    I don't own any of his tools. I am sure they are high quality.

    Nice pattern and SBS, but with due respect to Mr. Moss, I'm not sure I like the name. There are a couple of places I fish that every fly turns into a moss magnet.:???:;)

    All that red in the Cascades, from the last couple of years, has turned green and blue. Great news! The ski resorts are happy and the reservoirs will be full this summer.

    The original had the tips curving up. That is how I have always tied them. They started to be produced commercially with the tips curving down and now that's the way most people tie them. It probably...

    If you have the cover in weighing position when you turn it on, it should zero it out or press the Tare button.

    The Harbor Freight scale does not come with a calibration weight. However a nickle weighs 5 grams and can be used to check the accuracy.

    I can't help with a real line weight scale, but small inexpensive electronic scales work pretty well. I picked one up at Harbor Freight for about $10 that will display grains (also grams, ounces).

    I prefer to sort through a string of blood quill marabou and find the feathers with a good amount of fuzz all the way to the tips. That way I get even tips without the stringy look. Unfortunately...

    The Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear is a serviceable Callibaetis nymph imitation.

    Cate's Turkey is a very effective small nymph.

    I dislike combat fishing. My preference would be to not have anyone else in sight, but that's usually not realistic. If there are miles of good water that nobody's fishing, don't set up right next to...

    Reeve's Pheasant is a species of bird, not a particular feather.

    As for preservation, I'd remove any flesh or fat, apply borax to the skin, allow to dry thoroughly and then bag it.

    There is a loop knot that is tied the same way called a King Sling. It's sort of a beefed up figure eight knot.

    The straight dark body hair and the light and dark mixed mane are useful.

    At 12, i was buying flies for $.10 each at the local sporting goods store. At 18 I was tying my own flies. Neither the store bought flies nor the ones I tied at 18 looked nearly as good as this kid's.

    Take a look at some of Charlie Craven's videos. No different than tying right handed. Sometimes he starts the thread a little differently, but it has nothing to do with tying left handed.

    I have been using a silicone grease intended for spinning reels (Garcia I think). It takes so little that I have been using the same small tube for several years.
