I like "sulphur" because I like the way "ph" looks. 'Filosophy' may be a good transcription from the Greek, but it hurts my eyes. Talking about eyes, could you share a photo of your sulphur dun, Ed? Alex When I say stuff to myself it's always spelled with the 'PH'. When I say the same stuff out lou...
The fact that you had the presence of mind to save flies given to you by the gods says something; piscatorial tone deafness would have had me tying them on and loosing them as if they were just another hardware store fly. Well done, Sir.
...Condor quill. Amazing.

Not being a dry fly man I am always amazed at the skill it must take to tie such small offerings, let alone fish them. I was floating around the edge of the lake in my kayak yesterday and found myself surrounded by several of the smallest Mayflies I've ever seen. I have no idea what variety they mig...
I wish we'd get a little of that. Water levels up here are the lowest I can remember for this point in the season. Hay yields are half of what they should be and water temps are way up.
I started using a wading staff after having spinal fusion surgery 6 years ago. I'd always been a fearless wader and I remember being so surprised by my loss of confidence after recovering; I won't walk through a puddle in my yard without one any more. I've made a bunch of them from small saplings he...
Great thread, great suggestions. I had the same problem Ed did tonight, with the same same pattern. I was fishing a P&O on the Fish River and my very first fish shredded the fly. Ed must tie tougher flies than I do, I could only get about 4 fish before the fly was totally trashed.

so, was fishing northcountry streams in early-June, and was tying up some wet flies to take on the trip. Looking at what I had in my box, I decided that I was lacking "yellow flies". Sometimes, the brown trout, especially, seem to prefer yellow, I've found. I often sit at the vice, and tie whatever...

St Froid, Because I live in the Catskills with limited time and resources for travel, heritage water is pretty much all I know. I don't know the Salmon River, but it's certainly on my bucket list. I get the impression that for the most part, it's a fall and winter proposition ? Anything happening t...
Nice photos, Ed. I've fished Pittsburg my entire life, my NH grandparents having a camp there since the end of WWII. I just recently sold my own camp up on Indian Stream, the drive from northern Maine just gets longer and longer every year. There's a lot of nice uncrowded water if a person is willin...
