Thank-you Mr. Dorsey for sharing your knowledge as well as Mr. Craven's , Mr. Barr's and other anglers dedicating their life to fishing. This is an awesome book, and I have only gone through 1/4 of it. I fish in Colorado 4 to 5 times a year, The San Juan 1 to 2 times a year, and usually a couple trips to Idaho or Utah. A lot of research goes into each trip as my time is limited. After purchasing "Tying & Fishing Tail Water Flies" prior to going to Colorado; I have to say the nymph patterns I tested in the tail waters I fished produced just as many takes as the Parachute Hopper I was using in mid September this year. I'm sure you all know a lot of the rivers were pretty much too muddy to fish due to the excessive rains this year. Very unusual. I only had 2 weeks after buying the book to tie, so I focused on various colors of Mercury Flashback Pheasant Tails, Tungsten-Bead Head Prince Nymphs, Mercury Midges, Mercury Case Caddis, & RS2's. Would have liked to have tied up some Beadcrusts but couldn't find the Ruffed Grouse Tail Feathers. After picking up a rock in the Piney & seeing the head on a mayfly nymph glisten in the sun just as the Mercury bead does on the flies I knew what to use. Thanks for being specific on using silver lined beads, if the bead wasn't silver lined it would not glisten like the real nymph head does. We did pick up some fish on the 20 incher as well, didn't have time to tie up any of Mr. Dorsey's Paper Tigers, but you can be sure they will be in my box on the next trip. I look forward to making new boxes of Mr. Dorsey's flies to better my arsenal for our next trips. Thank-you for being specific on your materials, they do make a difference. Your rigging & fishing tips are very informative as well. Excellent book so far!
