Great program. Thanks for having Charlie on. 6pm is a little early for me on the west coast so I missed the beginning but I will definitely download the mp3 later in the week when it's available. I especially like hearing Charlie describe the parachute tie-off (even without pictures!) Great job! It's been a while since I bought a tying book but I'll add Charlie's! And as always, great job hosting Dave!

Excellent show tonight with Charlie Craven. I learned a lot concerning major issues in fly tying. I will be sure to pick up his book in the near future. Please have Charlie back as a guest in the winter months when most of us would be spending more time tying.

I enjoyed it. I'm right/left handed more right than left. After tying for almost forty years I'm not going southpaw. However it does make a person think about it. I like his line of reason about going with one fly learn that then add to it.

I thought it Kicked Ass! From a long time fan of the show. I've listened to EVERY aaff podcast and some of the classics like Edrington shows I can almost recite from memory. I had waited for last night's show and Charlie Craven did not disappoint. Great show, packed with info. I can't wait to listen to it again.

Great broadcast, enjoyed all of it. Keep up the good work. Have you given any thought to having Brian Chan, from Kamloops B.C. I know that you had Phil Rowley on, but both have there own great ideas on fly fishing stillwaters.

Charlie was challenged to describe in words many techniques that are best described with photos ..... he did a great job! I've referred to his website many times for patterns and it's a terrific resource.

Enjoyed the show.."it`s the journey not the destination" all the prep. ie fly tying, gearing up, learning about the sport are as important to me as getting on the water...at least until that first tug

Charlie Craven is a fascinating speaker on this topic. Please ask him back since I feel he has a lot more to teach on this topic. I have had his web sight in my favorites and use it for instruction, and to sort out the proper technique of classic fly patterns. You have sparked my interest regarding Charlie's book "Basic Fly tying." I have not considered myself a novice but I am sure there is much I can learn from Charlie and others. I feel that I need his book for my personal library. Thanks to the sponsors for allowing your format of teaching. I listened to the rebroadcast on the internet since I was working at the time of the live Wednesday broadcast. It has advantages since you can go back in time to listen to a section that you need clarification. Keep up the quality work.

This was my fist time to listen to your show. I enjoyed it. I checked out your show archive and see that I have a lot of catching up to do. I'm so glad to have found your web site and I'm looking forward to future shows.

I appreciated very much this session. Not only was the show valuable, I visited Mr. Craven's website and found it very useful. Thanks for what you do bringing these sessions to us. I can't listen on time being in Hawaii but being able to get the broadcasts later is a great treat.

I wasnt to thank you for answering my question. I am planning o learning how to tie flies in the future and am just trying to develop a plan for it.

I loved the fly tying show! I was very pleasantly surprised at the information that Charlie had to share and I was also pleased about the great questions that came into the show from the listeners. Please keep up the great job with the show, I really love it!! I also think you should have Terry and Roxanne Wilson on the show to talk about a very underrated fish, the Bluegill. Rich Sorgaard

I listen to your show on my iPod and really enjoy the in depth discussions about fly fishing. Your guest are knowlegable and interesting. Thanks for your efforts.

  Rick Coffman

GREAT SHOW!! Worth staying up late to hear.

  Mark Kalin

I couldn't imagine how something as visual as fly tying could possibly be discussed so as to make sense on a radio broadcast. I am now a believer, although, as a newcomer, I still need some sort of fly tying dictionary. This was an excellent show! I also have two Christmas gift suggestions: Charlie's book and the Peak (spelling?) vise. Thanks very much for the whole series of shows.
