    Re: "Competition" Jig Hooks Eye Direction?

    The Hends as TristianSutton mentioned. However, I don't consider that style of eye as traditional, since it's a jig hook. Perhaps on a "fly" hook it might be.

    I use jigs hooks like both, primarily larger sizes for molding jigs, and as far as fishing them, have never seen any difference. Some folks may tell you otherwise, stuff about leverages & such, and...

    I fished wet flies or nymphs more often for panfish when I was younger, and really because I wanted to tie different types of flies. These would be flies that I had seen in magazines & catalogs, so...

    Re: Do you have a fly rod problem?

    Ard, I didn't take anything that you said as being cynical. In fact I agreed with you, most of the fly rods I own were purchased on impulse so no need to apologize for anything! I do have a few that...

    Re: Do you have a fly rod problem?

    Yes, it was an impulse! I think I have 15 or 16 rods now. From 3 wt to 10 wt, and a couple of 4, 8 & 9 wts. Hard to pass up a deal! :D

    I don't own a 5 wt unless I count a 4/5 wt or 5/6 wt that I...

    Re: Jig bunny streamers

    I tie both jigs & flies with rabbit & other fur strips and prefer for no other reason, to have the fur up, regardless of the hook point position. IMO, it looks best that way, but as far as catching...

    Re: Soft hackle flies

    These are a little over dressed for soft hackles, but they worked well and are not difficult to tie. I used them for trout & other fish. The body is rabbit dubbing, and the tails are fluff from dyed...

    Re: Soft hackle flies

    Great advice already given! :worthy:

  18. Re: Strongest tying thread against fish teeth?

    I'll assume that by F-fly you are referring to a floating fly. Kevlar thread is likely the toughest type, but may also be the heavier material, so do you add durability & sacrifice buoyancy? It's...
