Re: Isonychia Nymph

Very nice fly. Great fly for the Esopus tied with dare I say UV Ice Dub in the darker colors, Peacock, Black and even Purple.

Austin? I'm from Port Aurthur. Nice to see another fly fishing Texan.

Re: Sinking Tip Fly Lines

Thanks, MY photography could use some work though. I really try to fish the unweighted ones as much as possible unless I'm trying to get down in some narrow runs or channels just for that reason. Double hauling a 7-9wt and catching some dumbells in back of your head hurts a little bit. They do eat u...

Re: Montana Fly Company

I just ordered a few 100 8-12 2x dries from The Fly Shop and waiting to try them out. Last year I tried Allen Co. in the sime size range and thought they could have been a little smaller gauge and the eyes had some issues on some.

Re: Sinking Tip Fly Lines

That's what my crew calls my streamers. I run 2 2/0 hooks joined with 7 strand nylon coated stainless and 2-3 beads in between. Beleive it or not I catch almost as many trophy chubs as trophy trout. Always makes me laugh. These are mediums at 6-7in long. Don't know why I use the second hook as I've ...

Re: Sinking Tip Fly Lines

It is true of our Catskill Bows. A few are caught here and there in the D on streamers but again they are usually small flies. When I'm up on the bow of my drift boat throwing BIG stuff it's comical to watch the Bows come and follow them. They never strike at them and it looks like they are coming o...

Re: Sinking Tip Fly Lines

I was on the Esopus Monday fishing streamers as described and caught a few browns, nothing big BUT I rolled a nice fish that refused to participate a second time... speaking of which, it's been my experience that while streamer fishing in autumn can be a very effective way of moving Esopus Creek br...

Re: Sinking Tip Fly Lines

I have not checked in here in a while but I had to add my 2 cents here. I hate sink tips that are not integrated. Integrated sinktips are so much more smoother than an added section of T-14 or whatever because there is no hinge in the line to hinge when you cast giving you the herky jerky or a crumb...

Spey Hackle

Hey guys I hope you can help me out here. I picked up some Deke's Spey Hackle the other day at my local shop. I was told that I need to split the feather before being able to wrap it on a fly. Easy enough right...... not so much. So I investigated online. Apparently I should be able to grab a few fi...
