    Being able to see what your doing makes a huge difference, I use the jeweler type magnifiers that you can flip up and down.

    ya fysh I was gonna get basic reading glasses cause my uncle let me try um on for a sec but then I seen this and had to get it. but I did move it sometimes when I had to and then used it when I am tying stuff in and all that. I had to get something cause I would tie like 3 flies and get real dizzy. had to be strain of the eyes. **** I got contacts as is lol. the glasses you got sound like they would work great too. another thing I think that made it look great was that I used regular hares mask instead of the nymph natural dubbing dispenser I got. that stuff seems synthetic or something

    I see that, guard hairs make a nymph nice and buggy looking.

    Do you tie with Angora Goat hair much yet? Also makes fantastic looking nymphs and wet flies.

    the magnification didn't hurt me. it was before I had it that bothered me when I tried to stare at a size 14 hook for 30 + min lol. . I am just using a regular light bulb thats built into the mag glass but not sure of the watts. the mag glass just plugs into the wall with a cord. before I had no light but the one built in the ceiling haha. I used the guard hairs for the tail and the short underfur I pulled off it for the body dubbing. I have tried the angora for sucker spawns. but not nymph bodies. I only got white. but gander mountain . those punks never got the good colors of anything tho!!! lol... they got every color but the ones u need it seems so I got to get everything online. ohio isn't a big fly fishing place to have fly shops all around I guess

    Take a look here for Angora Goat. www.flyfishstillwaters.com - Fly Fishing Stillwaters
    Great tying materials.
    Denny Rickards is a class act and catches some HUGE fish, you should check out his videos and DVD's.
