Random Thoughts About Fishing: I've been thinking about how to fish this pattern, and look forward to fishing it as both a wet fly (untreated/fished below the surface) and as an emerger (treating the front half with Frog's Fanny floatant and fishing the fly suspended in the surface film). The shagg...
