    Interesting tip AlanB. Pretty much have to always dub similar/same diameter dubbing "noodle".

    Have you noticed the method Davie McPhail has switched to?

    Steven,
    Not sure why that happens. Is there a way to edit a post title??

    As to how nice Arrick is, I was in his shop a year ago and he was opening a big box from Whiting. His order of necks and...

    AlanB,
    That last method of " collaring" is the third method I tried to explain above.

    The reason he starts the thread as he does is not to save thread, but to save time in production tying. No...

    One is to clean the fluff from the stem and tie it in at the stem and wrap like any feather.

    Another is to strip the fibers off the tip, tie it in at the bare tip and then wrap using the stem.

    Yes, Ed. He ties a lot of his flies.
    First clue is how he applies thread to the hook. No scissors or breaking the thread. Always applies thread close to the hook shank, etc., etc. Single cuts...

    As I said, I haven't made up my mind on this concept yet. I'm not talking about the "super realistic" nymph patterns v. "In the round", just ones with a simple wing case.....similar to those in...

    I have two of Brooks' books. Really like his writing. I have not made up my mind about his concept of "tying in the round", but, just to play devil 's advocate, other than reducing the time of...

    My reason is probably the opposite of NJ.
    I like the floatation of elk over deer hair. But, I don't care for the somewhat extreme flaring of elk hair.
    I like the deer hair which is less flaring...

    NJ,
    Funny, but I prefer not to use comparadun hair for caddis patterns.
    I use comparadun deer hair on Sparkle Duns because it flares so easy/well/completely. To get a caddis sillouhette, I try to...
