    Having seen trout strike at a cigarette butt I do not believe that there is any such thing as a fly that won't catch fish. Of course some are not much better than a cigarette butt.

    In a Vacuum the two would land simultaneously. I believe that in the atmosphere the fired bullet would get some lift immediately out of the barrel and would hit a fraction of a second or so later.

    If I was fishing someplace where I thought I needed a handgun to be safe I would leave. If I knew I was going into a gunfight I'd pack both of my Ithica model 37s. They don't conceal very well but...

    Whew! I get nervous when a woman is quiet too long. That's not natural and usually means I'm in trouble. Seriously, It's a little worrying when you disappear. I always hope your still all right.

    I guess that I should add that the Jordan is a small river. 7/8 foot fly rods for 3 or 4 weight lines work well. If salmon are in the river not much else will be active. They require a nine weight...

    Before tossing the tippet get someone else to tie a knot with it and test the result. If it still slips it is probably a problem with the tippet. If it doesn't the problem may be in your knot tying.
