Last week I went fishing for smallies for the first time this year and noticed I was down to one measly diver. Time to get tying. This one's a size 2 on a Gamakatsu B10S. There's a laser dub collar but it almost disappeared under the deer. The belly is all rusty orange and the top is a mix of brown, olive and dingy yellow. There's a local creek that runs really clear this fly's destined for. The bass in it seem to really like these colors.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
