  5. North American Fly Patterns
    Pattern #4 in my "desert island" MSA auction box. While the background behind this pattern has been lost in history, it has been around for decades. It remains a popular pattern, especially in the back end of the season. It is particularly effective in peaty rivers such as the Cains. Tip...

  13. Fly Tying Topics
    Need some advice, I like wrapping 1/2" copper tubes in dubbing and wrapping them in wire. The thing is the dubbing always seems to give way after a few hours swimming my runs. May be i should move to flat braid but the dubbing looks good and works ! Where am I going wrong ? Thanks SH
