Re: Brook trout wet flies

Oh man Ed, that fly wallet is showing some veterans of the stream. All ready to hit the stream once again. The only bad part of your post is reading that you have completed tying your wet flies. This has been a very enjoyable thread.

Re: Dorato Hare's Ear

Ed it looks like I sort of echoed much of what you had previously stated and I am sorry about that. That can either be scratched up to a mighty short memory or the need for someone that seldom posts here to try and add a little to the conversation. Seriously, you folks are so darn well referenced on...

Re: Dorato Hare's Ear

In Dick Talleur's " Mastering the Art Of Fly Tying" he does a tutorial on the Hares Ear dry (Dorato). He briefly mentions clipping or squaring off the bottom hackle so as to aid in skittering the fly although he says that this is an option and some prefer to leave the hackle as wrapped. He also ment...

Re: November fishing: Arnold Gingrich and me

Ed I seem to recall you mentioning once before that taking an untimely dip does happen from time to time. This time of year do you take a change of clothes along so as to save from an uncomfortable ride back home?

Re: What’s in a name anyway

CJ I hope you won't mind. I have to do a copy and paste of this story. You see a friend of mine living out west has now told me twice of this really well tied Light Cahill he had tied complete with the fan wing.
