Swamp Witch Betty gets a new wand and starts practisingwith it. Soon thereafter Hans Weilenmann's usually reliable website goes down. Coincidence? I think not! I fear that fly tying's loss is toad-dom's gain. I fear that Hans has become "collateral damage".
Betty, forget that rubbish in the Harry Potter movie. "Swish and flick" is ONLY for Spey Wands. Normal wands wand a crisper action.
(Somebody see if Hans wants some Blue Wing Olives. They're quite tasty...)
