Hackle, Book, and "Royal Mic"
Those that tie flies know that in the last few months they have become a premium item. In some places, especially internet shops they have all been impossible to purchase. The reason for this is they are being used in hair fashion.
Lets hope this trend dies rapidly, or your next fly purchase may be as costly as a cup of specialty coffee.
This is a book that I would place very high on a list of, "just plain good books".
There are several writers who tell of their experiences with wild trout. It's a very enjoyable read.
This bucktail streamer...."Royal Mic", is a creation of mine. It incorporates several of the same materials used in the Royal Coachman, and Mickey Finn streamers.
