  1. Well dang, I didn't read Capt. Bobs reply very well.
  2. How does the stretch cord hold up in aging? Does it get brittle over time?
  3. I fish both but also like Bennett better. Montauk has a little more wilderness feel but unless you have a camper, lodging pretty much sucks. The park motel leaves a lot to be desired and is way overpriced.
  4. One of the top flies ever invented- wooly worms in brown and olive.
  5. Yes, they were a neat little item. Surprised someone still doesn't make them.
  6. Tim, the Tool Guy, would have tripled the size and attached a 1/2 hp motor.
  7. I was going to make one of those too. But then I got to thinking-heck I ain't got the slightest idea how to do it!. Just kidding of course, but will be interested in seeing your final product.
  8. Before I'd start hammering on it I would contact Dyna-King to get their advice-maybe even send the head in to have them look at it.
  9. Very nice. Where did you get the multi colored drawer units on the right side of the table. Is that one unit or three units stacked.
  10. Thanks Steve. I'm sending you a PM.
  11. What are microwave guides? Is that the same as the "staggered guides"? What is the advantage over regular guide placement?
  12. If trout only see 1/14th of the detail that we do (and I'm not doubting you) then there seems to be little reason for us to go to such great efforts in our tying to get the most detail in our flies. If the trout can't discern the details that much then why bother with it in tying.
  13. Thanks for the additional info. I think I follow what you did now. Not sure what you mean by "live-edge piece". Do you mean one of those semi-circular pieces of walnut with the bark still on it? Actually I have not fully decided on exactly what I will use for a base yet but am leaning towards some combination of walnut and granite (or polished marble) with an inlay in the walnut. I've got some marble but no longer have a means of drilling a hole in it. I used to work in the ceramics industry and had access to diamond drill bits but no more have access to them.
  14. Fantastic set-up. I really like how you set up that drill bit chuck to hold the vise, but I don't quite follow how you attached the underside to the desktop. Could you elaborate a little? I would like to use the same thing to make a pedestal base out of some walnut wood I have. Thanks
  15. Great looking fly and video. Didn't catch the name of that material from FTD-what was it?
