A celebration of the well-chewed fly
I think from a durability stand point I get it. I'm personally old school,I do not like flies that are basically glue ,paint and wire. One of the reasons I tie my own is I love using natural materials and like the challenge of trying to create something that looks like something Mother Nature has created. I know I'll never the anything like that.thanks for the video,you never know what's next in fly tying.
I did not know that you were French!
Hmmm... well... not my first choice. Wouldn't want to bang myself in the back of the head with it. However do consider it as legit as anything. There has always been an array of baits that are not flies, yet designed to be presented with fly tackle -- particularly (not too long ago)before the appearance of spinning reels after WWII. When I was a kid we fished live bait, small spinners, poppers, tiny bass plugs (these have disappeared from the market) and, of course, the famous fly Rod Flatfish. Nowdays, seems most use fly tackle to fish jigs under bobbers (yes, bead-heads are jigs, because they move as jigs). But the concept is nothing new. Hey, fun for everybody.
Definitely not a guide fly - lol!
