    While I understand the pleasure owning quality tools, I also understand the 'disposable' aspect of many items we use in fly tying.

    For me, scissors are solidly in the 'disposable' category.

    I made my own separate bobbin cradle after seeing the one Mr. Best used in his book on production fly tying. One of the best things I ever put together for fly tying.

    Ray,

    For their length, crappie have rather large mouths when opened. Crappie are primarily fish eaters, and they can easily take in prey up to around four inches long, although they tend to...

    Alan,

    Didn't mean it was working for us.

    It's certainly working for the hook makers. If it wasn't, which would mean they were having trouble selling hooks, then they'd change it. Until that...

    I've used both over the years.

    Got a bunch of hide pieces from a taxidermist a decade ago. There was this piece of really light colored deer, still brown, not belly hair, that I started using for...

    Duckster,

    I used to think it had to be vertical.

    Now, since I started playing with multi-articulated flies, I think it doesn't matter as long as the connections are free swinging.

    Bruce,

    What you are using seems fine to me.

    I wouldn't change anything unless it's causing you trouble.

    Sensitivity is critical to my fishing.

    I'm sure that the vast majority of modern graphite rods are amazingly sensitive. Whether or not you 'feel' the...

    I'll let everyone know, and I'll post the methodology as well as the numbers.

    I'm really hoping it's a good, strong knot.

    Testing is the key, though.

    I'm going to have to test the knot myself.

    While it looks easy to tie, and it certainly saves tippet, I'm not going to trust it until it's been tested a bit.

    A good knot should consistently...

    No.

    It really doesn't matter.

    Tie your flies on whichever hook you have that will give you the size and action you want.

    Fly tying isn't a science. Recipes are just guidelines.

    To the original question.

    No.

    I see no need to 'categorize' any fly accurately. A few rough categories are obvious, but anything more requires an unattainable amount of agreement among folks...

    Here's what I do.

    Put the line on the rod.

    Don't worry if it's a size heavier, lighter, odd tapered, or whatever.

    Fish with it.

    If I don't like it, take it back.
