FTOTY Ethical Question in The Fly Tying Bench Posted November 17, 2009 · Report reply No Pelhament, If you really start looking back some one already tied the bug, maybe even 300 years ago. All of us voters can tell a well tied fly and most can tell a difficult pattern well done. The spirit I believe of the FTOY is to push your skills and have fun. Go for it, I would warn that copying a Day5 fly might have adverse effects. Joking Matt, Joking! Also, if Bruce D. brings out a Frog, I can tell you from personal experience, I have not seen better, ever! Cheers, Futzer.
