I read the article and am probably oafish enough that I've just never thought about it. I suppose I chuckled the first time I read some of those names of fly patterns and then let it go. I'm not too easily offended. So I am more interested in how women feel about the use of such names for fly patterns, especially women who fish. If it bothers them, then I'll take that as the signal that it's offensive and should be avoided.
With this Covid thing. People have to much free time because of no work or they don't want to work now because the New Pres will pay them all to stay home. It boils down to people over thinking on subjects that don't mean shit. I just wonder some times why I even bother to read this shit.
If the name of a fly pattern bothers you just do not fish with it. That seems simple enough that even snowflakes should be able to get it. Then snowflakes should not be sticking sharp objects in the mouth of fish to begin with.
