    It's not clear to me whether all of your questions have been answered.

    I think you must be right, I never looked at the kit, although it did come up in a google search. :)

    Clouser Floating Minnow

    Normally, you can find instructions on how to tie just about any fly somewhere on the internet.

    I haven't been able to locate instructions for the Clouser Floating Minnow any where. The thing I'm...

    Here's a youtube video that demonstrates rotary tying.

    An experienced fly tier once told me that he ties all the same flies in any given session and throws away the first six.

    I don't quite do that. But it takes a few flies to get the proportions...

    Let's hope it's not VHS. However, I grew up in NE Oklahoma and did a lot of crappie fishing in the 1950's. I remember catching farm pond crappie with red mouths back then. I think VHS arrived in...

    That web site has a lot of interesting materials. Even though I'm definitely not a realistic tier.

    I do see that on the J. Stockard web site. It didn't show up on a google search. Thin Skin might be the identical material, I just don't know.

    I'm asking partly because scud back doesn't really achieve the desired effect in my mind.

    U.S. Source for Flexibody?

    One of the recent Fly Tyer magazines has an Oliver Edwards article on tying small stoneflies that uses Flexibody. I don't think there is a U.S. source for that material, as a google search failed to...

    The Dave Whitlock Tool

    That is what I was calling the "Dave Whitlock Tool". It's what I thought it was called. The Dave Whitlock formula might call for 5x tippet.

    Bass Bug Legs

    When tying deer hair bass bugs, I've been tying in the legs with some figure 8 wraps, and then continuing to spin deer hair.

    One alternative is to use a Dave Whitlock type tool to pull the legs...

    Re: Fishing 'when you can'.

    I go fishing when I can, but I try to take advantage of the seasons, and I really like variety. It's all fun.

    The problem is that the best seasons for nearly everything are May and June.
  17. Re: Any ideas what this fish is (photos included)

    Regarding fallfish, I think the NJ state record is something like 1lb 10oz. I've caught them to 12 or 14 inches in the upper Delaware on wooly buggers.

    They are interesting in that they build...
  18. Re: Any ideas what this fish is (photos included)

    That looks somewhat like a fallfish, but I think it's something else. Fallfish are native to the East Coast, and I've caught them from New Jersey north into Maine.

    I'm a little surprised that...
  19. Re: Will a 7wt large arbor reel do well on an 8 rod?

    The Teton reels (including the Tioga) have a patented drag system based on neoprene discs. I have two of those reels (and 8 and a 6), but I can't truly say that the drags have been tested. Other...

    Re: Info

    Equipment-wise, I think those are great recommendations.

    Just as important as the rod and reel is a good stripping basket. You can make one. Do an internet search for instructions on how to...

    Re: Rock Bass

    Among the salt water flyrodders I know, a spinning rod is known as the "devil stick"! But every last one has a "devil stick" in their trunk for those days when it's just too windy -- including me. :)

    I think getting skunked is just something that goes with salt water fishing. There's a lot of water out there, and it's hard to find fish -- unless you're got a boat with electronics, and on a radio...

    Re: shooting head info wanted

    If you're distance casting with a sinking line, you might try using a short, stiff leader. I find that helps in turning over flies. In fact, I've been using about 5' of straight flourocarbon as a...
