I am going to be gone for a week or so, and I want you to show me your best dry fly pattern. When I get back I will look through all of them, and pick the best one. The winner will get 5 long fox strips (rabbit strips, but fox fur.)

Please take this seriously, and PLEASE don't stray off subject. Good luck! Please don't ignore this because I'm 12.

2. It's the deckhand's fault

Not, technically, a "dry fly" but it's the surface presentation I catch a lot of fish on.
If I win, give the prize to second place.

Have to agree.

<p>Instead of a sign that says 'do not disturb' I need one that says 'already disturbed, proceed with caution'

I don't call it getting old, I call it outliving the warranty
