    Yup, used comes with a clip. If yours did not, I'd talk with the vendor. Might be optional now that they have redesigned the jaws. Course you can make one yourself by just going down to the...

    No. His specialty is over-priced and over-engineered tools, and while his CDC is OK, generally I would consider him just another Ronco-esque vendor. YMMV.

    Heavy and over-priced. For midges, would recommend looking at those magnetic fly boxes, such as the ones from Angler's Image (http://www.wapsifly.net/anglers-image-ultra-thin-hook-boxes-2/). They...

    Exceptional tie, and pattern, Scott. Have to admire the fact that it is a #20. I especially like how it solves the problem of the wing on hackle-stackers. Will definitely have to try some.

    Generally speaking, I do not frequent that forum for exactly this reason. It is a very poorly performing site and their attempts at monetizing it has only made it worse.

    So is this a wet or a dry, Scott? First time I've seen hackle and partridge mixed in such a manner, I believe. Guess it could work either way.

    Tend to use the Danville product, which is the same as the Uni-stretch (so similar I suspect rebranding) like ScottP as a floss replacement. Originally bought it just because it was new and once I...

    Melk,

    The 3389 looks a lot like the 3366 with perhaps a bit shorter shank, so would fine for streamers. While there are some conversion charts for the contemporary hooks which are still produced,...

    Odd as it sounds, this is exactly what is supposed to happen, sagefisher. The nail knot merely secures the braided loop and it is the 'Chinese-finger-puzzle' effect that keeps it on, and like a...

    Rarely weight flies except for beads, but when I do it is always lead-free, because when I fish waters where it matters, I do not want to have to guess which are which. Still prefer lead split-shot...

    Because wet flies are mostly out of vogue with today's fly fishers?

    If you dig through the archives, you'll undoubtedly find some references, but if looking at the phenomena more broadly,...

    Sorry, meant to say "wing" and this is a very nice example. I had heard they liked trolling Stimulators in the UK, but had not realized they tied them in a different style than the US version. ...

    Very pretty fly. So this is just a Bumble with a tail? In other words, a trolling fly? Great tie!

    Antron Sparkle Yarn is still available in a lot of colors from www.thebookmailer.com but if you are selling for dramatically less, might be interested.

    Lovely pattern, and a very nice tie, Scott. Thank you for single-handedly keeping the fly tying section alive. Awfully quiet around here if it were not for your tutorials.

    Perhaps. Perhaps the fact that the X-caddis variants ride in the film is their distinguishing characteristic versus the EHC? Impossible to determine definitively.

    A trailing shuck is hardly a distinguishing feature. I believe there are one or two other popular mayfly patterns that have the same features (sic.). Cripples/emergers are not unique to a...
