  6. I am a new member and usually lurk, but here you need to have 15 good posts in a week before you can PM, etc. I love that rule although it intimidated me at 1st. There are plenty of areas to explore and definitely opportunities to comment and or contribute to. I appreciate this forum, all the knowledge shared, the quick, detailed responses to my inquiries, etc. I am still in my week probation period so thanks Tim and to all the members who PM'd me. I cannot PM back yet, but will as soon as my restrictions have been lifted tackle addict

  12. Hi Steve, love the images displaying how to change the avatars. I am not computer savvy so seeing the images makes all the difference. I just joined the forum yesterday and want to change my avatar. I deleted the default photo I selected but now I think all the default pictures are gone as well. I do not see the "replace avatar" under photo like screen shot 2 shows. would you be able to assist me please? thank you tackle addict
  13. Hi Charlie, nice fly tying but your wood working skills are beautiful. I am new to the forum and to tying flies. I have a friend who might be able to help with a wood project. Would you mind giving some material measurements / specs for your brush making station please? would you mind taking some close up pictures of it from different angles so we can see it better when you have time? thank you in advance, tackle addict
  14. thanks for sharing what to look for. I have not fished for carp. I hear they spook easily but once they take your fly they give a good fight.
  15. thanks for sharing and making the tying video. Great instructions. How does the Sheeps Fleece react when fished? does it keep the shape or pulsate on the pause for example? I am new to tying and not familiar with that material yet. thank you , tackle addict
  16. awesome! thanks for the quick response and PM I look forward to learning it and using it.
  17. beautiful! thank you so much!
  18. impressive! I am just getting started tying myself. I have not discovered my creative side yet. Hopefully more time at the tying bench and on the forum will help. what a great feeling to have your son take such an interest. got any pictures of him catching? I'd love to see him in action. thanks, tackle addict

  20. very cool looking flies! I am new to tying and first day as a member to this forum. I am not familiar with the action in the water with this type of fly. does it sink or float? sorry if it's a dumb question. The EZ body material and diamond braid looks like something fun to create with. thanks for sharing tackle addict
  21. sorry for typo scooleen74
  22. hi scooleen72 I like your flies! I am a So Cal girl, new to tying flies and 1st day to the forum. What brand, size etc hooks did you use? what yellowish material did you use to wrap the hook shank with? which of the flies shown in the picture has brought you the most catches? I would like to try tying some for my local beaches. thanks for sharing tackle addict
