Funny, I looked back at some old pics of mine from here..found a jig fly dating from October 2009. Consisted of rabbit, tail and head, some flash, rubber legs, weighted eyes and a jig hook. Sound familiar???? lol
Oh and I found a single stage intruder dated 2008 ... lmfao
I love it when this thread pops up. Always a good read.
Lets face it though. Until aliens provide us with a plethora of new to us materials or Sasquatch hair makes it on the market, where all just tying variations of probably less than 100 base fly patterns.
I can say this as the only truly innovative fly tier on of WFF with my Mike Pence Fly Fly. I’m like the Elon Musk of fly tying over here.
