JC, I read your "Flies Only" Report and was amazed at the results. It is a definate must read for all. It has opened up a new look at dry tying. The length of the split tails and the way it was balanced,The angles.

Your research, had to be a labor of love, and with Mr. Vincent Marinaro as a mentor !!

What can one say, except you where blessed.

Very impressive, and concise.

Thank you for that article

I look into... my fly box, and think about all the elements I should consider in choosing the perfect fly: water temperature, what stage of development the bugs are in, what the fish are eating right now. Then I remember what a guide told me: 'Ninety percent of what a trout eats is brown and fuzzy and about five-eighths of an inch long.' - Allison Moir.
