    I find that a small horseshoe magnet works as a good material clip for my Regal, but I'm not sure whether the stainless steel jaws will hold a magnet.

    Use it as substitute for snipe -- it's hard to tell a starling and purple from a snipe and purple, for example. And I wouldn't be without a few Stewart's Black Spiders in my box. (The latter is the...

    I don't think you're boring anybody. As I said on another thread, all of his videos are worth watching, and it's interesting to see which ones appeal to various folks.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure as well that Gary L. had published on the subject, but Wright's 1972 book, Fishing the Dry Fly as a Living Insect, really brought the subject into the foreground.

    I find it hard to even believe that Leonard Wright would have allowed that in the book, given that he's probably best remembered for advocating giving his Fluttering Caddis a "sudden inch" of...

    In the fly fishing appendix to the Compleat Angler, Sir Charles Cotton warned against buying flies as opposed to tying them; the London merchants sold flies that were overdressed to attract...

    I don't find it odd at all. Orvis is a business, and sells only what people have been programmed to want -- not necessarily what catches fish.

    In 1999 or thereabouts, I was shocked to notice that...

    At 12, I was tying flies that caught fish, but they certainly weren't in the same class as that kid's.

    And fifty-one years later, they still aren't.

    The chief reason that low water make fishing more difficult is that fish are more skittish in skinny water. They're much more vulnerable to predation from above (mainly in the form of birds) and it...

    He may be lost, but I don't think it's a trico. Tricos have three tails, and a body that only extends to just past the trailing edge of the wing.

    The magazine has always been way too focused on the West for my taste. There's usually not much of interest for an East Coast angler. Otherwise, it's well done.
