Re: My new vise of choice

That suits you and your classic ways perfect man, good choice of fly too!
Glad it got to you so quickly also, I’m always afraid those usps trucks are stuck in the snow up your way.
Enjoy buddy, CJ

Re: My new vise of choice

That’s one of Mikes wet fly in the jaws....a couple years ago I was tying at the guilds booth and he dropped a couple of them in front of me as he walked by. Just like that.....

Re: My new vise of choice

Mike supplied the brass base and antique vise, I just made a couple pieces to make it work. That and it’s blued for that cool old look.
A few more shots....

Re: My new vise of choice

Mike’s vise..... not one of those spinning/rotating/multi angle, chrome, alloy aircraft grade aluminum things, just a vintage hook holder for a guy that has done more to keep the classic patterns alive and interesting than anyone I know. Thanks for all your generosity through the years Mike, and alw...

Re: New regulations in region 3

I understand there are many pieces to this puzzle that need addressing. My thing, my “quest” you could call it, is fighting this “open season” idea. To allow these small streams to be open during the spawn is just wrong. It’s god damn wrong. They can stock iffy streams, or don’t stock anything for t...

Re: New regulations in region 3

But it's serious that we need to be vocal about protecting spawning grounds and headwaters. I sent my letter in last week, and urge others to do so also. bb Thank you bearbutt....your absolutely right on protecting the spawning areas. Some of these tribs go directly to the Delaware, and some hefty ...

Re: New regulations in region 3

I see the main problem to any regulation new or old is the enforcement. I read how understaffed law enforcement is already. If the idea "reaches" to regulate a stream is even considered think of how that could be enforced. Some guy is supposed to watch a portion of a stream and not another part of ...

New regulations in region 3

Some of you may have heard, some may be involved already and maybe some don’t know about it yet.... but there is a change headed our (region 3’s) way and it’s not good. A proposed new set of stream rules are on the table and the most alarming of all is the “open season” in spawning tributaries. As m...

Re: Demo Tying

Familiar stuff, the flies you can almost do without looking. Like Ed mentioned, you don’t need a lot of materials, most guys I see tying bring what appears to be their whole stash and end up making soft hackles the whole time😂😂 It’s amazing how little you need to make a dozen flies. I think it was D...
