It is an awesome vehicle! I don't push it but have taken many corners at 50 mph and a couple of times drifted the ass end out while going around a tight corner. I'm always afraid of getting a speeding ticket so lift my right foot at 100 mph. I'm hitting 85 mph in 3rd gear before it redlines - 4th gear really pulls well, fifth is less potent and 6th is basically an overdrive gear.

If I actually thought my undergraduate degree in psychology was worth anything I might think you were compensating here Matt...passive aggressive or some such...As long as the intent is "friendly" I guess we'll live with it.

I'm always friendly. But since you are throwing it out there what do you think I'm compensating for?

It's a friggin joke Matt. I'm just following your new mantra:

I don't like to just go with the flow anymore. If I see some comment that interests me I will possibly respond and maybe with a flip comment. A little friendly friction makes these forums more interesting.

Okay, friggin lighten up, I thought only I had the droll sense of humor.

I'm going to go back to my old ways no more sarcasm, flipedness, crankiness, or wiseacreness. From now just Mr. Nice Guy. Seriously.

I'll tell you what's being compensated for. Lack of fishing opportunities...;) We're almost there!

Yes, thank goodness for the melting snow and slightly warmer days. Before long, I'm thinking very late April, there will be Hendricksons on the Catskill rivers and earlier on central PA waters.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter at church and with our families.

These nymphs are classic and fish great. CJ

Pretty. Are they Mustad 9672's? What material are you using for the wing case?

Looks like 9672's and jungle cock on some and mylar on the others. Nice dubbing work.

Catskilljon,

Those barbs look like harpoons! I really like those flies. I'd like half a dozen to display in my nymph box.

Yeah those old style hooks when overboard with the barbs. Very little barb is needed, if at all. This is true with conventional lures too. I mash down the barbs on all my soft plastics, topwaters and crankbaits. The only lures I keep a barb on are heavier lipless cranks (micro-barbs) and jigs. All my flies are barbless.

They are vintage Herters nymph hooks, #12 around 3X long. The old hooks did have huge barbs! I have some allcock dry fly hooks with barbs as big as the point...those handmade hooks were something else.

The wingcase is kingfisher, from the secondary wing quills. Atherton used kingfisher, and later Darbee recommended blue floss. I like the taper of the wing slips, though they are short and tricky to set right.

Thanks guys, these flies work well, especially that #1 with the JC wingcases. CJ
