    JT you asked me to try out a new design in a hackle tool called TYFLYZ TOOLZ -Hackle Tweezer several weeks ago. Since that time I have tyed over 150 flies and I am really impressed with the product. The flies were 18-22, Adams and pheasant tails, #12 french nyumphs and #14/18 soft hackle. The tool performed flawlesly, providing a continious firm grip on delicate stems duringing the process. Your wesite notifications are very informative and you have a fine selection of fly fishing gear and materials in your shop. Your low prices on tungston are legendary. I support the local purchases of products from our fly shops. You cannot get the timely information, service , product exposure and personal interaction from the BIG BOX STORES. Bob

    Hi, Jim and Debby! The trout are few and far between here in Kansas…as in none. I miss seeing you two! I am writing to ask 1) how many strands the Cortland paracord is that you have for sale, and 2) how many feet per unit. Thanks!

    Ruth and I hope to return for a week starting around Oct. 1. See you soon! – Keith
