Are old men just aging,
overgrown boys? After all, disrobed, many of us do resemble (and act like, some say) enormous roly-poly babies after
we retire and lose our hair.
Here's one perspective.
This week’s fly is another for deep, cold fishing in early spring. You know, the kind usually left to younger
anglers. Rabbit fur is soft and wavy in the water, much like a leech swimming. An optional gold or black bead head can be
added for a little weight and flash. Simple but effective!
Hook:River Magic 4XL Streamer Hook – Size 4
Tail & Wing: Leech colored rabbit strip,
tied to hook shankat tail and head positions
Head:Bead optional. Black thread finished with 2 coats of head cement.
