  1. sounds like everyone is having a good time. I am thinking I would much rather be there than still sitting here at work articulating. Calgon take me away....LOL
  2. i pop in my local shop every saturday. i will take my copy in with me this weekend.
  3. if at all possible i would change the way it is bound. staples tear through and eventually the cover or the centerfold pages will come loose. unless of course you wind up putting i nice centerfold poster/pic in there for us to mount..LOL i liked the idea of having an article like the one on dubbing..not everyone (meaning me) has a good grasp on the basics. so a "beginners article" is quite helpful. then eventually one would be able to move on to some of the more adavced stuff that is in the other great step by steps.
  4. thanks for the compliment Graham. it was a pretty cool time. i was a nervous about tying in front of you guys but then Alex gave me a nice pattern he tied up so i had had to bite the bullet. my next project is doing a little something with the deer patch Brent gave me. i owe him a couple. Great group. THANKS TO ALL.
  5. it was definately a cool evening. i cant thank oatka enough for inviting me. :headbang: no one i hang with flyfishes let alone ties their own so this was my first time ever tying with anyone. i havent been tying very long and believe me i was nervous and intimidated going into this knowing the kind of experience that i was going to be surrounded by. me being a quiet and shy person didnt help either. i didnt have a clue about group tying etiquette or even how to act, or react. :bugeyes: this great group of guys really put me at ease and i eventually did wind up tying a fly in front of them. i had questions on techniques i wanted to ask about going in, but being so nervous i forgot to ask. and of course after i left i had thought up a million more i wish i had asked. the generosity on display was over the top and in reflection i wish i had had a bit more confidence in my ability because i really would have liked to return the favor. :wallbash: i was just blown away by it all. once again thank you oatka and thanks guys for your generosity and a pretty damn cool evening!! :yahoo: P.S. finding the house was easy, but i got lost on the way out....took a few extra turns to get back to Dewey....LOL
  6. yeah some lady on antiques roadshow had an antique spice chest worth 85 thou. that would have been 185 thousand if her father hadn't cleaned it up all those years ago.
  7. last year there were categories I just didn't vote in because I have no qualifications to determine what is right, wrong, good, or bad. vote on what you think should win and just go from there.
  8. ok...i think i understand the difference now. i'll never live long enough to know everything there is to know but i learned something today. sorry i hijacked the thread.
  9. i am all for a hall of shame listing. then if he wants to register and come on here and defend himself.....let him.
  10. is this what your looking for? http://www.flytyingforum.com/index.php?sho...;hl=rolled+wing so then a "folded wing" would be more like what is depicted in Oliver Edwards article in Summer 2007 Fly Tyer on top of page 59?
  11. AHHHHHHHHH.......... ok your copy is safe now, from me at least. Just got home fromwork and it was in the mailbox. woot!
  12. can't miss with balck and yellow combos for warmwater. nice job
  13. OATKA OMG i cant believe you got yours already. Last time we PMed you hadnt even ordered yet. Damn mailman must have stolen mine. Now i am coming to your house and steal yours!! I gotta check my email when i get home and see when i got my "order has been sent" message. Fair warning- you better put that in the safe overnight because i am coming after it.. most likely I typoed my address. that would be something I would do.
  14. good luck on getting the new job. sounds like a great opportunity to jump from the sinking ship. gotta be nerve racking working for a company that is imploding buildings every other week. there is a blue cross training facility next to where I work, and they sure do know how to take care of their own.
  15. only one fish face this past weekend. well at least the deck is in focus
  16. wow i really like that flexo minnow, and rudolph the red nosed mouse too. :-)
  17. as two separate items i can say i like the fly and i like the picture. both very nice indeed.
  18. the silver foil on the cardboard underside of my head cement cap is pretty much gone, so i always lay a piece of aluminum foil across the top of the bottle and make sure the threads are covered. it acts as a non-stick barrier. it usually last for a few uses and once it tears i just grab a fresh piece of foil. hope that helps in the future.
  19. it also affords me a creative outlet. ron p. you write and illustrate as well as tie so you know what I mean. I have had other outlets in the past that aforded me that opportunity always as hobbies. now I can be creative and have a usefull end product as well. I suppose the idea of tying my own being cheaper entered my mind, but in the long run tying looked like it might be a fun thing to do. and now 6 months into it I can say thtat I do enjoy it.
  20. I got into it because I didn't like the idea of paying for fllies and then have them not meet my expectations. Now at least I have no one to blame but myself, and I can deal with that much easier.
  21. 2/0 happy belated b-day mcfluff
