Fly Tying: To Grind or Not Grind

I came across a zip lock bag of dubbing that was clearly not, as it looked in the bag, from any fly shop. Long ago, I took assorted dubbings and selected amounts of this one and that one then put them in an old coffee grinder and blended the components until I saw what I envisioned to be a fishy concoction. 

Blending your own creations of dubbing is a simple project and adds to your sense if unique creations and individual flare. Often, with so many options hanging on a hook in a shop, you will find what you need. Others have done the thinking and grinding and why bother with fussing about making your own? If you have that overly developed sense of creativity in fly tying then you will eventually eye that coffee grinder on the counter and decide it is time to buy a new coffee grinder…and hey, you might as well set that old grinder by your tying station. Here is more input on tying and dubbing as well… Dubbing flies, particularly spiky thoraxes, adds a lot of suggestive life like features to your flies. Knowing all the possibilities of dubbing will greatly expand your creative efforts and thinking about presentation of the fly.

Fly Fishing: Simple Partridge & Green Shined

Yesterday, midday, on the McKenzie River the Partridge and Green Wet Fly Shined

PMD’s and a variety of  Caddis were coming off. As the fly became tattered from teeth, it still worked just fine until it finally came undressed. Darn!  Tutorial/SBS by Oregon Fly Fishing Blog.

The Caddis Fly Shop (Good Service = Goodwill)

A few days ago, I lamented my G4 Simms Boots and the fit that had more than once contributed to my painfully hobbling some distance back to the rig in a slow progression of steps, sometimes wading. The boots just never fit right and for the money, I felt I was going to make it work. Well, I couldn’t. So yesterday, while in Eugene, I mentioned it to the Chris Daughters @ The Caddis Fly Shop he said bring them in and lets see what we can do. I wasn’t expecting much as I could not totally explain the odd fit I experienced once donning the boots. They looked fine, but fit unlike any other wading boots I had owned. Well, today I brought them in and I will just say that Lou Verdugo (always a prince) and Chris displayed the customer service and positive attitude that will forever garner my business when near that region. Excellent shop. Excellent Service. Excellent knowledge without attitude. I walked out with a pair of Simms Guide Boots that were a much better fit thanks to Lou & Chris. Oh, and I sprung for a new Airflo Tactical Skagit Compact @ 540 grains. Less whining now. OFFB too.
