I finally started using "blind-eye hook" and "silkworm gut". For most supplies, check with John with Feathers MC (www.feathersmc.com) and he will get you loaded.
Harrison Bartleet 4/0 by Gaelic Supreme!!
For the first ever tie with the blind-eye hook, I chose the Durham Ranger. I'd say "not bad" for the starter!!
This last weekend, I worked on a couple of my own designs as season's greeting. To keep them secret until they receive, I just post "parts" for now (will post whole things in the next post!).
How about this one? What's the theme here?
Recently I'm purchasing miscellaneous stuffs on E-bay. I found and purchased Spanish silk leaders. With these, I'm going to make "gut" for blind-eye hooks!!
A sexy pair of silk glove to work with fine Japanese silk.
This is a bargain material that came with the leader above. Yet this is very old and unique!
Hopefully I can go fishing this week!
Everyone stay warm and enjoy the Holiday season!
