    A better way is to simply try it with each of the weights listed, and see which one you prefer. There is no "optimal" that applies to everyone, at every casting distance, with every size fly.

    I can't tell you exactly, but it's been within the last decade. Ron Eagle Elk, who used to be on this forum regularly, worked with him there last summer. Many of the folks from another forum to...

    Quite true. Learning to cast left got me to think more about the basic mechanics, not what muscle-memory from decades years ago is telling me to do.

    Have you used it? Would you recommend it to someone with limited or no use of one hand? (I'm thinking Project Healing Waters here.) What's the price range?

    I suppose it also make a difference which BOOK. If he'd read Leonard Wright's Fishing the Dry Fly as a Living Insect (for example) he might have had a different opinion.

    You're right; books are a...

    No, I agree. Most teams would have just folded mentally after that trouncing. The fact that they almost tied it was very impressive.

    I thought they should have just given the series to them after the 9 run inning in the first game. I was surprised the Cavs managed to make it a close game.

    It's a technique that British tyers seem to use more frequently than American. There's a good article in this month's Fly Fishing and Fly Tying (the British one) on Clyde style wet flies that shows...

    You'd be surprised at how well a Pale Evening Dun/Little Marryat works during a sulfur hatch/spinner fall. Put floatant on it, add a soft hackle 18 inches below, cast upstream. It lies flat on the...

    The stream that I fish the most (like at least once a week, 12 months a year) is the Gunpowder Falls in Maryland. It's a medium-sized tailwater with 4000 wild brown trout per mile. Lots of long...

    More often upsteam or up and across, with a very short line; I grease my top dropper and leader. Of course if the fish want it the other way, I'm willing to oblige.

    The slate drake (Isonychia bicolor), aka iso, aka leadwing.

    Agreed about Cotton, but then again, I seldom fish winged wets more than an inch or so deep, and often floating or skimming the surface....

    They could be functional somehow, but I don't think it's to keep the fly from rolling. A wingless wet is "in the round" and it really doesn't matter much if it were to roll. I also think that 1x gut...

    I was under that impression for a long time, but the more I pore over quaint and curious volumes of forgotten lore, the less convinced I am. Ronalds included a number of caddis flies in a Fly...

    Yes, but it was on the page about Emphemerellidae, not epeorus (which are Heptigeniidae), two very different sets of insects. The quote I included was from the epeorus page (which was what the...

    You mean the part where he says "All Epeorus duns emerge from their nymphal shucks below the surface, often while still attached to the stream bed. Most species (with the exception of Epeorus...

    It was Bergman's that I'm talking about (1939). Leisenring's book ("The Art of Tying the Wet Fly") was 1941. (Both of course had later editions.)

    Yes, it does, by two years. Leisenring, however didn't use the term "flymph"; he called them "wet flies". Hidy added the term "flymph" for the 1971 edition. Historically, wingless wets were called...
