OK, this is the third thread in a week about glow-in-the-dark flies. Did World War III already happen and I just missed the news? Or are all you PA boys just used to fishing off Three Mile Island?

Sorry, Bowmandjk, for the sarcasm - you don't deserve it (though Louis does for starting all this nonsense). I have heard of fluorescent flies doing well up there, although I can't say I've never fished them myself. I seem to remember a popular one that looked like a big stonefly nymph with a fluorescent green body and black hackle and wingcase, but my memory is pretty poor. I should really just shut up and let more knowledgable voices guide you...
