Re: Joe's smelt

You guys make me laugh. I was just asking about obtaining the proper feather. very narrow elvers feather. Or how to tye the wide feathers I have to look good on a hook. I have no desire to fish them. I just want to tye them as close to the original pattern as possible.

Re: Don't let this happen to you!

Someone needs to have better inventory control, or tell her to stay out of the tying room. A man needs his space.

Joe's smelt

Last year I saw a fly that intrigued me, not that I will fish it much but I was told that the pintail feather , elver,used was difficult to obtain. After a years search I have obtained a few, not perfect but should work to practice with until I locate some that narrow enough to tye the fly properly....

Re: The elusive 20

A hook straightened by a large fish is a badge of honor. I agree. More so if it was a large hook. I also believe some hooks are springy enough that they straighten to let the fish escape and then return to their original form. Yikes, that's the best theory I have seen presented in a long time.

Re: Couple of good ones

Very nice , what kind of Indy do you like to use? In calmer waters, I’ll use a yarn indicator. In choppier/faster riffles I use the small size (1/2”) airlock. I’ve caught a couple of fish when nymphing without an indicator, but suspect I need to add a lighter weight rod to my arsenal to pull it off...

Re: Saturday opener

Personally I take a few photo's just to remind me of the beauty of the fish. Saying that there are times that one cannot capture it. A case in point, I landed a grayling a few years ago, it was one of the most, no ,it was the most beautiful fish I have ever landed. The camera was not able to capture...

Re: Matched Duck Quills?

I have a trusted seller of on Ebay duck feathers when the season is on. Last year I asked her if I could get some matched duck wings and offered her $3.00 a pair, she agreed and I have a lot of matched wood duck wings. Now white would be more difficult for her to obtain I would think.
