Default My Copper John for panfish ....

I ordered John Barr's book but evidently can't wait for it to arrive. It's probably a good thing that panfish aren't picky.

Nice fly! That might even work on a trout or two.

Well I actually got to try this fly today. Two fish (a perch and a creek chub) in three casts and then I snapped it off on a backcast.

Back to the bench.
