Larger flies swung in fast current may push back a bit but won't collapse like many believe. Propping the hackles up...

Re: Fuzzle Flymph

It was great. Bob joined Ronr and I at Jim’s for about 3 days. We had a nice time and fishing was good. Even a great Tuesday Tying night. We fished the west fork and mostly between the lakes. Caught some nice fish and lost better ones.
