    I don't know if I'd call myself proficient from my other side (right side4, in my case), but I do switch hands from time to time on the stream, It's partly to give my left hand and arm a rest, but it...

    That 3-weight (with a 4-weight line) is my go-to creek rod. Hope they never stop making it. May try the 4-weight, if NJTB likes his so much.

    Yeah, you probably would. With that many bugs on the water, your fly would just disappear. But who knows? I'd give it a try.

    Yes there are, but I suspect we often overthink the idea of closely matching only the fauna of a particular body of water. Perhaps a trout chomps on a fly just because it looks alive and, as been...

    "The diameter of the tip of a 5 wt fly line should be about .022"

    Silver, maybe it's because I haven't bought a 5-wt. line in a few years, but I've never had one mic nearly that small. They all...

    Scott, I assume you don't wrap the foam body too tightly. That would collapse the wee air cells in it, right? Did I just say "wee"? Been watching a lot of Davey McPhail, I guess.

    Ray, it's not illegal to copy to DVD if it's for your own personal use. Commercial use, no. personal use, yes. And I'm sure A.K. would rather be seen on a DVD copy than stuffed in a drawer on a VHS...

    Uncle Jesse, they're thin lead sheets from the x-ray films that go into your mouth. Pure lead, and thin. Can be cut with scissors, then wrapped onto the hook.

    The reason Gary used the packing foam was for its transluscency, as Joe Billingsley indicated. He felt that that quality was the trigger for the fly. If so, I think the craft foam would be easier to...

    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.

    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.
