Re: I'm so tired of getting ripped off!

I for one do not want that. Increasing taxes (tariffs) on imports will raise the welfare of domestic producers, but will also increase the cost of domestic products and decrease the welfare of...

Choosing Elk/Deer Hair

I recently bought a pack of bleach elk hair to tie some elk hair caddis. When I got home and started to tie, I noticed that the length of the hair was very uneven. This made it very hard to...

Re: Whip finisher destroying my thread.

TIL that I actually have a Matarelli style whip finisher.

I thought that for it to be a Matarelli it needed to have that special cutter at the bottom.

I also thought about hammering the...

Re: Early season stocked trout in small lakes

I'm not sure if this will work, but I ran across this pattern the other day while watching Tightline videos. The pattern is called CB Stocker.

Re: Last fly i'll ever tie....

I was fooled as well.

Noob question incoming:

What is going on with the hook eye? Is that a special technique?

Re: Peak Rotary Vise- Pedestal Base

I got my Peak from J Stockard as well several months ago. I felt like I made a good investment and I'm really happy with it so far.

Re: 1mm foam

Re: Bobbins and bobbin threaders

This is where I get confused. Dave McPhail said ceramic tube is important for wire, but you say it isn't.

Does he have some kind of agenda to sell more Tiemci bobbins?

Re: Polarizing discussions

I could respond to some posts using certain memes, but I get the feeling that could come off as trolling or snarky to some.

Re: Bobbins and bobbin threaders

Thanks for the info on the Griffin bobbin. I guess that is why they are a bit cheaper than the full ceramic tube style bobbins.

I think I'm going to pick up a Tiemco Ceramic Heavy Duty bobbin. ...

Re: eggs over easy

Not sure if I will be able to do this one yet since I have been tying for about 2 months now.

Hopefully by this time next year I will be able to tie this pattern.

Re: Bobbins and bobbin threaders

What is the brand of bobbin you got, if you don't mind me asking?

Also when you say "full ceramic" does that mean entire tube i ceramic?

I was weary of getting the Griffin one because I...

Re: Recommendation for a Sling Pack?

Does this bag work as a "sling type?" Meaning, can you rotate the bag around so it is out of the way when you are fishing?

Re: Smith Optics vs Costa Del Mar

Based on this thread, I guess I should check out some Costa Del Mars. In the past I looked past them because none of their designs that I saw in stores appealed to me.
