    maybe the hobbyists fly pattern is simply another variation of a fly he saw somewhere else, tied it something different than the one he saw and is not really a true "original" if there is even such a thing nowadays :confused::confused:

    does tying a fly using different materials than the original constitute a new "original"

    Getting past the philosophical question at hand. Big-E, do you have some pic's so we can judge for ourselves?

    Big E,

    Get over it. Suck it up and move on.

    I have had so many of my flies high jacked, I could cry you a river.

    I just look at the positive side. "They sure like what I tie" all my friends and most of the fly shops know I got screwed, and my sales have actually gone up :)
