Oops: Sorry Don. I had the wrong swap in mind. I was thinking of the Seaducers 
I “tried” to tie. The pink ones, I just tried to follow your DVD.  I like the 
rope dub MUCH, as in 1000 times better (easier to me) than trying my hand at 
traditional dubbing, which has always been one of the hardest things to do. Use 
no wax, it don’t work for me, use wax and it gums up, TRY to use a little wax, 
and I get either too little or too much in spots, or the dubbing just sticks to 
my fingers and NOT to the thread. Rope dubbing, I take about a 1.5 pound mono I 
get from Hobby Lobby, lash the “noodle of dubbing” to the hook shank, spin it 
around the mono “rope core”, and turn in the opposite direction so the wraps 
get tighter and tighter as it goes. At least that is the way I try and do it.

Don: Thanks a lot. Bout the first saltwater flies I ever tried and didn’t know 
what the heck I was doing, but I tried. Can’t wait for the new DVD. You look 
good in that pic. Looks like you have lost a lot of weight?? Got the sugar 
numbers under control??? Hope so.  I’m late in answering everybody as I had 
gotten mad at Google+ and quit ALL Google (including their groups). Came back 
and had to take a G mail acct (which I hope my techy wife can change this 
evening and get my centurylink addy back linked to the group), and I just 
forgot to check on my  G mail inbox, as I  am apparently having a relapse of 
the H Pylori bacteria ulcers and was in bed for a cpl days with those. Chuck

I’m still here too. Greetings, fellow earthlings!

Got the Blizzard flies back- great looking additions to my VFB collection- when 
I finally get unpacked. Chuck, you have it nailed.

I'm still in the process of relocating to Boise.  In Casper right now loading 
up the moving truck, or at least pointing fingers for the movers. I'm a better 
watcher than a doer when it comes to manual labor. But actually I have been 
doing hours of prep-work. Good thing the company is paying for it- I wouldn’t 
last.

Just about all tying has been set on the back burner until we're in our new 
house and situated- a coupla’weeks. Same with the DVD, on hold too, but it is 
all planned and started.  Will have a camera/tying area for doing DVDs- and I 
have about 10 planned right now.

Here’s the new position and company I’m working for: 
http://www.linkedin.com/pub/don-ordes/93/ab/407
The web site and brochures are in the works, but the big wheels move slow.

Have an offer from a friend in upper Idaho to take me steelhead fishing. 
Looking forward to that.
Any other VFB’ers in the Boise area?  I probably won’t fish until I can get my 
resident license in June. LOTS of pan-fishing and warm-water fishing, lakes 
ponds, rivers, etc. And a flight to Loretto or the Keys is about the same.

They’re gonna flip in Boise when they see my Mokai out on the Snake River.

Went out twice for about an hour each time @ the subdivision pond. Very
small bass & not much bigger gills. Saw big bass close to shore, looked like
they were on beds. Hope to get out to the lake on Saturday, haven't tied
anything lately.

Where IS everyone?  The last post on VFB was on April 19.

Does that mean everyone is out fishing?  If so, let's have some fishing
reports.
If not, why not?

Here's mine:  I haven't been yet. Rehab three days a week and spring
yard-work the rest of the time. :-(
