Many a fly shop counter has heard the debates and the arguments.
“Those aren’t flies.”
“If it is within the law, it is a fly.”
“That’s a lure.”
“You’re just jealous you can’t catch as many fish.”
…and so on.
In this episode I take a brief look at the spectrum of fly authenticity. I attempt to get at the root of the quarrel, and try my hand at some conflict resolution.
However, I also share how I fish some of these trashy and cheesy patterns from time to time. Maybe you’ll scoff. Maybe you’ll cheer. Hopefully you’ll be entertained.
