Steve - one of the guys I work with was in your shop last week and gave me some chick-a-bou for your emerger. That stuff is so good even dumb Nebraska trout are in awe.

Steve! I think the materials for the Tabou Caddis Emerger need clarification. I can't find the colors you have listed. Also, is the chick-a-bou and soft hackle 2 different purchases? Thanks

Steve, Thanks for sharing your hard work in leader calc. I am an engineer and it seems as if I am going to be plagued with being a detailed oriented person forever. I was inquiring this type of information form the local fly shops and it seems as if some do not appreciate the science behind it."just fish", they say! I understand the rational for stiffer material for butt and taper sections and softer for tippets. However it is unclear to me using your table exactly where the cutoff is. I plan on reading it once more as I may have missed it. But for now I wanted to send my thanks.

I downloaded leader calc about 4 years ago- is it the latest version?
Also, I have a formula for leader calc that is not on your list and would like to put it in but the program is a write only and I don't have the password, please help
