Welcome back to the new NEFF. Take a break from Twitter and Facebook. You don't go to Dicks for your fly fishing gear, you go to your local fly fishing store. Enjoy!

Lost a brand new pair of those big orvis hemostats (forceps) on the big flat brook a couple weeks ago, this was about 75yards above the head of 'wormers pool'.

I swear I go through forceps faster than leaders...

Attach them to a zinger that is attached to your vest and you'll never lose another pair again.

Lol it actually was on a zinger AND clamped on my FP Wasatch where there's a spot to put them so there not flailing around when your walking, but the clasp on my zinger must have opened up some how AND my forceps magically opened up.

The trout gods don't like when I buy fancy things.. haha

Put a drop of 5-minute epoxy on your zinger clasp and you'll never have that problem again!

Trout guy, I just clip the business end of the hemo to my shirt pocket, wader suspender or any other loose clothing. It has worked for me very well.

Who got bit by a monkey?
I grow my thumb and index fingernails out 2" and file them to a point. Therefore no need for hemostats. Also makes for excellent nose-picking.

i would write them in a book as a lose... some people need more reasons to buy more tying stuff... me personally would throw a pair in the cart along with 5 or 6 materials and if asked the price of the hemos went up like crazy

Not wanting to be a know it all but I think you might mean "Warner's Pool" if it is the big pool just off of Rte 206 where you take the left hand diagonal and cross a concrete bridge - the pool is about 1/2 a mile downstream. We used to pronounce it "Werner's Pool".

Sorry you lost your new forceps.

Oh im quite aware of its proper name, I was just calling it "wormer's pool because alot of spin fishermen hit it hard with live bait the first 2 weeks in the season when its not just fly fishing only
