    Not sure, off-hand, of the title of the somewhat recent thread where this was discussed, but many believe the winged wets were tied to represent a "drowned insect". Wets, sans wings, are tied to...

    I knew Dave Scadden when he was part of the sales staff in a sports shop in Riverdale, UT.
    He built a fly rod for me back then. I think it was in about 85-86.

    Reading these posts makes me realize how lucky we are, today, given all the choices.
    When I started tying, we used either #6 or #8 (for really small flies). LOL

    We are really spoiled today,...

    Marco,
    When I lived on the Mainland, I belonged to the local fly fishing clubs. The clubs were great, and had a nominal membership fee to help defray costs.

    Thanks, Steven. Zelon is pretty good about staying "dry". I think that's why Craig now employs it in his "improved Sparkle Dun".
    At least my experience. If wet, a few false casts and it's OK...

    Quite timely. I just got an email from Winston Rods about their new light "Microspey Rods". These rods are in the 3,4,5 weight range and for use on streams which require really long casts to reach...

    Ray,
    I guess I didn't know about becoming "A Friend of FAOL". The link is on the home page.
    I asked the Admin. To put a paypal option there and as soon as that happens, I will donate $25 to become...

    Tig,
    There are quite a lot of "delta wing" patterns around.
    I think Gary Borger's "yarn wing dun" pattern may well be the most imitative of the natural. There is, however, a large school of...

    Marco,
    I re-read your post and Warren's. Please explain how he missed your point entirely.

    Warren,
    I'm with you!
    Nobody should be expected to maintain a great site like this without at least breaking even. Given all their time, they should actually draw a stipend!

    If you want to really go back in time, you could get bamboo. But, bamboo is heavy.
    Do you really want to go back before air conditioning and all the other modern conviencences we have these days?
