    Hi Dorian,

    That is a good tip from Joni. I like the no-slip mono knot better than the surgeons loop. I find it harder to get a small loop with the surgeons loop but that may just be me.

    Frank you make a really good point and one that is of concern to allot. The smaller the loop the better.
    While I did have a camera on what I was doing, it really needed to be behind me on the knot. The trick is, make a loop as small as you can but still feed the fly through twice. NOW, stick the eye of the hook in the loop and slowly tighten. You can get the tiniest of loops this way and it is easy. I actually learned this which freezing my fingers off a long time ago. It helped to steady my hands.
    Dorian was great....and very good looking, but that is a girl thing and I am old enough to be his........big sister ;-)
    Mr. Henry's Lake himself, Bill Schiess stayed the who show and mention it would be in the Idaho Register, so being the egotist I am, let me know LOL
    We went to a close lake yesterday after seeing how cold, dark and gloomy it was. Got out on GLASS SMOOTH water and no breeze. Sweatshirt weather all day...AWESOME.
    Landed about 15 in the 16 to 20 inch range from 5' of water and missed about 20 (Right at the tip of my toon...DANG-IT!)
    Home now so I will get on those samples for you "D". Picked up some killer NEW tying material from Jimmy.

    Here:

    The Flydesk: Slip Strike Indicators

    Best time to get a hold of Dennis Brakke is Saturdays and Monday evening. He is having a battle with his health right now so keep trying.
    If you just can't get a hold of him contact me and I can get them for you.

    I love the way they change the name to make them more glamorous. It's like when a used car was called a used car but now it's classified as a previously owned vehicle. Give me a break!
    Don't let the looks fool you, they work the same as a BIG DRY FLY or those YARN THINGs, except these can adapt to todays needs ;-)
