Allen, I've added you as a friend. I'll contact you tonight after I get back in from Church if that is ok. I pastor a Church in Athens, AL and I have a real busy day today. Thanks for accepting me as your friend and look forward to "gleaming" from your knowledge of Big Blue Gill!.
Thank you Allen for accepting the invite. Carl Hendricks told me I should befriend you. We were talking fly tying when it come up. I am a muddling beginner at best. Been tying about a year off and on, mostly jigs though...once again thank you Sir....
Allen, I got my copy of, "The Book of Fly Patterns," by Eric Leiser. To my nimrod eyes, it is very thorough and conciseOf you don't have it, I recommend it.
PS I got it used from alibris.com 6$, shipped. It's the 1993 version and isn't really internet savvy. Aside from that, it's golden.
Hey Allen -Took a look at your 100 photo slideshow today and enjoyed the pics! I see besides nice Gills and Redears on the Flyrod you get many on Spinners too .I don't catch many on spinners as I usually throw something else but I have caught some of my best Gills on a #2 Blue Fox Super Vibrax and a 3.5 Blade Joes fly.I gotta order some more spinner parts and make up my own again .What is that Gold spinner that shows up a lot in your pics .I suspect its hand assembled buy you .Is it?
All the best ,John
oh BTW I would like to see more pics of your large Catfish captures!
You may know I'm looking at a float tube. I see that, like me, you are not a micro-sized man. I don't eat much tofu or bean sprouts, and I don't miss many dressings.
So, here I am 6'1" and 235#, and wondering...
"What 'tube should I get?"
If you don't object, may I ask which one so you use, or recommend for bigger chaps like us... well, me anyway?
[I'm trying to be as delicate as I can here, bear with me.]
