Good night buddy and sweet dreams.
When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

What are you slackers doing now? It's been 2 hours since the last post in this thread -- get to work! And don't give me any of that "it's 3am, and I am safe and asleep" silliness, either. I can see on my clock plain as day that it's only 11pm!

I like the (Falsifly) olive hatch -- drad I missed that hatch too.:)


They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

John, don't despair. The olive hatch is known to be multi-brooded, meaning that partaking of it can be a season-long affair. On the bountiful gin-clear flow that Falsifly plies, it may well be a year-round encounter. ;)

Gonzo- You have come up short on two points. Yes, it is multi-brooded but it is also multi-mooded. And, it is more than a year-round encounter it is a life-time endeavor.

Apparently the Fish in PA didn't think the BHO(bead headed Obama) looked good enough to eat. Seems the CCC(Cased Clinton Caddis) Worked better at least on the older rainbows and younger brookies. The Browns still liked the looks of the BHO. I guess something smelled a little fishy with Obama's line. I guess Clinton is a better imitator.

I wonder which one big mouth's would prefer.

By the way, Anyone have photo's of those patterns?

I have nothing to say.
I have seen nothing more beautiful than the sunrise on a cold stream.

I don't think it would be a good idea for Mr. Obama to take up fly fishing. I'm worried if he does, the rest of the Windy City entourage will decide to follow suit. Then we'll have Rich Daley, Rod Blagoy..umm Rod Blagee..umm Rod Blagav...umm the Governor of Illinois, Gary Senise, Joan Cusack, R. Kelly and most worrisome of all, Mike Ditka all roaming around on our streams.

And somewhere along the lines, Ditka is all but certain to run into Joe Humphreys and that'll be like the asteroid Ceres colliding with the 3rd moon of Jupiter

I just don't think it would be good...

Scott, it's a wise man who knows when to leave well enough alone--wish I had the knack.

Lee, I wouldn't worry about Mike Ditka...umm, Mike Dyzcko...umm, dat guy dat played wit da Bears. I hear he's busy entertaining at his restaurant, smoking cigars, drinking wine, and (once again) trying to redefine what it means to be a tight end.

I have nothing to say, except perhaps "JOAN WULFF FOR PRESIDENT"!

Speaking of Ditka, here's a fun bit of trivia: When Obama's Republican opponent for U.S. senate got knocked out of the race by a scandal, and the Illinois Republicans were scrambling to find someone else to run against the new Dem superstar, they apparently asked Ditka to run and he turned them down.
