  1. That's it, blame the origin countries, for mismanagement of the species. We wouldn't have our mighty Bow Browns and Athabasca Rainbows without Alleman. Ever went fishing in Austria..>>? Just saying... -M.
  2. BigFoamy, I didn't object to this photo, because you obviously know what you're doing. It does seem, however, that the upper green fly is hooked into the fish, by the rear fin, if you look quickly. I haven't looked at the photo up close, but it kinda looks that way. *...Upon further inspection, it's clearly above the fish...* Maybe that's why someone had a knee-jerk reaction to a fish in super-clear water. Weird. -M.

    Thanks Bron and BurningChrome. I do use a lead-free wire (!) if available, otherwise a lead wire. Learned about the wire push into the conehead from a veteran online gentleman who posts almost every week. Thankfully, my conehead hasn't migrated too far into the shank, just a thing to have a loose conehead after tying...you know how it goes. Cheers! -M.

    I do need your advice, Bron. Securing a conehead is fun..but one might take that last bit of wrap and maybe make it, or waste some over-tying Zonkers. Any tips on securing a conehead when just a bit short would be appreciated.. if it's convenient. -M.

    A signature floppy...? Who cares... just a variation. :roll eyes: -M.

    Another one tonight, I like how the Squirrel and tail markings turned out on this one. Maybe I'm learning something. -M.

    My first take on a double-tail Olive/Chartreuse Slumpbuster, #6 700B Dai-Riki, with the bent shank. -M.

    ...And went for a bigger tie...my first #8 hook ever, with a weighted Purple Leech thing...copied from a store-bought from last year. -M.

    Few #18 Midges and Scuds too.... -M.

    Wow. Well Done BigFoamy... love the articulated platform! -M.

    Tried for a few of these #16-#18 Chironomids, with a red butt and a bit of flash. Found the Krystal Flash collected a lot of river muck, but got a few with this one, even when the water started to rise. -M.

    Ok this is getting Bananas f**ked up... I'd never heard the term..I was flailing around a bit..trying my best. Why say anything...? Just let us dedicated Amatuers get to learning about our blessed sport. -M.

    I cast for the current, for safety and for my ability. Haven't tried 'Full Spey' casting yet, just getting my feet wet (as a Hydrophobe) with a 10'8" Switch Glassy.... -M.
