    Well there's a "Freudian slip" if I ever saw one.

    So close to page 25... hopefully this post will do the trick.

    Its not the size of the wand, its the magic in the wand.
    ( unless the wand happens to be smaller than average) :D

    Negative! It's gear that is used to flyfish properly. Unlike a friggin' bobber and whatever you wannabes like to huck.​

    I was fishing the Bogey, and ran into this guy, who I think now hates the Yarnie. His buddy wasn't watching where he was casting and impaled with the hook. By coincidence, the barb wasn't pinched either. I used the old mono hook removal trick on him and sent him on his merry way.

    Ouch! Another good reason to not fish near other people. I'm enough hazard to myself. I don't need some other guy to snag me with a yarnie, fly, or anything else, barbed or barbless.

    almost to 25 pages, come on, you can do it...

    All I know is this: I'm going fishing today. Chances are, I'll be swinging that lure...I mean fly with the marabou, trailing hook and bead in my other post...perhaps nymphing with a pink bugger for a little bit both with and without an indi...I mean bobber....All done on a fly rod with the fly line carrying those "flies" at the terminal end..all while this silly debate rages on.

    Cheers

    I'm fishing the Skagit tomorrow so I am currently tying up a butt load of "yarnies" to swing for brats.

    Your fishing for Bratwurst? Is that really fly fishing?
