Default FLY TESTER.

Ok CLIFF, We can do that, how many do you want 500 !
Will not of course include the ones l ( KNOW )catch fish, secret weapons.

There was a very well known angler in the UK by the name of Richard Walker. He came to notice when he caught the record carp at that time, fact the fish was a exibit in the London zoo for years, called Clarissa, if l recall.
Anyway, he wrote a book for fly patterns, In it he says that no fly included had caught less tha 50 fish, trout of course, no warm water species in the UK.

50 fly paterns are lisetd in that book- 2,500 fish needed. I guess Richard did not know of the White river, would not take long to fill that compliment.

Ok, you guys get the flies off to Cliff.


Davy.
