Re: Kudo's to Nicole

Just received my Winter 2018 issue of Fly Tyer , and want to give a shout-out to Nicole March of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild, among other noteworthy organizations, for her article "Going Wild with Quills", pages 34-41 in this magazine. It's the second nice piece I've seen by Nicole in recent month...

Re: Humpy

You now, I've been throwing Humpy's almost from the beginning and I've yet to catch a trout on one.

Re: Humpy

... I found it deceptively difficult to tie at first; it looked easy, it wasn't. ... I agree... if one doesn't tie these often, or in bunches, it can be a tough dry to tie and look pretty when it's done... that's why I think Ibookje did a great job with his. Sometimes I only tie 2 or 3, perhaps eve...

Re: Scout Trout
