Thanks so much for your explanation Alan. I view your blog often and had always wondered about your setup and techniques.

Re: I Hope The Good Doctor Doesn't Mind

Alan looks like you have the WD hackleing down pat. I sure enjoy your skills sharing these field experiences. I have yet to dabble into the talent needed to fish a short two weight. Would you be so kind as to give us some idea what your rigging might be on a daily bases so as to get the various offe...

Re: Black Magic

Nice ties Alan. I have to say I was surprised to read that the peacock was not well received by the brookies. Ya know I suppose most of us try to get that hackle wrapped just so so. As I have said many times, a few fish on that fly and it will never look the same again. The good news is that they wi...

Re: The "Outback" and it's Browns

Agreed Bill, with that broken water one would have to believe in a short time the place will be teeming with active aquatic life. I wish my little streams had a lot more of what Alan has shared.

Re: How small ...

Great thread and an eye opener to the potential of small. The Davy knot has become a regular for me and I need to remind myself to change when going to larger flies.

Re: Groundhogs

Right you are Ed, just too many flies. Had it not been for an article a friend of mine wrote and shared with me several years ago about the Llama I may have never found need to give them a try. Even then it was years after reading the article that I tied a few and gave them a try. Tie them sparse we...

Re: Groundhogs

Careful there Ed. Since finding the Llama fly I've come to rather admire the groundhog. ;) Oh by the way, thanks for the heads-up on those stoneflies.

Re: Home Waters

Excellent Alan. Is that soft hackle a starling and purple? It looks very close to what I started with the other day. Minus the flashy thorax though.

Re: North Country Flies

Thanks Alan, that's just what I was afraid of. To bad, as for the price the starling I think is an exceptional bargain. I should also explain in my previous post I must have still had the pics from your blog etched in my brain, thus the comments about the stream. Getting old is so much fun. ;) Regar...
