    OK. Verrry clever, Big_E!;) You must be in cahoots with Bernanke. I see how it goes. You offer to give away free flies and gets lots of raised hands. The winner of these fine flies will head out and take them fishing. She or he will have to burn some gas, maybe stop off and buy lunch. They might use up some leader material and have to buy more. Perhaps they'll find some fish and have a great time, post their results here, and stimulate other forum members to head out fishing, spending their hard-earned money and stimulating local economies....until the fishing sours.
    Although these flies that you are giving away at first appear to be "free," in the end they are going to cost the recipient dearly, and create a boom and bust fishing stimulus!:D

    Free is much cheaper than what they charge for flies at fly shops.

    Now that I have met you Big-E, having a few of your flies will be meaningful.
    I'M IN.

    I'm NOT in. I have so many flies now, I don't know if I'll ever need to buy anymore.
