    I should probably be tying my waterboatman flies with a third leg now to represent their shlongs.

    Oh where, oh where, do you find these things Larry? This made my day, I thought I'd heard something last time there was a boatman hatch....now I know it wasn't my ears ringing.

    I wonder if trout are attracted to the noise. Might be the noisy penis gets the trout but the quiet penis gets the boatwoman.

    H h a h hahah hha hah Oh geez! That is hilarious. There's a cartoon in there but it isn't general knowledge that a water boatman has such a unique ability, so most anglers wouldn't get the bit. I certainly had no idea.

    However, I thought I've heard tiny tunes coming from the shoreline in the past but I had no idea it was a waterboatman was playing his piccolo.

    I found this while looking for various photos of colors of beetles for the Beetle-Mania fly swap. This may prove "useful" in more ways than one!
    Ha!

    Well Gene, you can add your cartoon to this thread. We would all get it!
    I can think of a few funny poses of a man in waders, while his wife is standing on the shoreline wondering what that sound is!

    I wonder if it changes the pitch if they are circumcised?

    Of course you guys know... we'll have a hell of a time imitating a male waterboatman with a fly pattern.
