    I think the Green Rock Worm (how ever it's tied) has to be the Rodney Dangerfield fly.
    No other fly this good ever got so little attention, for going on forever.
    One of a million anecdotal examples would have to be, for instance, Bob Jacklin's recent 10lb
    brown, caught in the current coming into Quake Lake, with video cameras rolling;
    Caught on a Green Rock Worm.
