  1. Schweibert opened "Nymphs" reminiscing his experience fishing Germany in the 50's, but I think on the opposite side of the country as where you'll be: "The Lauterach is a classic little river. It's winding meadows and willow-lined pools were the laboratory where I first learned to fish nymphs well."
  2. Oh those are both great. Was the visible your variation? Looks like a secret agent
  3. Oh man, now I need to go to Nova Scotia. Great stuff
  4. Here are two... Theodore Gordon to GEM Skues, Feb 18, 1909: " A brown, mottled partridge hackle on a light bluish dun body, ribbed with fine silver twist was quite killing.” And another Gordon to Skues March 10, 1912: “a very small fly with mouse colored body and gray partridge hackle that killed well on slow streams, fished wet.” Found here: http://softhacklepatternbook.blogspot.com/2015/05/gordon-hackle.html
  5. Oh, and Schweibert has a nice chapter on the history of American nymph fishing. Let me know if you want it (7 pages) and pm me your address, I'm happy to send it.

  7. The forum is "powered by Invision Community," here's the website: https://invisioncommunity.com/features/forums/ Looks like it's their vanilla forum product. I hope Will does address this, it's a good forum.
