Fly Anglers Online Article Archive – A Great Resource

I was searching for a way to quickly thin some head cement so I didn’t have to drive to the store (a drive to anywhere from my house is not a short trip), and I stumbled upon Fly Anglers Online. The tying tips articles archive is a fantastic resource. It has tips for nearly everything, from making your own head cement, general proportions for dry fly components, how to store threads and tools — almost anything you can think of and a ton of things you never have.

Anyway, I ended up using some denatured alcohol to thin some lacquer based head cement that’s been here for two years. Hope I didn’t screw anything up but it seems to be working fine.

Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition

Salter - Brook Trout

Just got notified that the Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition in Massachusetts is accepting dues and payment for limited edition artwork on their website:

Hi Folks, The Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition website is now set up to accept Paypal for annual dues and sales of the limited addition James Prosek print of the Red Brook salter. Please visit the SRBTC website for more information.

They also indicate on their website that they are “actively seeking sponsors and members.” It’s a good cause if you are interested in conserving this wonderful strain of brook trout, which run to and from the ocean and get quite large for brookies.
