    Did my Hare's Ear Nymphs ever arrive? I mailed them on April the 30th. They should've been there by now.

    If they haven't, let me know, and will get another set out ASAP.

    If the lead is molded onto the hook, it's a jig. If it's tied on, it's a fly, if you fish it on a fly rod. If you cast it on a spinning rod, it's spin fishing with a fly, just like using a fly with a...

    Nice crawfish, but it's not a fly. It's a jig.

    I tie jigs, too, as well as make my own fishing lures.

    I'll try to submit it it as soon as I can get some time to do the tutorial. It would be cool if FAOL could post videos of patterns. That would be easier (for me, anyway...).

    The weight at the rear is because crawfish swim backwards, so you want the jigging motion to be at the rear, rather than the front of the fly. Crawfish land tail-first when they swim.
