    3 inch Eyelash

    we learned that from bill over ten years ago. the fly was called the murdered muppet .the part of adding tear mender is new. and back then nobody used shanks. the stretching of the craft hair only works with hareline brand .
  4. thanks for the notice.ive missed one and dontplan on missing another. yes for the fly casting.
  5. the whole key to these flies is how it is trimmed i have even used some goop to make a solid tail fin on the big fly . it helps to keel the fly and gives it a bigger kick when stripped . mike one thing when making the longer flies , if you add some foam to the shank or some material, it will give the body more girthwhich will help in getting a truer minnow shape. i do like your idea of the shank over a wire and bead connector.
  6. 11 showed up to learn a few things about furling, and using satin. awesome patty melt and bock beer finished the event for me. think we will try a summer session tying topwater stuff there.
  7. for those attending items to bring is a ruler, if your a jig tyer bring your fav plastic to copy. i do have a few mushroom heads in case ned shows up!
  8. few of the flies and jigs we will tie tomorrow . we will start small2.5 inches and 1/32 jigheads and get larger.
  9. there was a video on making slip floats super balanced they used a styrofoam one that had the wire going thru it and a round strip of lead at the base. long story, bend out the wire, remove weight , cut the float in half and cut hole to put the weight dead center, glue the halves back togethrer and re string the wire. i learned slip bobbering from the best at shabbona, the only way to fish the cribs here and the deep trees
  10. trying to get a count of how many plan on attending . thanks rich

    Blow out

    i wanted to go but wife had other plans . so what tips did andrew mention about fishing deep clear lakes?
  12. they are effective i use more red colored inthe spring, few weeks after ice out on ponds. olive claws brown body with chart skirt antenae and side legs as weeds start. when itsmuddy black n blue rules, same as when it gets dark in the evening rich
  13. will be doing some new patterns and jigs using eyelash yarn and satin material. eyelash yarn is better than the chenille as it has more action and lighter is weight to cast when wet.
  14. if she had a 20% reduction in workforce it may have been due to retirement and a hiring freeze.
