    Because Matt uses us as Guinea Pigs to see if the pattern works. He has never fished it before and thinks these up after a few adult beverages.

    Besides, i always liked Tirco Mikes flies better.

    I would have been that dry fly guinea pig and yes, we were recently drinking some adult beverages together just before the water got too damned warm to fish.

    This is exactly what i am talking about. He liquors you up then talks you into trying these concoctions. Good thing the warm water saved you from such embarassment.

    After a few cheap Scotchs from the Hancock Liquor store he forgets what he wants to see you experiment with. Just ignore him and dont be a pawn in his game. He is like the Dr Oz of NEFF, he is always coming up with a new way to catch fish with a special fly. Last year it was a sulpher emerger tied with elk hair and a yellow collar. I fell into his trap tied some up, and if it were not for my exceptional casting skills i never would have caught all those fish while the other guys down stream were standing there with their poles in their hand.
