Scotty P... I have a bunch of glo bugs tied on circa 1964 Mustads that have your name on themScottyP said:Hey Cheech, I lost a fly box too buddy!
Okay, that was a lie. You are a kind and generous giant, I don't care what the other fellas say about you.
BTW, at risk of hijacking this thread, I just saw a tutorial where a guy uses looped tippet as a parachute post. Have you ever tried it? Looked pretty interesting.
Very cool. That is the hackle stacker technique. I would tie them more, but I see parachute flies much better.ScottyP said:Keep yer **** glow buggs..... I have plenty. Anywhoo, here is the tutorial: http://www.drakemag.com/cgi-bin/ultimat ... ;p=0&r=nfx
I tried to attach it to the last post but the page wouldn't come up earlier. This technique looks like something I could actually do (I have the utmost trouble with parachute ties). He recommends 7X.
Sounds good bro.ScottyP said:I love fishing parachutes but as I said, I don't tie them so well (no 2 look alike). I have made up for that shortcoming by tying comparadun style flies but I thought this technique was pretty cool. I have heard of hackle stackers before but didn't know that is how they are done. BTW, I'll be contacting you with an order in the next couple weeks for your totally awesome flies (shameless plug). I need more streamers bad!!!
I have a whole pile of buggers that don't see action. Most of them are pretty ragged, but better than Shopko quality. I even have some that are tied to Stoner's specs, so they should be top producers. Shoot me a mail with an address.PBH said:Cheech -- got any buggers you want to get rid of?
Heck, while I'm at it, I could use a new 5 weight rod as well. Christmas is soon approaching...
That's got to be the most generous response I've ever received! PM sent!cheech said:Hey Trauma... I know how it is to lose flies. Tell me what you like to fish and I'll donate a few dozen to the cause. Feel free to PM me through the site.
