    I guess I don't understand the "no cement on dries, cement on nymphs and wets, etc.". Why not on dries? Don't say it adds extra weight. A mini drop of cement won't sink your dry flies.

    What a shame if, say, an L.L. Bean rod would test pretty high for the cost, but is left out because it's only available from Bean. Yet, they fall all over themselves for a Fenwick rod that I can...

    Byron, I love this style. Paraloop or hackle stacker- call it what you want- it's fun to tie, and sure catches trout.

    Scott, the lead wing coachman is my favorite searching winged wet. Trout seem to like chomping on it, so onto my leader it goes. Thanks for the fine (as usual) SBS.

    Lovely work! I love winged wets, but don't tie them enough. Methinks I'll be tying more this winter.

    Ray, if you've seen pics of Don Gapen's original tie, you know that the head wasn't a big ball of spun deer hair. It looked to me to be more like an enlarged version of an elk hair caddis head- just...

    A factor here could also involve the type(s) of fishing one does. The Far and Fine, for example, was/is a wonderful rod for close to moderate distance trout fishing. Sorry Orvis decided to drop it....

    I love this fly. I've fished it for years in the olive version, and trout have been very happy to munch it.

    The original tie for the Maine Gray Ghost used cheek feathers that were cemented as a unit to aid in production tying. If ol' Carrie could do it and not get pilloried, I think you're O.K., Ray!

    Hi, Bruce. They are used for the wings on the traditional version of a Gray Fox. But why not post this question on the Tying Board? Might have more success.

    I've fished the 7 1/2' 3-wt. Three Forks as my go-to small stream rod for years. I prefer a 4-wt. line for casts up to 30 feet, but it's a terrific rod. A good while back I tried to get a blank from...
