Sad? No. Infuriating? Absolutely.

Oddly enough, though, in this instance I actually have to say the same thing about our boy Alpo here. Wouldn't say a word the whole time, and I figured he was just being his usual jerskstore self; imagine my surprise when I foudn out he was being principled and loyal at the same time.

You're still a precocious little brat, but you've shown us all you're capable of much more... A real life lesson, you are!

I long to be a bird on the wire when you finally lose it on some 50yo jackhole with an entitlement issue who can't do the simple task and causes you to snap.

If you had basic mastery of English and grammar, or a damned good ghostwriter, I'd read your exploits. :)

I know, it doesn't have a garish fish picture on the side so it loses your attention. :)

I'd say something about shiny objects, but I'm guilty of that, too.

Oh sweet, lovable Jesus in a side car. I wish I'd have been there for that.

I never found you guys after the Borger presentation, did I? Sorry, if I didn't get to the car and inhale booger medicine at that moment, my nose was going to fall off.

Truth.

You could go down in fishing circles like Epic Beard Man on the transit bus (jdaddy, you'll want to youtube that, enjoy).

Holy carp, I'm going to live in the memory of that moment, even if it never happens. Some old man, face down in the Pocoloco, shouting about how he needs an amblamps while you're across the pool screaming at him.

Osprey, there's two shows in Somerset. The fly tiers' symposium, and the fly fishing show. The FF show has been cloned in Philly this year, as well.

ObCoc de Leon: The AK Best book being touted as cheap in the media forum has a section on CDL. I only glanced at it briefly, as I have no CDL and just use paint brush bristles for tailing anyways.

I should've bought some spade hackle from Collins' booth, though. The "proper thing," and all that.

To hell with proper if the paint brush bristles work go for it as a matter of fact i never heard of using paint brush for tailing and now i'm anxious to try it myself. Do you use a bunch of them or just like a split tail 2 or wha?

Depends on how saucy I feel.

Quality tapered nylon bristles _are_ microfibbets, just without the colouring.

The key is getting them cheap, as hacking up artist grade brushes is a good way to learn the economics of buying Orvis-branded microfibbets as cheap.

So, goto your art store, I know Micheal's has these brushes, and I'm sure that AC Moore does to. In the fine art brushes section you'll see a 3 pack of pine handled, stamped metal holders, and white, tapered, bristle brushes. I believe the 3 pack is like $10.

Take them, hit the markers up and buy some sharpies (if you don't already have the assortment of colours you need, sharpies are awesome for fly tying). Pay for 'em, go home, and then just cut off what you need at any given point, colour in with sharpie, and tie in like you would fibbets.

I don't have a trico picture, but you can certainly tie two or four (or whatever) in for small, "proper" tailing, too.

The otehr thing I use for tails is moose mane in single strnds for real lookin' tails, or clumps of whatever hair is available for just about anything else.

Moose mane up there, conviently on my desk as I cleaned out my boxes of crap on the last conference call I was on.

I'll be demanding a pound of flesh, formed mostly of the skin and hair of the moose's mane, next time I see you, sir.

In exchange, I offer you my wit and charm during our time together. It, like my waistline, is ample.

I could care less about being made fun of Jerry you should know that by now. Except my family I guess thats the only thing I would get mad about.

Reasons behind Elem. Edu. I enjoy working with children that are not at the snot nose punk stage, so middle school and high school are not a big draw for me. In addition, the job market for a male teacher in Elementary schools is unbelievable.Almost guaranteed a job when I finish. Plus, I do not have one fav. subject that I would want to teach for the rest of my life. I would have to specialize in one subject for middle or high school. If I want to teach those levels down the road all I have to do is Take my Praxis II in a certain subject and I would be able to teach in secondary schools.

Simple as that

So, little boys then?

AlpaBuck, stay away! You're young and sweet, and our Chaz is...well, surprisingly baby faced, too. Hell, maybe you guys'll make a good couple.

I love this material for my small euro nymphs, where sparseness is important, and thats about it. For my larger nymphs, I like something a bit fuller. It is great stuff though.
