Re: Hook Porn

You guys are sick. Told Dana sometime ago I had quite a few flies. Ha, I don't have squat. I just sent some hooks to a fellow in Montana that's measuring and photographing hooks. Sick, sick, sick. :D

When you plucked the feathers, did you notice the reddish tinged ones in the front(by the crop)? There is only a few......Ive never seen these for sale anywhere - i use them for wings on my isonychia & leptophlebia duns......
I didn't pluck them just counted them. I'll look and see.

Re: Art Flick

John, if you look at Flicks ephemerella s. you'll see a distinctly red head. Yet his photo S. vicarium it certainly does not have the red head. Bob, i am not following your thought process... >>>> Flick on his march brown he uses orange thread <<<< i thought you were talking about orange thread, no...

Perhaps he was thinking of things in general about tying one pattern for all the Stenonema species. http://www.wiflyfisher.com/images/Stenacron-dun-yellow-sally.jpg http://www.wiflyfisher.com/images/march-brown/march-brown-dun-underside.jpg http://www.wiflyfisher.com/images/march-brown/march-brown-...

Perhaps Art was ahead of his time on that one and put a hot spot on it.

I am of the same mind. After all Fran Betters did the same. Maybe not so much as a hot spot as we know of it today.

Art Flick

Here's a question about Flick on his march brown he uses orange thread but if you look at a march brown, troutnut, it has nowhere a red or orange head. Now the "red quill" does have a red head. I wonder why he went the way he did"
