Re: Trout Fin Streamers

Those bodies are so smooth. I second the "looks like they were painted on" comment. Great Job :)

Re: Short rod suggestions

Re: Robbie

Very nice fly :)

What did you like about the Japanese floss that separates it from the rayon (I only have rayon)?

What is the wing made out of?

Re: Parson's #1

Eunan,

Thanks for the critique.

You're correct about the strung hackle. I'll give the rooster capes a try. Is there anything I should look for since I'll have to order sight unseen?

What...

Re: Any Black Friday Rod Sales????

Gosh I hope not. I know I'm ONLY paying $31 for the new rod, but it seems like shrink wrap will not be as sturdy as thread.

Re: Any Black Friday Rod Sales????

My go to rod is a Three-Forks 7'6" 3wt. For the price you can't beat it. I just ordered a spare 8'6" 5wt for my son if he wants to join me.

Re: Question: dry flies, wet flies, nymphs or streamers

Our TU chapter is part of Project Healing Waters. We go with Wooly Buggers (i.e streamers) and Nymphs for the disabled vets. I think you have to worry less about drag which is easier with those...
