Take someone fly fishing today and they say: "This is nothing like the
movie"  Of course,  they're right!. Today fly fishing consists of flipping
a nymph 10ft with a 10ft rod.  Forget about casting.  Some will only
trout fish and never learn to cast a fly rod.  Today it is tie on a nymph
and catch as many as you can as fast as you can,  and don't forget to
keep score.  I feel bad for young people today.  They will never get to
see what fly fishing was really like,  unless, of course,  they watch
Marking their territory like a dog with red flags,  trampling the stream
and releasing trout that are sure to expire anyway.

When you create your own flies, make sure someone has
not already done it and named it. Don't be like Jeff B. Dick
who stole the white zonker to mention one! Give proper
credit where it is due!
