    Great report. I used to live out east but, never caught a pickerrel on a fly rod or a fly for that matter. It's on my bucket list. It's even better to know that you can catch them in a creek too. I'm...

    You made a good choice. I've found buying the 100 packs to be more cost effective than buying a saddle or a cape. Plust the quality of the feathers are just as good as those found on the saddles.

    Thanks for the recipe, it looks almost exactly like the one I tie. That's nice looking ps. I usually fish size 12s but, for small streams the 14s and 16s would be great choice.
