well i guess i was wrong

looking at the first post i assumed they were your first attempts... so i offered some help

i wasn't refering to a weedless mono loop
rather a wire loop, perpendicular to the hook plane
this will help keep materials from fouling

Ramcatt,
Sandfly is among the most experienced (maybe THE most experienced) fly tiers and fly fishermen on this forum. I'm sure it was an honest critique however, as we do get a lot of new tiers on this forum seeking constructive criticism. No harm, no foul as the saying goes.

Osprey,
30" smallmouth? 72" musky?
The all tackle world records for these species are smaller than these lengths but....
Ah yes, ya gotta love an optimist.

Even though Bob can really throw the B/S he is trouthful in what he is talking about
I have known him for over 30 yrs and even though he is part indian he does not talk with a forked tongue !
So listen and observe what he says and does !

In all the cowboy and indian movies I saw, it was always the white man that spoke with a forked tongue....

Bead,
I'm assuming Bob is "Osprey" rather than a different poster on this thread...

Anyway, my comment about "ya gotta love an optimist" was merely an effort to make light of what are clearly fish size exaggerations. I certainly didn't mean to impugn Osprey's integrity - as your post seems to imply. He's a great contributor to this forum and I enjoy his friendly and insightful posts. His ethnic heritage is irrelevant to this issue. YOU are the one claiming that he can "really throw the BS."

However, the world records for smallmouth bass and muskellunge, while currently in some dispute over particular fish, are in the range of 27" and 60" respectively. Sure, there are smallies over 20" and muskies over 50" in the Susky but I stand by my comment regarding the realistic sizes of these game fish.

Aw heck (sound of hand slapping head).

Bad assumption on my part. NOTE: Sometimes it's best to use quote function or refer to folks by their forum rather than actual name to avoid such misunderstanding. I would humbly request folks ignore my previous post - state of confusion. My apologies to beadhead.

Anyway, it's off to the woodshed for yours truly for a whippin with a 6 WT fly rod blank, fast action (man, I hate this treatment, hurts like heck).

Fishidiot..........I am not Bob , but throwing the b/s? I'll go up against anyone on that. Having said that , the 30" smallmouth i'm pretty honest to god certain about that (27" is the record i think , so why is three more inches such a stretch?) now the 72" musky may fall into the other category heh. Seriously though , on Nat Geo "Monster Fish" they found the skeletal remains of a jaw bone and had this sculptor try and recreate the fish in sculpture , using the jaw bone as a reference point , if i remember correctly it was well over 6' , the jaw bone was found somewhere in Michigan i believe , i have seen some huge musky in the area around Liverpool but i never actually went out with the intention of targeting them , usually saw them while floating the susk for smallmouth. Don't feel bad , stay out of that woodshed , about doubting me , to a person every river rat i ever told about that fish said i was hallucinating , but i saw what i saw.
