  2. First musk ox, now llama. What's next, dragon scales? (I keed, I keed)
  3. Rob,

    You must have missed the wallaby :cool:

    Seriously now - Llama is readily available these days from many flyshops. Or substitute some fine synthetic fibers - no worries.

  4. Rob, I will do a SBS of my dragon scale , tiger wisker, and cobra venom dyed wallaby eye lash dubbing emerger soon

  5. I can hardly wait. Seriously though, Hans, I am eternally grateful for you videos as I have begun to spend more time at the bench now that I am retired. I can't make it to the size 22 wolly bugger but I keep trying.:)
  6. I've used llama for awhile. One of my buddies was a llama trainer so I had a natural supply.

    At least Hans hasn't used Eye of Newt... yet.:)

    (I can't tie a size 16 WB)
  7. This will be a great estuary fly to use in the next month or two, targeting SRC.

    Thanks Hans
