lot of people have crazy long bucket lists related to flyfishing. Mine's pretty short: two weeks on the limestone streams of PA and a day tying in SBPatt's tying room.
  13. October Caddis Soft Hackled Emergers influenced by the many versions on Steven Birds' excellent blog Soft-Hackle Journal. Hook: #10 Thread: 1. tan 2. brown Rib: copper wire Body: Australian possum, burnt orange Thorax: pine squirrel, taken from the reddish back section Wing: 1. squirrel tail dyed orange 2. male wood duck breast feather, folded Hackle: 1. bobwhite, taken from the rump just above the tail - looked much better on the skin than it does on the fly 2. hen pheasant from shoulder
