    I just started using this knot and really like the ease of tying especially late in the evening. It ties light tippet without the curl that I sometimes got with the clinch knot.

    First heard about it in Ohio, also about 5 years ago. I don't know how big of a problem it is here, but I remember reading an OH Dept of Ag flyer about invasive species to be on the lookout.

    Montana's access law is still one of the best in the country. I suppose there are places on rivers all through Montana where it is tough to stay below the high water mark. That's just the way it goes...

    Scott , thanks for the step by step, and inspiring me to try my hand at them for steelhead. Is there any particular reason you reverse wrap the tinsel ribbing on the Coal car and not the signal light?

    I am guessing it's a brown trout, and have seen quite a few with the white and dark (not really black) edging on the fins. I think the distortion from the water ripples makes it look sort of like a...

    I use EP fibers, but I had heard that Congo hair was the same and much cheaper. A hank of EP fibers will probably last ten years of tying. It floats nice for the sparse hackled low profile flies and...

    Are the really big puffballs going to be edible or is it only the small ones? I noticed just the other day three puffballs about the size of small soccer balls growing along the roadside.

    I don't have any suggestion on how to straighten the hackle but if you use those hackles to tie thorax duns where you crisscross the hackle under the shank I think you will find them useful.
