    I would have handed him a bottle of powerbait. If he was that inflexible, maybe he needs to do rethink his hobby choice.

    I have tied a fair bit on Lazer Trokar hooks, and they are probably the best big game hooks I have used. Some of the Eagle claw laser point hooks aren't bad, but their fly specific hooks are pretty...

    Mustad hooks of the past were not chemically sharpened, and in my opinion, that was their major downfall. The signature series is chemically sharpened, so they are much better than their past...

    I think the Griffin Montana Pro is one of the best beginner vises around because it has the same jaw that the Mongoose has. It's about $75, and that leaves you $25 for a bobbin and scissors.

    I love the look of that bug! The only thing that concerns me about this particular pattern is the extremely heavy hook. Will those materials float it?

    The deer adds a layer of bugginess in my opinion. Also, when you wrap foam like that it can lose some of its buoyancy due to having some of the air squeezed out of it. I'd add deer hair to this bad...
