    new material

    i had [posted a yarn alert in july when they discontinued the cloud 9 yarn. now they have filled the bins at hobby lobby with a similar but larger yarn . yarn bee now has a fur of the moment eyelash yarn . as cloud 9 was 1/4 inch this new one is 1/2inch,snuggle up yarn is 3/4inch thi s yarn is as close as you can get to rabbit fur.colors are not the best but they have white,cream dark brown,light pink and 3 darker two tone that should work. i am thinking of doing a Bugs N Bears tying session at Runaways in N Aurora. they are normally closed on sunday but will be open for noon games only. so we can have a drink tie some flies and jigs and watch da bears, will let you know
  3. never seen a good kit. buy a vise and tools separately mike knows all about using other materials such as dino blocks, yarn.

    tequelly fly

    john l told me that the coppery body is only available to orvis that ties the pattern. i picked one up yesterday at yorktown orvis. i plan to tie some on a offset worm hook with lead wire on the bottom of shank so it rides point up

    tequelly fly

    that fly is a proven winner by our club anglers. has anyone tried tying them if different colors or sizes. yellow/copper seems to be the only one sold

  10. without a doubt Sgt Tommy had a hand in pushing the rain away and gave us overcast skies and a wonderful breeze. what a great event to get families fishing again and more importantly OUTSIDE. i heard from many saying that they havent fished in many years and wanted get the little ones fishing. i will offer to run a basic knot tying booth next year.
  11. i have a few extra rods for casting and another for the felt fish. good to see that eugene is coming, he can handle a bunch by himself. gee i might have a fly for him
  12. just a reminder it this saturday i have the targets, cones, rods n reels, banner , velcro fish rich
  13. shab has a visibility of about 8 inches. no we dont get those clumps . crappies here will spawn deeper in clear water, so i think they will be at the bank. thats right on for tenkara
