    Can I jump in and expand this to include what knot works best for folks with arthritic fingers? I find that tying on a fly is no longer as automatic as it used to be and too often the final test tug...

    it's really strange

    My right arm is in a sling so can't close the button on my admittedly too tight jeans. Since I've been wearing them around the bottom of my briefs I have this strange compulsion to chant obscene...

    I think almost all experienced fly fishers carry some soft hackles and fly tyers all tie them. The very simplicity of tying and presentation that makes them so universally effective doesn't leave a...
