Re: Special Dubbing

Phil & BB Thanks for your offers to baby sit the old Bearded Bohemian. Heck, I don't even know the date and place of the Badger show. Re: Dave Roberts, I wish I owned stock in the Feather Emporium. Last summer, I dropped $300+ on one visit to Dave's house. But I now have enough brown saddle hackles ...

Greenwell Dry Fly Hackles

Many years ago, a fellow in Germany sent me these hackles from "Ellis Slater" who, I firmly believe, used to have some of the finest materials for the old dressings. Too bad for the fly tying community thar Mr. Slater passed away several years ago.

Re: Special Dubbing

Bearbutt Going back to the pic you posted on the original Tup's dubbing, I have that same pic and, I believe, posted it on the Classic Rod Forum as a refefence after finding the pic on the internet many years ago. It's a good reference in making a similar dubbing. Quite a few years ago, a fellow in ...

Re: Hare's Ear Blend & Partridge Soft Hackles

Chuck Good guess. The dubbing blend used for these soft hackles is very close to the Pink Squirrel dubbing except Natural Hare's Ear and Dark Hare's Ear fur was used instead of gray squirrel fur. All the other materials used in the Pink Squirrel dubbing mixture were then mixed with either of the Har...

Heresy Maybe?

Recently, I've decided that I'd be modifying some of the old Norrth Country Spider / Soft Hackle dressings. So I guess my tyings would be best called "variations" and not by their original names. As examples, in several of Sylvester Nemes' books, he shows a Partridge and Orange / Yellow with a dubbe...
