    I posted that video over in the ladies section a long time ago. It's a pretty cool video. I thought the ladies might enjoy it.

    That was cool Diver Dan. I was surprised to see that the lady had sacrificed
    her braid. Nothing Hoity-Toity about that lady. She's a fisherwoman
    tried--and--true!

    Here's a video I watched last night, where a guy suggests using a kind of Flashy Embroidery Thread for a Rainbow Trout Fingerling. I thought it was rather cool also. It is a good looking pattern that I intend to tie some kind of a variant for. I think this is what he suggested:

    DMC - Light Effects Embroidery Floss 8.7 Yards
    by DMC at least, this is what was on Amazon. The exact coloring ( because it comes in many colors) to look for is the GEMSTONES color for the Rainbow Trout coloration.

    i am happy to say that i have purchased everything i need to get started ! just waiting on it to arrive by mail. after searching around, plus some offering from fellow fly fisherman, i was able to get some pretty decent tools and materials for about $110 (which normally would have been $250). i already feel like a kid a chrismas time! i want to thank youtube, ebay, fellow members of Fly Fishing Forum, and search engines for contributing to my addiction !!

    Great video Dan, shows what you can do with minimal supplies and a little ingenuity. I think the peacock bass are one of the most beautiful fish and would love some day to fish for them.
