amateur fly tying not economically justifiable

Another thing: If you buy "starter" tools, it doesn't take long to discover that "starter" vises won't hold hooks well. So you go out and buy a good vise, and the downward spiral begins. :-)

local colors for Galloup Stacked Blonde

Kelly Galloup ties his Stacked Blonde streamer in white, yellow, and chartreuse. Would those colors work locally, or would others work better? All suggestions appreciated.

vest or chest pack

One drawback to a waist or fanny pack is that it limits the depth of water in which you can wade, unless you've got one of the Simms packs that is waterproof. With my chest pack I can wade at least...

The suspenders go over your shoulders just as regular suspenders, and the straps on the hip waders which usually attach to your belt attach to the suspenders instead.

suspenders for hip waders

Several years ago I saw suspenders for hip waders in a flyfishing catalog. That store no longer carries them. Does anyone know where I can find some? Byron?

Re: Clinch Access

We'll never know unless we try. We might not get every landowner to sell an easement, but even one or two more access points would be welcome, don't you think?
