I posted this on another board but I thought you guys might enjoy. --------------JaD

After staying in a camp ground and fishing most of May in Central Pa, I finally got a chance to clean my truck.I was sweeping the floor and my wife stopped me. Cindi could not figure out why I had this three mile smile on my face. Well only a fly guy would understand, I was sweeping up yellow and brown spinners.
Under sworn oath the above is a true statement.

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.

Hey John, thanks for the call the other night. It was great to get a fishing report from the J!!

I hope you saved a few. I heard they're great in salads or lightly sauteed...

...or perhaps as a tasty variation on Konchu's wife's dun-and-Coke recipe. Hey John, I understand why you were smiling. After hitting the brown drake hatch on Skaneateles Lake just right a few times, I was picking the duns and spinners out of my vehicle and gear for weeks. It made me smile, too.

Nothing I'd like more than to be swallowed by a nice hatch right about now...back to work. Thanks for the glorious distraction
