    Re: Bread and butter nymph

    You’re right about them hunting game farm birds. The birds I used to shoot in Pa. were all wild and had those big beautiful tails.

    Hi PT,

    I hope you are feeling better after your hospital travails.

    Thanks for sharing this information. I have a couple questions if you would be so kind.

    Where do you get the Spanish CdL...

    G

    My friends who hunt pheasants bring me tail feathers, but the fiber ends are uneven and raggedy. And the fibers are shorter than I need to wrap bodies for some flies so I still end up buying...

    Re: Bread and butter nymph

    I am just tying some variations of the Bread and Butter nymph and tried using the brown olive Ice Dub for the thorax. I like the effect a lot, but I use that color of Ice Dub on a lot of flies. It...

    Re: 2 nymph Tandem Rig

    I think itís just you.

    Seriously, I have had days or weeks like that, but there are all sorts of variables so it may come down to what flies you choose to fish in what position.

  7. Re: Boot Studs - Aluminum vs all others....

    That’s good news. I didn’t see that on your web site last time I visited, but maybe I just missed it.

    I will proceed from here.

    Thanks again,

    Having used aluminum rivets with felt in the past, I definitely agree that they offer much better traction while wading than regular studs. I have been mightily tempted by the Rock Treads posts I...
  9. Re: So how long does a dry fly leader really need to be?

    It varies all over the place. Years ago in Pennsylvania using a 6 foot Fenwick rod I used leaders as short as 6 foot and as long as 12 or even longer.

    When I took Joe Humphreys class at Penn State...

    The photo in the first post shows a thorax made of dark hareís ear dubbing, which is a fairly standard way to tie that nymph. The version featured on Troutbitten uses bronze peacock dubbing for the...
  12. Re: Straightening out a squashed rod guide?

    I have the same concern as S&S. It seems so minor a repair to have either the maker or an amateur rod builder take the damaged guide off and replace it with a new one that I wouldn’t play around with...

    Re: Tactical chest pack, anyone?

    I’m glad it is working for you. I think it holds every bit as much as a vest even without the back pack. I mostly use it with just the back panel. I have the day pack, but mostly use it with the...

    Re: UV Resins

    Thus far I have avoided using or buying the resins. That’s partially because I don’t know what to buy, but also because I figure I am likely to make a mess. Basically I use head cement and that’s it....

    If it is the same management then they may allow the lease to be transferred. Worth asking, but make sure that your pooch is allowed.

    There may be a waiting list for Laramie since they have fewer...
