all is well in the midwest... except...


thee FW Daily News is on the story:

A new controversy is flaring up along our local trout streams. It involves a hot fly that attracts trout like iron filings to a magnet.

Some fly fishermen declare the killer pattern profanes fly-fishing’s sacred traditions. They declare its use is abhorrent, marking the end of civilization as we know it. Others are more relaxed, viewing its appearance on our local waters as a passing fancy, an aberration in the evolution of fly-fishing that soon will fade into oblivion, like the Studebaker automobile.

Who is right?

More importantly, what is the name of the fly?

Fly fishing has been missing propellers for quite some time. What a breath of fresh air.

To think that flies with spinners or propellers is some kind of affront to the traditions of fly fishing is ridiculous. Fly's with spinners and props have been around for a long time. Like many things they come in and out of fashion, but so what. If a guy enjoys fishing them, and is fishing within the reg's, leave him the fuck alone.

I would hope they work better than those shitty Pettijean magic heads that came out a couple years ago.

Those look like sweet 'gill flies.
