Re: Fly Box Orders, As Of October 1, 2014...

Re: The Catch & Release Report on Hairwing530...

jaybo41,

I'm in full agreement with you, as I've reconciled myself to the fact that the rest of 2014 has played itself out as far as me getting back on the river before the snow flies. So, the...

Re: Inspired by Hairwing.

cochise,

You just amped up my body's determination to heal and be ready for the Spring, 2015 Opener with that report. By visually allowing me to fish beside you-- even with the hike in--you gifted...

silver,

You are spot-on with your assessment. I am a man truly blessed with a great family, friends and fishing "cronies" nearby, and fellow "culprits and partners in crime" geographically...

Re: The Catch & Release Report on Hairwing530...

This morning, I came to the following conclusions...

1. Three days of the hospital version of "bed rest" can make an aging body feel like an engine that's been through a major overhaul. It's going...

Re: Notice on our Friend Jerry aka Hairwing

coastrider,

You can order flies from me whenever you'd like... so long as you don't need them "yesterday." I plan on making good use of my "two hours on(?), two hours off" temporary tying...

Re: The Catch & Release Report on Hairwing530...

Guys,

Your continuing show of support has me in a good place right now, on the mental and emotional side of the equation. I'd be less than honest if I didn't admit to feeling like I'd just go 14...

Re: The Catch & Release Report on Hairwing530...

Mike,

I will check in with the "hairwing530 network of cronies" and get the "real" bottom line on the pending on-rush of silver-sided fish. Fair enough?

Jerry, the worn, weary and extremely...

Re: Tying Desk Necessities

Hey Nearenuf...

A rack of dowel spindles for thread will make a great addition to the desk plans. I'd also add a deep drawer lined with cedar boards that can be lightly sanded from time to time to...

Re: "The Miracle 100+"

Rick,

Re: Need Nymph Hook Suggestions

Nice ties, Kelly... very nice ties! I like the DaiRiki 125 for some flies as well. Lately, I've also added a few of the old Mustad heavy-wire Sheepshead hooks to the mix, especially on the smaller...

Re: In Defense of "Ex-Library" Books...

Re: In Defense of "Ex-Library" Books...

dhaynes,

Fred,

If there is but one inequity to our lives with dogs/cats, it would be the fact that we tend to out-live so many of them. It is perhaps the saddest and most unfair of the realities that we...
