I think you mentioned in another post that you fish Pine. Sandfly, a member here has a shop there. You should get in touch with him if you haven't been to it already.

These books are pretty solid. The first has more on the streams themselves and the second will really help you hone in on the hatches.

Thanks for those reccomendations, just very subtly (aka telling her) my wife to put one of those in my stocking this year. Hopefully I've been a good boy this year.

And I do fish pine but was not aware of a fly shop down there, I'll definitely have to check it out his spring.

I just wish I had planned as well for my financial future as I have for my fly tying future!!!

hard to pass up a good deal, especially on golden pheasant skins, I would buy pheasant skins like most guys buy a six pack, one a day or one a week would be all good.
the material will build up spontaneously , time is the thing.
my old tying pal says don't just set it on the bench and look at it, use it.
some thread and an inexpensive imported dry fly neck, some floss, tinsel and your ready. if you don't get tired of breaking thread for hours on end and actually get the hang of it there wll be patterns galore to try.

oh chenille , get some chenille , any color will do, as long as it is black
