    I put a double surgeon's loop on both ends and then a loop-to-loop connection for saltwater; seems to work pretty well.

    Agree with Walter and John. If you do the Barns Hole thing (I'm not much of a nymph fisherman, but it is cool), you'll want something heavier. We fished stonefly nymphs, big hare's ears, spaghetti...

    Bruce,

    You open a whole box of Pandoras with a lead-in like that. If it were me and I were tying generic nymphs, I'd make them Hare's Ears (variation) with Indian hen for the tail & legs.

    For flytying, need and want don't necessarily mean the same thing. Unless you're Lee Wulff, who tied flies without vise or bobbin ( http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TwK0gYTzRz4 - go to 16:45), a vise,...

    Alan,

    Very nice fly. Would a dearth of your strain of grayling be a HypoThalamus, and an excess a HyperThalamus?
