    'Tis the sincerest form of flattery.

    Can you - or does anyone -actually patent fly patterns or is it just considered poor form to mass-produce someone else's original pattern without contacting and/or compensating them?

    Jim Teeny patented his Teeny Nymph many years ago. I never patented it and don't make a cent off those that are sold. This way they go to whatever shop I work at. Kinda like little dogs.

    Impostors are easy to spot. Good thing we know where the authentic poppers come from.

    Mine are from Orvis of Bellevue, well the one I have left (now). Had four. Lasted three years or more. Guess I need to to get a few more....so a trip to Bellevue. What's a good time to hit store and avoid that horrible traffic? 55 minutes tonight @ 515 pm to go from 124th in Kirkland to Kenmore...about 5 miles. :mad:

    Yes, too floppy. Bow wakes will push it aside at the strike

    Being a patent attorney, I can opine that the US patent laws (unfortunately) are not in Leland's favor. If Leland's flies have been used in public for more than 1 year and Leland does not already have a patent on the design, then the design has become "public domain"

    Did today and it was a perfect time, got a couple poppers (there were only three left I think) and few other flies. It has been a little while since I have been there. Really nice selection of flies, and I like the way the reels are mounted on the wall so you can touch and play with them w/o bothering someone to pull them out of the typical glass counter display. I had limited time today, but I think I need to go back and check out more. Thanks

    You had your face buried in the dry fly selection when I arrived and then you were in the back room for most of my visit, a guy in sandals assisted me a bit. You came out and talked fly line with me a bit and then rang me up and we talked briefly about PNP, Meadowdale Beach, Picnic Point, Karkeek, but there were a sleuth of women waiting to purchase items, plus I had to get back to my wife before she spent to much at Nordstrom's. I do like the set-up you guys have there. Nice work!
