    Hey Randy - Fly fishing is what I'm most passionate about, and I tie my own flies. I'd love to get some of that badger if you've got any left. That's a great offer - very generous!

    This is a fly I call The Super Model (all synthetic materials)


    And this is what they catch

    Be very careful... it's a dark and dangerous path with no return...

    Ya that is why I haven't gone there. Living in Wy, there is some great places to go for fishing. I would like more of a sport to it than just drinking beer.

    I just wandered into the most random, amazing thread, no idea what tying a fly was, now I know. Thanks folks. Look forward to seeing some made with those badgers. I should show my father this.

    f**k yeah!

    One has to be slightly deranged to chase those things in CO. There's only a few weeks out of the year when they come in to shallow enough water to target from shore. But you never know when that will be. I've spent years, numerous miles and countless fishless hours chasing imaginary pike. That was my biggest ever, about two weeks ago. 42", at least 20lbs, prolly a bit more.

    Nice pike!!! If you ever make it up to MI, hit me up. I will put you into some amazing pike on the fly. I have been fly fishing for the better part of 20 years, tying flies for all of it. Also we have blue ribbon smallmouth streams and of course some world famous trout streams Badger fur is a great hair for the back of giant muddler flies, great for pike and smallies

    Here's a guy who's tied a few flies in his time. The "often imitated but never duplicated," Lefty Kreh. Taken on visit with him some years ago.
