  1. Great job! Thanks for teaching the youth.
  2. A mop fly doesn't teach any fly tying skills. The wooly bugger taught the technique of tying a fly and gave the new tyer a foundation to build on. You aren't teaching anyone anything doing mop flies. Next they'll move on to foam and crazy glue.
  3. I tried a few different ones including a homemade one and finally gave in and bought the Regal one. I like it and use it often. It's not cheap but works the best of all the ones I tried.
  4. Use to tie 1,000s of these back when I was tying commercially. Just search YouTube for "tying glo bugs". There are a bunch of videos. It's just 3 pieces of yarn tied in together and one quick snip with the scissors. Very quick and easy to do.
  5. To each his own I guess. Some people drive old Honda's others drive new BMWs.
  6. My name is Terry and I have a vise addiction. I've been tying for 45+ years, 10 of those years commercially and I have accumulated a lot of material, hooks, tools and oh boy...vises. Today my newest vise arrived, a Regal Revolution with the Stainless Steel Jaws. Oh what a nice vise. I have another revolution with the standard head and it's nice...very nice but the stainless jaws give you lots of room to work. It's a bit pricey, but worth it. I'm going to enjoy tying on this new vise. In my arsenal I have Dyna-King, Renzetti's and Regals. Anyone else have my problem? It's ok.....life is too short not to enjoy it.
  7. Oh I miss scrapple....and Taylor Pork Roll....and Philly Cheesesteaks. Ok...you made me homesick.
