Re: Not tying now

I was in another fly shop Thursday and I overheard the owner tell a guide "I don't know what he does, but Joe just sells the hell out of flies.." Reputation and quality will sell. I prefer his flies over other shops flies for the most part, plus the service is very good.

Re: Large Delawarev river Brown caught on DRY FLY !

You know, they guy caught the fish on a size 20, he had witness's give him his due rewards. What difference does it make if it came over the dam or not. I'm embarrassed at some of this answers. Why are you embarrassed? Nobody said anything derogatory at all about it being a reservoir fish. There ar...

Help with photographing fish

I see some mighty wonderful images on here. So far this year I'm having the best season in recent memory with quite a few fish. I am a pretty talented photographer (if I must brag) but favor landscapes. I am the WORST photographer of my catch because I usually fish alone. Anyone care to share some t...

Re: Large Delawarev river Brown caught on DRY FLY !

Exact thing I said to my buddy. This is unfortunately not a very good set of images making the fish look perhaps artificially large. Granted at 28" it's HUGE but doesn't that fish look about 36" in the photo? Also, I just don't buy it that the fish was eating #20 flies in the day time with water lev...

Re: Synthetic parachute wing material?

I started using EP materials last year and this years experiment will be ONE box of flies (other than my nymph box) full of EP flies (emergers, duns, caddis, spinners). Easy to tie, they float, and are versatile as all get out. I suspect on a few outing that's all I'll take this year to see the resu...

Re: Am I sub-human because I don't like my bobbin cradle??

You may be sub-human for using a rotary vise in the first place, but removing the bobbin cradle is the first step toward evolving. I have a cradle for my HMH that I never used, a total waste of $ among other fly-tying things... n never used my magnifying glass either... BUT, can't tie a single fly ...

Am I sub-human because I don't like my bobbin cradle??

I got my first rotary, a Renzetti Traveler, last year as I'm getting more into tying than I have in 20 years. Then I did the unthinkable after discovering JStockard, I "PIMPED" my vise. I don't know what got into me. Magnifying glass, attached light, the Renzetti bobbin cradle, low profile trash bin...
