Re: Anyone feel like fishing tomorrow?

I'd love to, too. I can often play hooky, but I generally plan a little further out.

Re: UV Minnow Belly

Thanks for the suggestions. I was wondering about any REAL difference between a simple Zebra Midge Emerger and the UV Midge Emerger.

Two other things:

1) Is there some substantial difference...

UV Minnow Belly

I want to tie a UV Midge Emerger (Devan Ence's pattern). It calls for UV Minnow Belly. It seems that none of my local shops have it, and I'd rather stay local than buy online. Does anyone have a...

Re: Keeping track of leaders

Thanks all! Some great suggestions. I generally keep the little bags they came in, but if I buy a bag of 3, I'm not so keen on putting a used leader back in the original bags (since it will no...

Keeping track of leaders

Hi,

Does anyone have a system for keeping track of leaders. For example, I may go from a better body of water that may call for a 5X 9' leader to one that requires a 4X 7-1/2'. So I take off the...

Stockard Vices?

Hi,

Has anyone had any experience with the vices that Stockard sells? The prices are so low! I can't find anything in the forums ("Stockard" or "JS" will appear, but not anything I can find...

Re: Denver Rivers

Too many possibilities! S. Platte. Clear Creek. Big Thompson may be interesting by then. Poudre River. A lot depends on how far you're willing to drive and how many anglers you want to share the...

Re: What have you been tying today?

Thanks for the tip. I've not done that before. I'm still learning all of the wonders of Tapatalk (as well as using the Forum site itself -- wondering if they're tied at all -- i.e., if "Mark Forum...

Re: What have you been tying today?

New to post here.... Don't have a good camera setup, 'cause I'd love feedback.

But the last couple of days I've been learning Copper Johns. Tying larger ones; working my way down the line.

Re: New at UV

An update. I ordered some epoxy from SilverCreek, and finagled a UV light from a friend. Tied my first two Copper Johns this evening. Learning experience! But the easiest part was the epoxy. ...

Re: Tying Tip from Eye Doc.

Saw Charlie Craven at the Fly Fishing Show last weekend. He tied with NO magnification or glasses. I thought: just wait! (On the other hand, he's an awesome tier!)

Re: New at UV

Flytire,

Thanks for the pointer.

I did a simple search on the Forum's search box for "UV". Didn't get any fancier than that.

Re: Tying Tip from Eye Doc.

I wear contact lenses that correct my vision to 20/20. I also wear reading glasses (I'm old) at +2.5. When I tie, I put on a baseball cap with some flip-down +3 magnifiers (they're what I wear on...

New at UV

All,

I DID try a search on "UV", but the search feature said it was "too common, too short, too long, too ambiguous" etc.

I'm at the stage in Craven's book where I want to try my hand at Copper...

Biots, blast 'em

I'm a pretty new Tyer(?), and have been working on Prince Nymphs (following Craven). Working with the biots at both ends of the flies is making me crazy! Gripping them so their "curl" faces the...

Re: Keeping a tying journal?

Stryker,

Thanks for the Evernote suggestion. I use it for other things (including fishing), but I hadn't thought about this possibility!

Re: Keeping a tying journal?

Stimmy,

Just re-noticing this thread I started! I'm "old school" in a lot of ways (I LOVE 3x5 cards), so your experience was valuable for me to read. Thanks!

Sorry you lost the box!
