  1. Funny you mentioned that, Doc. Back in the early 90's I spent a few years living in Santa Fe and one of the smells I reminisce about is the aroma from roasting chile stands set up on the sides of the road in the fall. Your pozole post reminded me of that, and my girlfriend at the time who's Mom made the best pozole rojo I tasted. Of course, being an eastern Yankee boy, that ain't saying much. I'd love to smell those roasting chiles again, but fresh bread still smells like home to me.
  2. I've got about 7 bucktails sitting in my freezer waiting to be dyed, so looking forward to some answers to you question.
  3. Mmmm - nothing says 'home sweet home' like the smell of baking bread.
  4. Great SBS Chug. I'll have to read it a few more times to digest all that info. Very well done. Love the little roaming signature, I'm still trying to find where you hid it in step 5.
  5. 👍 nicely done. A 'Royal' anything is hard to beat sometimes. I keep a few of the various versions in my box.
  6. Very nice. As I'm not real familiar tying this style, the purpose of the series of dubbed pillows is what?
  7. Thanks CP. That one's about 5". I think I'll tie up a few more, but a bit shorter and with cheap Chinese saddle hackle. Let me know how you do with yours.
  8. I have not, though I see that style often enough, I should give it a shot.
  9. Well done, and a fine photo to boot.
  10. Yes, I know the place well, I used to pick up bar shifts there during the Christmas and wedding seasons. The oldest authentic, operating roasting jack in the US, so they say, from the 1700's. Quite a bit of history there. They'd make the chowder in big cast iron pots for the special feasts. LOL
  11. Nice flies everybody. Nice legs @poopdeck, have never seen that before. I like using glass beads, they seem to work well as a thorax. The only drawback is they will occasionally break, especially on bigger nymphs fished in fast water. The latter did really well for me this past spring.
