    Drying Wheel

    Figured i would ask here i always just turn my lures by hand as i usually only make a couple but now some buddies want some and they are gonna give me some money woohoo but anyways i have no mechanical skill whatsoever is there anyplace to buy a drying wheel or if i have to build one is there a step by step anywhere. Once again i am not mechanically inclined so i plead with you help please lol
  2. i am a fly tyer so i will make this short and sweet. If you are just going to tie a few trebles just get a cheap AA vice Thompson makes a decent one. go to the fly shop bobbin wise i would buy a ceramic one as the metal ones have a tendancy to cut the thread. Now for thread that a tough question all people have their favorite and me too But i reccomend dansville or unithread. And feathers i like to use strung marabou for this application vs neck hackle marabou has a lot more action. There is a great guy on ebay (stores.ebay.com/miamivalleytackle) ( no affiliaton) where i get my stuff. The good thing about making your own dressed trebles is being able to make it in whatever color and length you want. You might also look into getting some Krystal Flash to throw in there make it real lively.

  5. So till playing with the new iawata. Still letting out a little more paint then i would like but poted a couple pics in the gallery ways to improve on these. Maybe a way to use the brush in a way i couldnt with my old one because i havent seen how this brush is so much better. But it may be my limited painting skills
  6. o i listed that i lost my set scre for my paasche. Weel this was the perfect excuse for my wife to let me get an iwata. So went to the store today and bought it. I am happy with the smoothness but i have to say I have been using a single action till now and having a real hard time controlling paint flow. I keep pulling it all the way back and spray way to much is there a way to change how much come out at the whole way back position or am i just gonna have to learn this now lol. Cant teach an old dog new tricks i guess cause i look like a newbie with this brush lol.

    Mann's Lemon Shad

    If the glitter is the problem that is an easy fix i dont even use gliiter that much. Instead Createx sells some pearlized colors that has parkle already mixed in just thin it and shoot it easy as pie if you take a look at some of my galley photos that is the pearlized paint at work no glitter.
