Re: Leaders

I have used the 60-20 part of the equation for, I hate to admit it, 50 years, but the tippet has always been a function of the water I'm fishing. In fast water, riffles or pockets where I am looking for accuracy, it might be 10%, on a spring creek it might be 40% or more. So for a 12' foot leader I ...

Re: Dam

Totally off topic, but the 220 Swift was a great shell. Wish I'd held on to one or two! :D :D :D

Just to narrow it down, I have Surrette's Fly Tyer Pattern Bible which was published in 1985 and contains all the patterns in fly Tyer from first issue through 1985. It is not mentioned in there. Could check up at the museum if you'd like?
