EXcept spelllng in this case is woolly as in woollybugger, woolly worm, or woolly mammoth. My favorite publisher says this in all his books.
Damp sponge does the same thing Bob. Just saying.
Bowl or cup of water does too. Don't use your scotch though! It would be a waste of alchol and you could be considered a fly scenter.
Well the good thing about scotch is that if the fishing is too bad you could start licking your flies. The tough part is keeping your friends away from them
Oh no! The spell check Nazi!
I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Maybe a photo of the pattern would help.
Nevermind, one was just posted.
Bob, do you really think you would feel it if it stuck you...?? You are one tenacious old dude!!
That last one is a pretty fat "thin" mint. I guess you can call patterns whatever you want, but it doesn't communicate the essence of the pattern. I'd call that a conehead woollybugger ( which is an excellent fly). IMO, Thin mint tends to have more of a leechy damselfly type profile and less of a crayfish streamer profile. Proportions can make or break fly patterns. Yeah, I know tomatos, tomaatos....
It's disconcerting reading Bob's post's here and thinking for a second that he's still with us. Had to check the dates to be sure...
I hear you boot
I did a double take too
One never knows Jamie... Bob was truly a character's character. The PHW 2-Fly wasn't quite the same without him last year!
