I like this BB because it is not too crowded, it may take a wee while to get a response, but we are fly fishers who are expected to have patience, (that is a laugh) anyway I like a little peace and quiet from the over indulgent egos on some other BBs.

Global indeed. and an open community.
When I was in college, last century, I fished a midland stream in Germany with a friend and we bumped into another guy waving the long stick. He shared which pattern he was catching on and where he took a couple of grayling. Quite nromal behaviour among FFishers which we take for granted. Then after we parted, my friend (bait and spin fisherman) asked whether I knew the other flyfisherman. At that moment it dawned to me that those tying feathers and hairs around hooks are not quite as secretive as other fishermen. I had similar experineces fishing in my and other countries.
I don't think that makes us better or worse, it is just that I prefer dealing that way.

Well Pete,
I have been tying flies for quite a wee while now, and I know well dressed flies when I see them. I can still dress them myself, but my eyes are not good enough now to drive a car, so my fishing opportunities are very limited.
Never mind I can still dress and appreciate flies. I have been using this site for quite a while, because it has great flies.
Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Pete,
impressive work, I almost wrote as ususal.
Concerning matching he hatch, at times a little overrated in my experience, some of the fish we are chasing respond well to a little provocation.

Pete,

I'm also working my way through the LCR's and I'm not quite decided yet. I have yet to try Loon, which was recommended to me by a shopkeeper. It's quite expensive, though. I also ordered some Deer Creek Diamond Hard and will try that soon.

I love the concept, and find the LRC's really easy to work with. Soooo much better than epoxy.

And nice pattern, the slim one. Simple and almost surely efficient.

Martin

Martin...
IMHO... for me, the DH narrow beam death ray was hard master... it was very intense and phocused which caused problems as the acrylic heated up so quickly... more often than not, a puff of smoke would precede a molten bubble deformation... 'easier to work with a broader, less intense, slower to cure UV beam... the end product struck me as a bit brittle...
