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

Never could stand junk on my vise. My tying table topper has a light background so I can see easily. I did break down and order one of Regal's material springs to fit my vise head so I won't always be hanging my bobbin behind the handle when I want to tie off a parachute. Ten dollars for a little sp...

Re: Don Bastian - RIP

I never met Don, but his fly tying made an impact on my own tying and fishing. Twenty years ago I tried to fish a few days each season with Pat Schuler, one of the best guides ever on the Upper Delaware system, and Don tied some flies for Pat. We had great days fishing the Green Drake hatch and Don'...

Re: Soft hackles

I have tied some of that style as well, with a dark brown dubbing blend of squirrel and Antron. Your's looks to have a slight claret cast to it Tom, or id that a trick of the lighting? Great flies for fishing the many levels of a hatch. I have tied CDC emergers for thirty years like this one, to get...

Re: Roscoe shops open in Winter?

I expect a business decision. He has a much larger shop and display area in the Manor, is on one of the main roads and right across from the Willowemoc. He carries a lot of gear now, rods & reels, waders & boots, and of course a lot of tying material. His new shop is the only shop in the Manor too, ...

Re: New regulations in region 3

The proposed regs and management plan is on the DEC website and there is a short window for comment. I believe it ends on January 15th. I already sent in mine. The good news for the Delaware is reduced creel limit and elimination of stocking in the East Branch tailwater. The bad news is they kept th...

Re: Hendrickson

Yes, you'll note that Winne splayed her tails a bit as I like to do, while Mary bunched her fivers tighter and cocked them up with a turn of thread underneath. I was fortunate to begin my Catskill pilgrimages in time to watch all three Dettes, Walt, Winne and Mary tie. M y copy of the book has all o...

You need a white chicken cape, Clorox bleach and the Rit dye or other suitable dye. I did sulfur orange and sulfur...
