"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson


There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Very common here too. Great fly to mimick size wise even if no hatch obvious.
