    In latest TROUT magazine, Dave Whitlock discusses the Parachute Adams. In the article, he refers to an old method of tying the hackle below the thorax, not above as typically done today. Read The Fly Tier’s Benchside Reference re tying below the thorax but think I’d benefit from a video. My search generates no examples … any sugggestions?

    Reading a fly tying book and several patterns call for both grizzly and black bear under fur. Feather-Craft has black bear patches which will include some underfur, but no grizzly bear. Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance

  • Fascinated by micro flies i saw at this year”s Sowbug Roundup. Didn’t get the tyer’s name nor did i get a supplier’s name. Anyone know where to obtain size 30 and 32 hooks, either nymph or dry or both? Search on web plus call to a favorite fly shop revealed little info other than I think TMC no longer makes their 588. Thanks in advance

  • Reading Deke Meyer’s “Hot Bass Flies” and am intrigued by example of Loving’s fly on page 16. Searched for instructions but found nothing pertaining to adding the side hackles to the deer hair body. Anyone know how to do that or can refer me to an article explains same?
