Re: A new member from Italy

Alberto,

Welcome to the forum.
I'm glad you had such a good day on the Beaverkill and Willowemoc. What do you think of Ted's streamer?

You once told me you hated that fly. I guess that view has changed. It has everything going for it including the guy that first tied it up.

I have always hated the fly, and still do. I never said it did not catch fish, that it does very well.

Re: a thread on thread

About 90% of my tying is with white Uni 8/0, with our special wax. I also like Uni Cord when I want something very strong.
I hate slick threads, things just tend to come undone.

Triple Threat Caddis

It deeply pains me to do this, but I must give credit where credit is due. Jim Slattery's Triple Threat Caddis has caught fish for me 3 days in a row now. For those who don't know the pattern, here is a picture. http://www.dettetroutflies.com/forums/grttc.jpg I tend to have the most luck with this f...

Re: Bugs that bite

It was bad last year, and the year before, and the year before, but they are early this year. Bug repellant can help, but the black flies sometime ignore it. On the East and West Branch things are a little better when you are in the water because the cold air from the water keeps most away.

Re: Fifty Degrees

Off the top of my head, I thought the pattern called for pintail pin-feathers, but the two birds are SO close and your wings look dead on in terms of the type of feather.

Joe

Edit: After looking into it you are right teal pin-feathers.

Re: Davidson Special

Very well tied, How do you determine the length of the split wing ? is it just hook shank length? I tend to use the hook length minus the eye as my guide. For most hooks this produces a wings just a little longer then the hackle. That being said everyone has their own guide and want different resul...

I looked quickly but did not find anything, but will dig deeper tomorrow.
