    Scott,

    Agreed. But, I would think this fly he tied would be used in slow moving or still water and would be effective in those types of water and for finicky fish. Still, tearing off half the...

    Non-Slip Loop Knots

    Everything you read in books or see on videos describing how to tie a non-slip loop knot tells how to close the knot down before you tighten it so it will be a small loop. Does it really matter? I...

    I also prefer the non-waterproof boxes. I purchased a couple of waterproof C&F boxes a couple of years ago and every time I open them the gasket comes out.

    Dave,
    I wrote that post about the Hi-Float fibers. I did everything he recommended about brushing out the fibers with the dog brush. The fibers are extremely soft and easy to work with, they just...

    So.....for tiny (#22-#26) CDC Comparaduns oiler puffs would be great? I find them easier to manipulate in those sizes.
