    I like the fly. It's a modernized version of the Shenk's Minnow - still one of my favorite patterns to tie and fish for smallmouth bass and panfish.

    Thank you Scott and Hans but I still have much to learn.

    Hans - nice tip on the name tag. With the big placard on the table, the name tag is not needed.
