Have talked with Jeff already due to another list member pointing me in his direction. Jeff has been most helpful. Nice site too. I hope I can cast those things! Spring run Merrimack here I come.

Terry -

I would also consider corresponding with Jeff Smith of Tip of the Cape. He is really jazzed about yak hair flies and may offer you some good advice.

More Yak Hair Tying

I decided to take a run up to see a shop I never been in before, American Anglers in Salem N.H. Not a bad outfit. Prices weren't bad on most things. What was amazing though was I found some Yak Hair Striper Flies like the ones I'm trying to tie lately (see "$6.00 Fly" thread). They had a price tag of $12.00! Now, when the veterens of tying say you never save money tying, I start to doubt it when I see I'm tying $12.00 flies!

Anyway, I'm getting the recipe down on them Yakkers. LAst night I had to start over after getting 1/3 done. I realized I needed some bucktail on the back of the shank <i><b>before </i></b>the ezbody spreader goes on. And I found I needed to leave more space between the spreader and the hook eye for tying down stuff.
Interesting things you learn. Soon I should be able to crank them out. After a dozen I can move on to some Pollock for the Nahant and Rockport cliffs. Then the bunnies for the cape, then.....Help!
