Re: 5wt switch, Sage One or Orvis H2

I'd cast em if you can. Use a Rio switch line for the weight switch that you get or try a long belly line for a 7 wt. Single hand rod like a steelhead line.

Re: What have you been tying today?

Planettrout, that MOOS VL CRUNCHA is a gorgeous pattern. Would you mind listing the materials? What a fishy looking soft hackle!

Re: Opinions on SLF Prism dubbing

I use it a lot, especially the Peacock Prism SLF. That particular dubbing on the thorax of a silver spider with black hackle has caught me an amazing number of trout. (Wotton's "Black & Silver...

Re: How did you get interested in Tying?

My best friend showed me how to tie a red rock worm when I picked up fly fishing in Wyoming on the North Platte. I didn't take up tying regularly until I fell in love with wet fly fishing. To fish...

Re: Frank Sawyer's Killer Bug and Chadwick-477

Moucheur2003, the Scotty's Rare Steak looks ready for a prime lie in the river.

When my order of Berroco UAF comes in, I will (try to) tie one up just as pretty, and also see if I can separate...

Re: What have you been tying today?

Planettrout, That wobble right caddis is one of the best and most piscatorially promising soft hackle ties I have ever seen! I love the elegant use of darker back and lighter ventral surface...

Re: Can a permanent marker serve as a sub for dyeing hackle? (Maybe a dumb question,

Thank you all, especially silver creek.. I will be investing in art markers! Silver creek, those great photo examples with the hoppers in different color schemes make the point convincingly.

Re: Can a permanent marker serve as a sub for dyeing hackle? (Maybe a dumb question,

Thank you for the advice. If the permanent marker can work temporarily, I can use it to try a pattern. If it catches well, I'll use Veniards, RIT or KoolAid and the dyeing threads here to dye some...

Can a permanent marker serve as a sub for dyeing hackle? (Maybe a dumb question, but

In a thread which showed dc410's attractive tie of a Leisenring Black Gnat, a brief mention was made of trying a permanent marker to color hackle.

Does that work?

I would like to tie a...

Re: Frank Sawyer's Killer Bug and Chadwick-477

Moucheur2003 those look great. I'm betting they live up to the name killer bugs.

Flytire, with all respect I disagree. I think the tiny variegations from thin inner strands lend an impression...

Re: Soft Hackle hook

Kamasan hooks like the B175. Heavy wire that stands up to Wyoming rainbows and Great Lakes steelhead, great hookup rate, classic proportions for a wet fly hook

Re: Silver Creeks UV Products

UV resin can add accents to old school flies. I use CCG to add a tail spot to a spider. The hackle is tied in with the stem of the feather along the hook shank. A permanent marker is used to color...
