FLY OR NOT.
Steve, that is exactly what l am saying, it is how you yourself make that decision.
Further to this l would like for more posts with your views regarding this, it is a very interesting topic.
Olliver Kite who was kind of in the same league as Frank Sawyer (Pheasant tail nymph ) used a bare hook on the chalk streams of England.
I know that works, l have done it myself !!!!
So what do you think a fly should contain by way of material used in so far as classifying it as a LEGITIMATE FLY ?
