Re: Furled leaders: Are they right for me?

What material is the leader made of that it doesn't sink?

Re: Edjewmacate Me Please as to Winston's....

Re: What have you been tying today?

Nice looking bug, Jack. I like Bruce's naming, The Liberace.

Thank Joe, I've never read anything of Frank Sawyer's...I admit that I didn't even know that he was a writer.

I haven't use Explorer in years. Chrome is so much better, but if you don't want Google to know EVERYTHING about you (I've pretty much resigned to it) Firefox is a good option. IE is overbloated. ...

Re: Pros and cons of soft hackle "feathers"?

Dave Hughes, you can't go wrong. He writes both excellent SBS with great tips and different techniques but also about the actual fishing. He is one of my favorite all-around fishing writers.
