Re: I just like hairwings

lol, yup, that mylar is a wonder drug! (private joke, guys). Favorite hook is Gamakatsu T10-6H. Strong, nice lines, nickel finish.

Glad you guys like the flies!

Leigh H. Perkins, Sr., who bought the Orvis Co. back in the mid-'60's, always had one mantra for his employees: the customer is always right...no matter how wrong he may be."

Re: Orvis CFO Reels worth the money?

Like S&S, I bought my English-made CFO III in the late '70's. It was then, and is now, the only reel I'll ever need for 4, and even 5 wt. lines.

Re: Older Orvis flyrod question?

Re: Questions from Albany NY

Here's a thought: Save up your pennies, and book a day with Rachel Finn at the Hungry Trout on the Ausable in Wilmington, NY. She'll start you out right AND get you into fish.

Re: Popular flies you don't like?

I'm sure the most-used fly on the Miramichi is the Green Machine. Never used it, never will.
