    Might I suggest you try contacting a few manufacturers and inquire about 'seconds' or any 'demos' available. You may not have any luck, but hey, it's just a phone call. One in this area you might try...

    Looking for Jimmy Ternent

    If you happen to be lurking and see this I hope you will contact me. It's about the box of yarn you sent me back in January of '07.

    Thanks.

    Gene,

    First, several years ago I was sent about 10 yards each of a dozen different colors of the yarn GLF used. I think they are still in the shipping box and if I have it, I hope the senders name...

    Well, FWIW, here's some updated information about the 'DAZZLE - AIRE' yarn we're talking about. Apparently there's a new version that has a different chemical make-up. Anyway, here's information...

    For 99% of my flies, shiny side face forward. Where I don't is when tying a Neversink Skater where 1 hackle has dull side facing forward and 1 is shiny face forward. Then push together. Another is...

    I'm not sure if I read it in a GLF book or in one of his videos but I know he mentioned Dazzle-Aire as a material for his 'sparkle' patterns. The way he used the material was to cut it up into 1/4"...

    Hi Warren,

    Well, I looked up and read what you suggested. Then I read a few other sources describing 'parachute cord'. The other sources state that the inner core of military quality parachute...

    Scott,

    I wasn't paying attention and missed that the fly had a shuck. Just to let you know that, when I tie from the front to back and use a rib from back to front, the taper is easily gotten and...

    Warren,

    Thanks for that but my question goes unanswered: does anyone know for sure what the material is that's inside parachute 550 cord?

    Scott,

    Your typically well tied fly pattern. I have a question for you and maybe you've tried this and not been satisfied? Why not tie in the wire, bring thread toward the thorax, tie in the...

    Thanks. I have some synthetics like HiViz and a lot of Poly yarns as well as natural seal fur and the very short hairs/furs of polar bear. So I was just wondering. Oh, the first time I...

    Completely agree. If you tie something in and it pulls out, falls out, breaks off, doesn't look right and you need to redo something, then you should back off the wraps of thread. Unless of...
