same stuff, just pull it out of bag long strands perfect for the shroud (see my previous post) Thats what I did on the apple caddis. I use it for dubbing and shroud, just like gary.

Gary used sparkle yarn for dubbing, he just pulled it apart and chopped it up into 1/4 pieces. I believe he even writes this is his book "Caddisflies." The sparkle yarn he used was a blend of wool (65%) and antron (35%). The yarn he used was Aunt Lydia's sparkle yarn. How I know this?...I was lucky enough to meet him and I asked him.

I have plenty of dubbing including black. As I said, i need the yarn for the shroud. I color it with a pen right now, but maybe it's time I dye some yarn black for tying the little black caddis, which is only a little more than two months away, if the snow ever stops.

I knew and tied with gary also, I have his book when it first came signed by him along with a few of his flies he tied for me. although this stuff is not the wool blend it it the same. i have real sparkle yarn from him but will not sell any. here is a pic ready for shroud. you have to chop this for dubbing, i use it for my shrouds though. this is black. jack worked with gary on this. he knew him very well.

Great customer service!!!....quick response with photos yet! Okay Sandy I'm sold. I plan to make a fishing trip out your way this spring. I will be sure to stop in and get some sparkle yarn among other things.

Much easier and more time efficient to just use the real deal for the shroud instead of a ball of fur with some Antron thrown in.

some people should get their facts straight. it is not fur, its is the original materials from Gary. jack knows who has it. he called yesturday, and wants to know who you are since you said you know him..

Way I see it, the facts pretty much speak for themselves

Maybe I'll just have to scan and post up a few of the bills that I've paid to him to jog his memory. Boy wouldn't THAT be something?

No. Jack's a good guy sure enough. What I'm saying, contrary to your fraudulent claims about BookMailers, that Gary's legacy and the ladies at BookMailer don't deserve, is that you aren't the only show in town. Gary's legacy and the fine ladies at BookMailers don't deserve that kind of disrespect whatsoever.
