    Caimore Magna Vice

    Evening all, Would anybody have the above, c-clamp or pedestal, that they would be willing to part with. Making up a kit for young chap and I'd like to get him a decent, sturdy vice without spending too much. I've used the above before and found it a very good vice for the money. Owners at...

    Light Olive Veniard dye

    Was thinking the same Jim. Quick dip and just a pinch of dye should get the desired result.

    Light Olive Veniard dye

    Thanks for the replies gents. Had a look at the jacquard dyes a while back, nothing really light olive in their range, unless I've over looked something. Was there a light olive Veniards dye at all at any point. Seems odd they would have it included in their colour chart and not for sale...

    Light Olive Veniard dye

    I'm looking for the above. I think I used to have it, but I may be wrong. Tried all the usual sites that stock what appears to be the full range, with no luck. The colour doesn't appear on the Veniard site in the Dyes & Venpol section but does appear on their Dye colour chart:confused: I do see...

    Hareline medium Dun Snowshoe

    Thanks Novice. If it's not to much trouble please do post a pick, but check first if the fiber length near the toe is around 2cm, if it's not, no point in taking time to set up and take a pic as the hair is too short for what I want. I appreciate your offering Sir:thumbs: ---------- Post added...

    Hareline medium Dun Snowshoe

    Thanks taterdu. I saw the Funky ones today at the Irish Fly Fair. Quiet a bit darker than I wanted, also the fiber length was too short. Need them for Kamasan B170's. Always the way in this game. Fine something that works well and solves a problem and then it can't be found. SIGH.

    Hareline medium Dun Snowshoe

    Thanks for that PinkShrimp, but it's the Hareline stuff I want, not the Spirit River. Probably the same really but only the Hareline will do for me.

    Where to buy Davie McPhail Flies

    I can take a very long look at it and confirm that I have no idea what to make of it. The point I'm trying to make is to some people, that blank canvas in The Museum of Modern Art is indeed art, to me it's not and a load of bollox as, TO ME, how can a blank canvas be art. But that's just MY...

    Where to buy Davie McPhail Flies

    This ^, a thousand times this. As for flies being art. Flies can be art to some people. These people in my experience, no offence intended to anyone, are people who are very new to fly fishing or have never tied a fly...in general. But what's wrong with flies being classed as art by some...

    Where to buy Davie McPhail Flies

    Post again by all means, tis a fine place to learn and gather info but the bullshit does become tiresome. I suggested leaving a comment on one of his vids, by this I mean on Youtube, he usually responds promptly. I don't have his mobile and if I did I wouldn't give it to you. I do have his...

    Where to buy Davie McPhail Flies

    I love this thread, it reminds me in so many ways why I rarely come near this forum anymore. I was in contact with Mr McPhail yesterday and he does indeed tie for a living but is fully booked with orders for quiet some time. If you comment on one of his more recent vids enquiring for flies he...

    Waterproof bib and brace

    Just an update on this thread. I think I've found a Jacket/Bib combo that will do the trick. I've talked to the lady who owns the company and she has assured me, no matter what, I'll stay dry. I can't find many reviews about the product online and was wondering if anyone here has used them. Nice...
