Pebble Mine Update?

Hot button topic a few years ago. Much angst was generated against the then current administration. It appears that Obama et al (Browner/Salazar/USACE/BLM) are receiving a pass. This recent critique is somewhat tame with ‘apparently” and “maybe”. Pretty tepid. Pretty wimpy. Pretty trusting considering how much they are mucking up everything else. Also, given the Obama monies to PetroBras and the Soros investments in Platinum Group Metals (PMG) too much trust here is not deserved. Oh, please, spare me any Media Matters or HuffPo drivel. The focus on coal mining reforms should not distract from the Bristol Bay threat.

Pool 32 Mag & NatGeo provide  yet another visual and mental reminder that this whole issue of minerals v. fish; risk v. habitat is still there, and it is about time the pass for Obama et al stops!

Fly Tying: Poly Body/Wing (TMC Aero Dry Wing)

 

Aero Dry Wing by TMC

Aero Dry Wing Material @ Blue Dun Flies

I came across Blue Dun Flies via Simon Graham. This mayfly pattern is interesting. I am not sure if the proposed material: Aero Dry Wing, a poly yarn material, is readily available or any different than other poly yarn materials. The comments here and there re the material state it is hollow and straight making it appealing for flotation and handling.

 

Dave Wiltshire at the Fly Forums (UK) offers a source for this ‘expensive’ material at Flytek (UK). Perhaps a visitor can comment re this material’s qualities and availabilities? I believe Hareline & Wapsi may also provide this material.
