There is a pretty good rumor that Mr. Mark Libertone is a cook among cooks...I think, from what I've heard, we all should be climbing in the van and heading to Wellsville for Thanksgiving Italian style!
Clients brought heavy rods with them geared for big salmon, and rainbows, and would hook a grayling, and yard them in saying how disgustingly poor fighters they were. Then at dinner, I'd have to listen to it again!!!...but with a smile of course.
So Troutnut I am not going to totally take your title of the couldest person on the forum. We can share the title.
Thanks to everybody for your advise. I definitely will tie a large number of beetles and Humpies, but I'll need to work up my skill to tie one of those Royal Doublewings.
-20, -30, -40...Aren't we nitpicking a bit here?...
Jason - What size Royal Double-Wing do you prefer? Do you use reg. brown hackle and nat. deer hair or go the full coachman brown dyed hair and hackle? Any pictures?
