  2. also a good imitation of a bally-hoo. a musky fly
  3. size 12 hendrickson emergers using wooly mammoth dubbing in raw meat and rotting flesh colors.
  4. when tying drys no coating will float easy, coating with uv will sink the material
  5. I will stick with my non-quill material, it floats, takes a marker and is super strong. 1/16 in width and any color I wish to dye it.
  6. Um, that doesn't sound right. ;-) I'm not working on much right now. Tying desk looks like a tornado went through it, so that should get cleaned up before anything else happens. By the way, anyone heard of or used Moonlit hooks? I stumbled across them this morning and thinking of ordering a few packs to try out. sounds cheesy to me---lol
  7. philly yes I do blend in flash. Norm my whole house is like this lots of tying stuff. lol. I have wooly mammoth hair in dubbing
  8. shrimp flies, using old (swannundaze) and new (congo hair / anglina) materials
  9. blending and working with congo hair
  10. I use them below my small swivels when trolling flies or using wets (#10-4) on lakes. Dave G. not the same thing
