    Clouser Leader Kit- Any Interest?

    Good stuff. I’ve been having issues with blood knots of late. For me it’s failing eyes. I’m going to have to expand my knot repertoire. That sounds like an awful condition for you Mark. I hope you can find some relief for it.

    Cmon Rich! You are so great at creating a fly that will hunt. They are not “lifelike” yet seem alive 👍🏻

    Knot tying is a skill. Take time to be precise, just as we do while tying our favorite patterns. Perfect practice makes perfect 😎 Go to globalflyfisher.com. There are many leader formulas to choose from.

    Ron Kurasz has Passed Away

    I can’t say anything more than what has already been said here. I’ve never had the pleasure of sharing the water with Mr Ron, but had some nice conversation at some of our events. Life is truly too short. I resolve to reach out to our membership to share time on the water. Godspeed RonK

    Ray Raynor was like my Good Morning America while I was growing up on the north side of Chicago. RW = red/white. Rodger that! It was a fun tie. There where step by step instructions in the magazine. I had most materials. Some I made do.

    Never thought of those for Steelhead. I figured them for warm water species. I am going to get up there to try again, Tom!

    forgive me fellas but what is RW? I have not fished these patterns. Just getting a little creative. The complex ones with the zonkers are from Fly Tyer mag spring '17 issue. It's called a "white demon". I'll let you know if they hunt. Sadly my version looks like Ray Raynor's version! (I've just aged myself). The others are an interpretation of Tim Holshlag"s patterns. Thanks
