    A useful small stream dry fly

    About two weeks ago I was asked to share fly patterns I use for my small stream fishing, especially brook trout. Today I tied up some of my craneflies. I use this fly more and more often than anything else these days other than the little green stonefly which is nothing more than a lime green...

    Winter fishing

    Winter is has set in here in Vermont. I was just wondering if people do much ice fishing in the UK and Europe? It is a big thing in Vermont though I find it difficult to get in to I have done it.

    I just tied up these for fishing LL salmon and trout feeding on smelt running from our lakes to spawn in the streams. I thought I would ask if you fish this type of fly across the pond? Bobby

    Fox dubbing in dry flies?

    I have been checking everyplace to see if the use of the pink fur of the vixen red fox belly in tying dry flies originates in the USA or if British and European fly tiers used it first. Perhaps some of you guys on the small stream thread might know or we can chalk it up to Gordon and his...

He credited its use to an American, Eric Leiser, who may have mentioned it but certainly the use of that...

    Rod & Reel Ballance

    The snow is piling up outside my window at this moment and I thought discussing rod reel balance might be enjoyable on a winter's day.
