  1. Hi fellas im looking to buy a used but still good quality Buck tail pouch. I like the way the gear up pouches accommodate a good amount of bucktails along with enough space for shad bodies or grub tails. my budget will only allow me to spend $45 for something like this. if anyone is looking to part with a gently used pouch let me know.

  2. thank you all you have all brought up things i havnt considered doing these first flies and walk away with a much better understanding of better practices when putting these flies together.
  3. :-) hey thanks man
  4. thanks for the suggestions Jabster. I think med sized profile I believe most of the bait around my waters are medium or large bunker / shad.
  5. thanks for the push of confidence, I did wet them down but they still seem a bit sparse in my opinion just want my ties to be somewhat as full as the hollows ive seen posted here
  6. Hey fellas I've been trying to expand my arsenal of flies and figured I'd give the hallow fly pattern an attempt. Needless to say it didn't go well as is to be expected tying a pattern for the first time. The most obvious reason was that hooks I was using had a reletivly normal shank length. And the 2ndly I just don't know what I'm doing lol. Just been using you tube for instructions. So I figured I'd reach out to those with experience tying these flies. what type of hooks should I be using? FYI my target species are striped bass and other north east game fish if that helps. Lue
  7. close thread please relocating it to fly tying section.
  8. thank you RedGreen I appreciate the advice. i guess in my eagerness to post the question I neglected to fallow the right thread.

  10. What other fly patterns do well this early in the season?
  11. I can take a hazing my man, I just prefer it to be in front of me. rather than peripherally. Im in other forums where the members are real C*nts but its understood when joining thats what your getting your self into. just wasn't aware SOL was the same atmosphere. Any who thanks your suggestions they were helpful so thanks for that.
  12. ohh i see whats happening. Im getting roasted by older SOL members on a separate thread and its starting to carry over into this one. SMH ok kids enjoy your middle school BS. everyone else thanks for the honest suggestions, I do appreciate the information. tight lines
  13. my only issue with that is that im planning to attach said holders to a rear bike basket which already sits close to the ground. id be concerned that the butt of the rods would come in contact with the road while riding. so looking to have the lower half of the handle from reel seat to butt of rod to me covered by the holder that comes out to be 25 inches (with a notch where the reel stem sits into). If i end up having to use Schedule 40 pipe i might have to cut out slits from the tube to cut down on the weight.
  14. Hmm that is litarally the next town over from me!!! ill deff reach out and see if they have any in supply
