My shortest post ever

I just read Tami Curtis' comment re: "What lure did I use" and it struck me - I assume everyone reading knows what I'm referring to when I say the name of a fly, but they probably don't. So - this is what I was using on the trout stream Thursday. NOTE - the pink San Juan Worm is there for comparison to the "Stripper Pole" variety I used. The others are a size 16 tan bead head scud (lower right) and a size 18 bead head rubber-legged flashback Copper John (upper right). the rainbows came on the worm; the smaller wild browns on the scud, and the largest brown on the Copper John.

Hey Joe. You're right. I think I might add that as part of a post for those out there like Tami. A good "heads up".

Excellent point. I too have some "followers" that probably do not know what fly or "lure" I am talking about.

I want to say thanks for doing this post as I did not have a clue to what you were talkin' about!

See, I'm one step closer to being a fisher chick too...

Thanks again!

Holy Cow! I had no idea that there were lures that looked the 2 left ones.

The top right looks very real, at first i thought you accidentally took the photo with a real fly/mosquito on the table.

Interesting...gets me thinking...hmmm...
I'm curious if I could drop shot a fly and catch a bass!
