I was going to second the comment on the Prince too. George Daniels fishes it, and I'm sure he knows how to catch a fish or two, but I haven't tied one yet. I keep saying I'll give it a try, but so far other flies have filled my boxes.

What's in a name? Maybe that has something to do with it as well. I know people have spoke about the confidence in the fly you fish and the impact that may have... If we can take anything from this thread, maybe it is that you can't judge a book (fly) by its cover. We all know the variables of this fly fishing thing can be daunting and throw a wrench into our so-called systems...

Perhaps this could be a lesson for life experiences. Whether it is fly fishing or life in general, maybe we should all try something new tomorrow, or give something a second chance!
