Nick showed me some of his new woven patterns he's been working on last night and I had to take some pictures of them to post because they are freaking awesome. I've been trying to weave for a few weeks now and while I'm getting better, I still don't feel confident enough to post some of my woven patterns just yet.
His flies are big fat attractor nymphs and I want him to tie me some for my Steelhead trip to the Salmon River in two weeks. I especially love the woven prince nymph. He even keeps true to the original with the peacock collar.
He also has some for sale. Drop me a line if you're interested and I can get you in contact with him.
In other news, if you're looking to get some grizzly hackle this year, you're out of luck. Apparently the fashion industry has decided to buy it all. Montana Fly Company is saying they won't be able to fufill new hackle orders until 2012. I heard about this from Bill at my local fly shop last week and thought it was a bunch of BS. Then I saw this website and video.
WHAT THE HELL!
I'm all for watching videos of hot chicks, but I just want to rip those feathers out of their hair and knock out some parachute adams.
