Re: Hare's Lug & Plover Drake

Very nice looking fly.

Got to use them today William.
All but one fish took these wingless wets. Thank goodness!

Re: Holiday staples

Hi Doug, Thanks for your comments and encouragement. Right now I'm enjoying a fuller look to these flies. Fish sure do take the thin, slim models but I'm liking the look of these more.
