Thanks for the tips Adrian!
Thanks for the nymphing advice.
My friends weren't around during the light of day but in the evening when I went back they took a liking to a knotted midge fished in the foam.

When sight nymphing in bright sun & low water do you guys & gals use bead head nymphs or non bead heads with shot on the line instead?
Not sure if the gold bead heads...
Well said Riffle.
Nice job Cam & Dad!
To quote the A-Team: gotta love it when a plan comes together! :)
Gonna work on something this weekend. I'm thinking a black foam body, fire red thread head to represent eyes, orange mallard flank on each side for wings with a few strands of flash for an underwing....
Thanks guys, I'll let you know how it works on Sunday.
Those Touch rods are really nice.
I'm a full flex fan myself.
Came up with this one at the vise last night.
First time I've worked with Enrico Puglisi 3D Fibers. Great stuff.
The color of the fiber I used is called "Backcountry", hence the name of the...

For the record, I'm a big fan of the Catskill.
I don't have any 2 weights (yet) :) but I do own a Orvis Superfine Trout Bum 6'6" 3wt. Full Flex & a Hardy Glass 6' 3wt. also slow action. Really like both these for tight quarters. The Orvis is now...
Great article by Flyaddict Steve Culton, check it out if you get a chance.
Picture of cover & article, so you know what to look for, on BRK TRT's blog:...
Also, I cut the tips off the back set of deer hair on this one. I liked the look. (Actually, looking at the pic, I missed one of the tips). You can leave them long if you want. I tied some with the...
Horny Muddler seeks sexy water! Sorry, couldn't resist. :)
Tied up a cross between a Hornberg & a Muddler.
Thought it came out pretty good.
Easy to tie as well.

Picking up a copy very soon.
That first fish is the size of my old silver Honda CRV!
PS. Check out the butterflies at the 1:51 mark. They are puddling, saw that happen on my trip to Virginia this summer. Pretty cool to see in...
