  1. Hello Rich. I recall when we met at One More Cast. I believe there was a small group of tyers there in the evening tying up some different patterns. I also remember showing you how to furl some fat chenille because you wanted to fish a chenille worm. I hope things have been going well for you and the group.
  2. I realized that I should have posted this in this section and not the member’s submission section... so...Its been a while since I’ve posted here as I have had my attention focused on other areas of fly tying and fly fishing. In addition to having my fly tying work inducted into the Master’s Collection at the Catskill Fly Tying Museum and also being selected as a ProStaff or ProTyer for some very well known U.S. and European fly tying/fishing companies, I have been looking into a number of European fly tying material and tools companies who don’t have a presence in the U.S. market (yet).

There are a couple in particular that I would like to tell you about. The first manufactures it’s own line o
  4. I have both the Rio Clouser and sink tip lines. The Clouser casts like a rocket. I don't own the SA Streamer Express developed by Kelly Galloup as its so new. Either one is great but the sink tip will get you down much deeper. You could also opt for the Clouser line with a sink tip made from Deep Water Express. I have made about a dozen sink tips ranging from 3' to 10' with Cortland loops on both ends that way I'm covered for all conditions.
  5. I ordered about 20 dispensers on line from a retailer that sells close outs for hygiene products. Keep in mind, they go dull really quick and you'll need alot of blades if you sping alot of hair.

    What are you tying that requires an epoxy head?
  7. Triple Surgeon's knot for leader connections and 16/20 knot at fly. That's all you need. I've landed hundreds of salmon and steelhead with these know and have yet to break off.
  8. Its got the right colors and size to be a good Pike fly.
  9. Looks like a decent tie. Sort of a 1/2 of an EP style minnow pattern. Is the back 1/2 articulated?

    I'd say Brownie Gal but she isn't holding a Brown, it's a Bow.
  11. The 3 streamers shown at the bottom are excellent ties and don't appear to be hybrids of any pattern I've come across. Might be a good idea to submit them to some of the manufacturers to see if you get a "bite".
  12. FFO.com is a decent site but the finished quality of the flies in the videos leave a bit to be desired but is a good place to start for new tyers.
  13. Unfortunately it will float like a cork but whoever tied it is has mad skills. The patterning along the sides at the various color transitions is incredible. Kudos! Mark
  14. It a synthetic "hackle" I have this material in several colors and sizes from (I believe) Wapsi. Its sold by hackle length, i.e. 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/2", etc... You're right, it looks great on buggers and for collar hackle on Steelhead flies.
  15. Mark: I've seen your work. Yours are just as good.
