  1. The Dan Bailey connection makes perfect sense . . . not every "Wulff" fly was originated by Lee. It was basically a high floating hair-wing style.
  2. Originator: Henry Leon "Lee" Wulff (February 10, 1905 – April 28, 1991), Catskills / Beaverkill River, started the catch and release dialogue with: “Game fish are too valuable to be caught only once.” American Fly Tying Manual, Dave Hughes, 1986, p22 Dry fly hook 6-16, black thread, Deer hair wing and tail, brown and grizzly hackle, yellow floss body. Regards,
  3. This was very interesting, and thank you for sharing. Do you have any idea how it compares to good ol' Overton's Wonder Wax? Or perhaps that comparison is best applied to the "dubbing formula" vs the one you show here which is the "tying formula". It is impressive how well a good tying wax helps with thread slippage/avalanche . . . I frequently use wax, but I'm guess that those brave souls engaged in tying those intricate salmon flies would really use this to their advantage! Regards,
  4. Interesting! Welcome, and thanks for sharing. I'd be curious to hear how it works when used as dubbing . . . I can't tell from the video if it's fine, course, or somewhere in between. Regards,
  5. And now it's working fine - I have no idea what happened!
  6. I can't seem to go to the "next page" of a forum topic - when I hit "Page 2" or "Next", nothing happens. I tried rebooting the PC, and resetting my password. It was working just fine a few days ago. Any suggestions? Regards,
  7. Beauty! Tups is an unusual, and frequently overlooked color. Regards,
  8. Yes, I tried that several times before I asked. It shows that English was selected, but the text is still in German.
  9. I'm having trouble getting the Featherbase translator to switch to English - seems to be stuck on German. Any suggestions?
  10. This is a very cool resource - thanks for sharing! Can't find jungle cock . . . tried Jungle Cock, Junglecock, Grey Junglefowl, etc. Regards,
  11. I realize this is an older thread, but I'll post my 2¢ worth anyway. Decades ago my wife declared my tying bench was an embarrassing "$h1t Show", and bought me an antique roll-top desk. It was actually great with all the drawers and cubby holes, and I could cover up my mess. But soon I even outgrew that, so had to buy a separate cabinet with 19 drawers - which is now also completely full! Both pieces of furniture are fairly well organized, but I still buy duplicates all the time, particularly dubbing and plastic midge d-rib / micro tubing. Collecting materials is sort of an "illness", but a fun one! Regards,
  12. Capt Bob LeMay, Have you heard of the Bristle Worm in your area? Regards,
  13. Best wishes with your new hobby - it is addicting!
  14. Just taking a shot here! . . . I thought a "bristle" (in Denmark/Scandanavia) was a type of worm that was particularly favored by Seatrout? . . . I haven't been to Denmark in 15 years, but I seem to recall a friend there mentioning bristle worms used as bait (and representative flies) for several saltwater species. I also think that the real critter can bite or sting (non-lethal)! p.s. I think they also can be found in some Florida waters, which is where I may have first heard of them (chasing bonefish, permit, tarpon in the Florida Keys). Regards,
