    When the fly is done, there will be a small piece of the tube protruding in the rear of the fly under the materials. Press a piece of slightly larger diameter soft tube over this as an extension. This extension serves as a guide for the hook. When the hook is attached it will be drawn into the soft tube and sit fairly tight there.

    I don't understand step 34. Never have tied a tube fly before.

    I like to tie flies all sizes and all kinds. I like the Prop Popper A Floater. I would like to have the tying pattern on this fly. Thank You Carl

    Alex,

    Thanks for your kind comment!
    This picture was shot with a Provia 100 and scanned in color, then converted to B/W.
    Some of the other pics are digital, taken with a Nikon D70 SLR or a Canon PowerShot 80 point-and-shoot.

    Comment on number 9. A better cast using a heavy fly or bead head fly is the Belgium cast, i.e., a sidearm back cast coming into an overhead forward cast. Imagine drawing a capital letter "D" in the air. You don't get great distance but it sure saves the rod damage!

    Does Mr. Boyd continue to use Shell Epon for gluing his rod strips? Anything new regarding the Versamid choices?
    Thank you.

    I like the power illustrated by using B&W in general.The picture becomes more real! Want brand of film do you use and the ISO rate. Photography is a hobby of mine,but due to lack the lack of knowledge in taking b&w I use Velvia (slide) most of the time.
    They are all great pictures!
    Thanks
