Re: Chadwicks 477

I tried both a fine wired copper KB tied with the Berroco and a fine wired red KB with Berroco today on Nine Mile Creek (a spring fortified creek in cry with heavy scud population), despite a fairly consistent BWO hatch that went off for a good portion of the afternoon. There were good numbers of Ca...

Re: Music

Grateful Dead, usually prefer something in the 68-70, 72-73, or 89-90 era depending on mood. Actually a lot of bluegrass at the bench, its one of the only places I listen to bluegrass these days for some reason

I have a box of flies attributed to Bergman and a number of the Fanwings have the tag. Ill try to snap some pix if anyone would like to see. I was of the mind that it was a Bergm...
