That is fantastic. Looks great!
Hillard - My apologies for not responding sooner. 10 "Shammy Serpents" are winging their way to you and should make the deadline. Thanks for hosting the Pike swap! Alec
Regal appears to have come out with a rotary vise - the Regal Revolution. I called them and they said it'll be available at the end of next month. MSRP with the wooden base is 400 bucks. Ouch. MSRP...
I could use some pike flies and would like to get in on this one - I'll tie a pattern to be determined... thanks - Alec
Dudley - You'd know i if it's the 11 R; it was Herter's rotary vise - very large "true" rotary design. Cheers, Alec
I am interested in hearing from anyone else that owns a Herters Model 11R vise. Cheers, Alec
The Ryobi 255MG magnesium fly reel is perfect for a one weight - very light and a perfect size. They were an inexpensive reel when offered, but are now discontinued. The J. Austin Forbes magnesium...
Our prayers are with you and your family. God bless, Alec

khaki head to toe... the Joe Brooks look... like this old timer:
"Gore Tex? I don't need no stinkin' Gore Tex!!"
If you could see this guys feet you'd...
Hi Mike - That Micky Finn Spinner fly sounds killer. Remember - the English invented the "purist" ethic, and these flies are born in the USA! Tight lines Mike! Alec
Hi Gents - That's my site - thanks for the kind words!
You will find a couple of my flies at the OLD FLIES section here at FAOL. Also check out Eric Austin's renderings of these beautiful flies...
Hi Mark - I am interested in FOX squirrel tails... do you have them or just Grays? Alec

I am interested in hearing from any Christian flyfishers that are interested in joining an online Christian flyfishers Fellowship and forum. Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! Alec
Here, here. I too am a reel luddite. I don't even like rim control. How's 'bout a standard Medalist? They have a closed frame. So do the Hardy lightweights. There are also several classic repro reels...
Mike - My daughter is 5 and ties with me - she has been tying since 3. I place the hooks in the jaws for her and bury the point. No problem. I don't let her use a bodkin and make sure shj's careful...
Osprey and kingfishers will leave wounds too, on "the ones that got away". Alec
Sorry... yes indeed that's foxtail - silver fox. I also use red fox and have tied some with arctic fox as well - all excellent. The body fur is suitable as well, but only for smaller flies since it's...
Here's one tied with Silver Fox. Make sure you keep the underfur in for bulk. It's essentally a deceiver style fly tied with Fox - an excellent natural material with lots of movement in the water and...
Hi Kyle. I live on the Cape and fish alot for stripers. You will want to bring a 9 or 10 weight - I prefer a 9, and a good reel with a disc drag. I fish hard mono leaders, 9', down to 10 or 12 lb....
Hi Guys - I got my flies a couple days ago and man was I impressed. I hit the water this morning and both the Foxee Clouser and the Bully Bug have already brought bass to hand - well done guys!...
I have a pal that fishes a Raddison and it is indeed a fine craft. My only improvment would be to add a yoke thwart to make portaging easier. They are nice otherwise though. Cheers, Alec
