    Couldn't agree more, Byron. I've been in the golf business for many years and have attended a number of PGA conventions. IF a bigger named golfer would show up at them you might get a "Hello" from a...

    Czech Nymph

    I know that "Czech Nymphing" is a technique or style of nymphing, but whenever I see a fly called a "Czech Nymph" it is always the same type of fly - grub-style and heavily weighted. Are all "Czech...

    What was the dubbing that you used? Did I miss the description? It could double as a crane fly larva, too, couldn't it?

    Nice tie, Alan. I'm confused about where the foam is in relation to the poly yarn hackle, though. Do you split it and tie it around the "post" before you spread the poly yarn? I can't tell. It...

    I've had a custom made 7'-6" GL3 in a three-weight for a number of years (actually I broke the tip off a long time ago and it's only 7'-3" now) and it is hands-down my favorite rod ever.

    Czech Nymphing for Spooky Fish?

    I have a rudimentary knowledge of the technique of Czech Nymphing. Can it still be effective going after spooky fish in ultra clear water or will standing so close to them run them out of the area?

    Nice, Scott. When you make the band on the deer hair for the hackle, do you start by tying down the hair at the point away from the eye and work the thread forward, or start at the eye and work back?...

    If somebody refers to the term "Para Post" to identify a product, I would tend to believe they are referring to the specific Hareline product of that name.
