    Any Rod Builders here

    i have been making bamboo rods for over 20yrs. while there are differences, it is best to do it because you love it than with profit in mind. timothy

    Who's tying what?

    I think the shrimp color is spot on for the correct time of the year and the Mcginty colors are close to my heart. Timothy

    Dubbing Loop vs X-cut Rabbit Strip

    mike, my introduction to using the dubbing loop was tying leisenring wet flys, then scot hair hackling techniques. it is just one more tool on the belt. lately dubbing loops seem to be a short cut for obtaining large flies that would cost you a sawbuck in a fly shop. i do not like spinning deer hair. i can do it, i have done it but aside for a muddler minnow or two i would just as soon not do it. i also avoid genetic hackle, hot spots, bobbers and the new nymphing techniques formally referred to as jigging. i make bamboo rods and have fished bamboo since i was a kid. "plastic" rods have their place. i do believe in "upping the odds" as a way to increase my enjoyment. then some people like reclining on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn in front of the boob tube. there is a definite learning curve with dubbing loops. i enjoy learning new things. there are things i did not enjoy learning. timothy

    Dubbing Loop vs X-cut Rabbit Strip

    mike, some times it might not make a difference. i have found it to be less bulky and is poosible to be a lot less bulky. when the fly is wet the fur without the leather strip will shed water more readily and weigh less casting. a dubbing loop can be used on a smaller hook than a strip. why? because it is fun! when i started using the technique a lot fewer people were using it. now that it is being made so popular i will have to look for some other way to be different. timothy
