    Re: Insect Identification

    Thanks Matt!

    Haha I (hangs head) have tried mop flies with all the rage surrounding them, but found them less productive than more traditional flies....proud to say I don't currently have any in my fly boxes - now Barleywine can't blame me for not being more of a traditionalist

    Who needs a Mop when you can clean up with a Shop Vac?

    That is correct, you win the Wulff Triangle Taper fly line along with a free float from Dairy Queen.
