I did find Shumakov's flies on those sites, I'm very impressed by them. I'm wondering if you have tried his patterns for steelhead or know anybody who has.
Also, he has a unique tube that I think he calls a Ranger ? I did find a shop that sells them and they appear somewhat similair to the Loop bottle tube. Any experience with these ?
Final question is about his materials. He uses some unusaula materials in his wings. Any idea where these can be found ?
