I’m still getting sign ups and questions (“Is tomorrow’s class still on?” Yes. “Is this a pre-pay event?” Yes. $10.) about tomorrow’s tying class, Tying Winged and Wingless Wet Flies. There’s still room if you want to join in: tomorrow, Saturday, January 30, 1pm. You can literally sign up for it any time before then (but I’d appreciate it if you’d do it sooner rather than later). Here are the details.
A hunk-hunka burning love of wet fly goodness awaits.
Steve, Do you have a source for bronze peacock herl? I have yet to find any. I’ve tried putting herl in the sun, but it didn’t change color. Thanks, Greg Sent from AT&T Yahoo Mail on Android
Greg, I don’t, and to be honest with you I just use what I have on hand that tickles my fancy. I doubt the trout care if it’s got a copper or bronze or some other cast in a split-second feeding decision. As someone who presents with red-green color blindness, I generally make do with what looks best to me, which is often “wrong” by the book. 🙂
Hey “Fisherman” I’ve noticed your not talking small streams lately. Have you given up on them?
Untrue, good sir! See link below from earlier this month. The reality is that I left them alone this summer through fall to allow for drought stress recovery and spawning. This month has seen my fishing attentions focused on the Farmington. Give up on small streams? Never! 🙂
