    Anyone Tie with Bison?

    Bison fur makes some real nice warm hats, socks, and gloves for winter fishing.. I was introduced to bison wool by an old family friend.

    Trailer Blinkers/Lights Troubleshooting

    Fortunately, probably not. A relay is a relay,…. But yeah, there are a lot of computers in a modern vehicle. Glad you solved your problem. Sometimes it’s just the lowly connector. Ps. Some one already prove me wrong so forget what I said about relay…

    Saltwater fly storage- prevent hook rust

    Since I use a boat, and beach launch and retrieve it each time, I will rinse my flies in fresh water and let the air dry on the seat or other horizontal surface in the boat until next time. I think storing them in the open air is important. They will last me the season depending on the hook if...

    NFR Who has a folding tonneau cover on their truck?

    I'm kind of a tonneau cover guy, I like to keep the truck profile while keeping my stuff out of sight. I currently have a fiberglass lid on my truck and it's a royal pain to take off. Not as hard as a canopy, but, awfully heavy. I've been eying the Diamondback series of covers for my truck...

    Puget Sound

    Finally hit the water last night. Kind of a goat rope. Misplaced my flies so I went with what I could find laying around the boat from last year. No fish, but saw lots a fry or bait everywhere. 3 seals, eagle, otter and sea lion were spotted.

    Chironomid body wrap?

    What Merle said. I've been using my stash of that stretch floss material I bought from Kaughmans years ago. I have also used red mylar flash for some of my blood worm patterns. Sam

    A Memorial, For A Man Named Greggor

    Absolutely sorry to hear about your grandfather. Your post made me reflect on my grandfather, although we didn't fish together much, he taught me how to tie fishing knots. Also made me reflect on my Dad, who we lost a couple years ago. Every time I fish, I think of him. Ha, I also think of...
