Re: Tiniest Hook

Hi guys,
I’m not sure that these hooks were ever meant for actual fishing. As I wrote, Hans W. Mailed them out as a tying challenge. I’ve used these hooks as inlaids on some rods I’ve built.
Good for conversation not fishing (perhaps).

Re: Tiniest Hook

Guys,
Just to clarify: Was asking specifically about the Mustad gold plated size 32. If your not familiar with it, it is about 1/3 the size of the Tiemco #32.

Tiniest Hook

I recall when Hans sent me a Mustad #32 to tie a fly and mail back to him so he could photo and post along with flies tied by others.

Re: This pattern familiar?

Thanks for reply. When I went back in time I saw that Ted Neimeyer(sp) was referenced. I no longer have the old Fly Tyer magazines but I remembered the pattern and can visualize how it was tied.
Well thanks for pointing me in the direction of that previous thread.

This pattern familiar?

Is anyone familiar with the fly pattern called the ‘Riffle Dun’? I believe it was originated by Walt Dette. Do not have access to the Dette book and searches do not get results.
Photo and/or recipe would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Re: Mustard size 32’s

I don’t think the site had that name and the posted request was from several years ago. Just thought that maybe the person visited this site as well.

Re: Special Dubbing

You may remember my fishing buddy Mike (NY Angler). Well we were fishing a particular hole on the Willow. Now he’s a lefty so we were able to fish right next to each other. We were both using March Brown wets. Everything was the same except I caught some trout and some followed my fly. He did not. ...
