Meiser Fiasco

I've been getting ready to take the test later this summer. Just couldn't get ready by the Sandy Clave. I've been spending some time smoothing my casting stroke, 50/50 use of top and bottom hands and...

Thumbs up Most Common Fault

I feel there are two that share the lead, SLACK and a poor STOP. Both are killers of a good cast.

Lightbulb Marabou

Not sure who originally posed the question, so I'll just throw this out. I tie most of my Steelhead flies "Spey style" and use marabou. I've found that "blood quill" works best. I select the feathers...

Question When To Go & When To Whoa

I thought I'd run this by everyone to solicit any and all thoughts. "Whoa" or the stop on the forward cast is pretty much forthright. It's the stop on the back, allowing the "D" or "V" loop to form...

Wink Double Tapers

I don't fish with them. They are, however, a great practice line. If you have faults with your casting, they'll bring them out in a hurry.
