Re: Terrestrials--- what do you think?

I think Marinaro wrote about the development of terrestrial patterns lengthing the fishing season, or maybe it was the other way around. Either way the history of terrestrial patterns here in PA is rich (albeit at times debated). I like tying and fishing deer hair ants, and fur ants in smaller sizes...

Re: Terrestrials and thoughts of autumn

Beautiful flies, and certainly effective! It looks like you used a black wing on the hopper, or is that a trick of the light? I fish the letort cricket quite a bit in late summer and fall and it never let's me down.

Re: Music

I mostly listen to WRTI (Temple U) which plays classical 6am-6pm, and jazz after 6pm. It is background for me and is on all day. Once baseball season gets rolling I'll add in the Phils.

Chuck Caddis

Hello again! I have been absent/lurking for quite a while. Between work and general life stuff I have had little time for tying and very little time for internet activity for almost a year now. I have been checking in and keeping up on the forums, and as the posts here on SGM are always a great brea...

Re: Researching Stimulator History

Thanks Jim, That is fantastic information and I really appreciate it. I know that many of us enjoy the back story behind a pattern and knowing what the tyer was thinking when he came up with a new fly. The fact that you started with the captured stone fly is much better than the story I was piecing ...

Thanks Narcodog. I didn't realize he was still in business. I sent an email and hope to get some information from the source.

Researching Stimulator History

I'm hoping the collective knowledge here can help me out with some research I'm doing on the stimulator. I'm tying a demo of this pattern next Saturday and I thought it might be fun to put together a display that traces the fascinating (at least in my opinion) genealogy of this well known pattern. S...

Re: Let the tying begin

Those are nice ties! First significant snowfall in my neck of the woods marks the start of tying season for me. I'm not starting off with as much ambition as you though. Black nose dace and Mickey Finn's tonight. And Tullamore Dew as my Celtic inspiration.

Re: The new book is here!!!!

I preordered from Amazon back in May, and my copy arrived today! The plan was to save this for winter reading, but after a quick skim I don't think I have the will power to pull that off.
