    Lookin' good Rick! They look like they might be good for deeper water with the bead-head and wire ribbing. Glad they worked well for you!

    ol' blue,

    I received the package of flies yesterday. Like the other tyers, I'm impressed by the speed of delivery. You must have really hustled to get them into the mail, also.

    I can tie them all; they're mostly made up of saddle hackles, so I have the materials. I'm probably not of the caliber of most of the tyers on this swap, but they should come out pretty well. ;)

    Hard-Hackle Worm flies

    Greg,

    If "H" is still in question, I can tie up a set of "Hard-Hackle Worm" flies (see FOTW archive). I received one from a previous swap, and it's a good warmwater fly.

    Thanks again for...

    Quite right; "lime" does indeed start with an L. :oops:
    Actually, that's good - I just remembered that I saw a British fly called the Viva that I wanted to try out on our local lake. Please put me...

    Hey Rick,

    Like dunfly, I just use a single anchor. I'm often anchoring in water 25-30 feet deep and am also concerned about being swamped. That said, I believe Jim Hatch anchors at both ends of his...

    Re: bass bug casting help

    Hi Mike,

    I can say from experience that catching 2-3# (or greater) bass on your 2wt would be a blast.

    How cool! I'd always read that a woolly worm is an attractor, not an imitator. You just proved otherwise. :)

    Re: whats everyones kayak???

    I fish (a lot) from my Old Town 'Dirigo 106' kayak. I've found it to be easy to transport, comfortable to sit in and stable to cast from. I like it! :)

    Re: How many $600 -$700 rods do you own?

    Another thought: Even though it may cost $600+ for a top of the line graphite rod, one can enjoy using it for a lifetime... Of course - that can also be true for a $50 rod. It's all good! :D

    I have two rods: a ~ 100 Scientific Angler 5wt from their combo, which I really learned to fly-fish with this last couple of years. It's been a great rod.
