Re: No Hackle dun

Back in the late 70's Harrop was tying them for Orvis. He tied beautifully, including size 24 BWO's. They were the most effective BWO's I have ever fished with. I began tying them my self, but switched over to tiny parachutes which I found so much easier to tie. I still can't imagine how he could ti...

Re: Eastern Fly Fishing - May/June 2020

At one of the golf tournaments, Tiger Woods was at the first tee being announced. They started naming all the events he had won, until, finally, Phil Mickleson yelled, "Wouldn't it be easier if you named the ones he hasn't won?"

Re: Dave Brandt

Sad to hear. Dave was a special kind of person. I will miss him, as I am sure everyone on this site will. Going have to hoist a Newcastle Brown in his memory.
