    He may be lost, but I don't think it's a trico. Tricos have three tails, and a body that only extends to just past the trailing edge of the wing.

    Yeah, and wished I hadn't wasted my money. It's mostly content-free, except for an occasional article by Mike Valla. The freebee they give out in fly shops (Mid-Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide) is far...

    The magazine has always been way too focused on the West for my taste. There's usually not much of interest for an East Coast angler. Otherwise, it's well done.

    His Secret Service man taught him to fish, and after that he made a point of being photographed as often as possible while fishing -- but that was after he was president.

    I agree, (I fish generic flies more than anything) but there's no harm in imitating something that's there, either. Either way, "leech" patterns needn't be restricted to still waters.

    It's nominally equivalent to a modern 6 weight, although with the way line weights have crept up, it may very well cast better with a 5. And with South Bend especially, two of the same model rod,...
