I have a stonefly left over from a batch of unknown origin that has been attached to my desk lamp for prob 8 years. My intention was to figure out how the hell it was tied and replicate, since apparently the pattern fished well. A buncha years later my mind has decided to remain convinced that this pattern caught every fish in the river. Don't ask me which river, cuz I have no idea. Really. Initially, said fly sat unreplicated because I'm too lazy and forgetful. Now it is just a goddam legendary reminder that if I had only taken the time to replicate the pattern, my last fishing trip woulda been more perfect. I need that kind of hope in my life.
Its been noted here that newbies sometimes get a rough treatment. Here is one response, written by Old Dog, that might help those thinking of making their first post understand a little bit about this place. After you read this take a moment (or two or three) and look around and get a sense of this place. If you're still interested make your intro and join the fray. —Jed
