  1. Just wanted us to cover all the "bases".
     
  2. <drumroll please> It's the designated hitter stonefly pattern.
     
  3. At this point I'm pretty well stumped but I have a feeling that you have to follow the infield fly rule to tie it.

  4. No idea here. This better be a danged good fly! :D
     
  5. We need Mr Ficklin to confirm but here's what I found


    The Designated Hitter Skwala is a fantastically attractive and durable imitation of an emergent or adult Skwala stonefly.
     
  6. He said it was a traditional wet fly pattern... however, Bill, you may have nailed it.
     
  7. Good one Jim.

  8. Thanks, Tim. The Major, Wickham's Fancy & Potts flies represent great memories for me . . .
     
  9. Major Pitcher??? Weird. I looked for "Pitcher" as part of the name of a wet fly pattern and found zippo.

    Interesting.

    That's one for Jim.
     
  10. Must be the "designated hitter" didn't exist in the 1890's.
