    Jim Slattery sure does have a nice selection of hackle. Reminds me that I really need to stop by one day. Almost a good enough excuse to go to MT by itself. In the meantime, you can of course...

    Absolutely, and I use them for emergers too. Both goose and turkey, depending on the size of the fly and the desired effect. Of course, more often than not, thread would work just as well, I...

    What's wrong with a perch colored unweighted woolly bugger? You can tie it articulated to get the length you want. Zonker strip flies like ScottP suggested are very popular too, just a pain to...

    Hard to believe that it is already time to start planning for this hatch. That is a heck of a pattern, and tie, Scott. Must float like a cork. Never heard to that pattern before, but would make a...

    Personally, I'd just use the same hook as you would for bass, just in a smaller size. No reason why you would have to change hook styles altogether. What hook were you planning on using for bass? ...

    Nice shot. Curious if the tides played a role in the action when you were there? I have fished the same beach later in the season, and they were definitely a factor then, but the pinks had already...

    30 fish a fly seems reasonable to me. Judicious use of superglue might have helped but would not be worth the effort to me.

    Nice tie, Scott. There's a variant I like, that you may too, which uses palmered marabou for the thorax/abdomen instead of palmered rabbit. Adds a nice bit of action and cuts down on the amount of...

    As I said, it will appeal to those who feel "brand loyalty" like yourself.

    "Light weight"? I hope you are being sarcastic. In the 3/4 these new reels will weigh TWICE as much as a Battenkill...and ironically cost more as well. In fact, just comparing with the Orvis line,...

    On an unrelated note, why would you need that many hot pink mallard flank feathers? Wings?
