    Default Primitive Fly Fishing ???

    Anyone ever try this… ‘Macedonian gorget’ (knapped shell and a tuft of wool) or knife-shaved stick, bootlaces (or similar) and an impromptu fly?

    Not for about 2500 years.
    Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...

    Whoa,

    I confess to being a bit of old school traditionalist but they had vinyl coated lines by Gladding and nylon mono when I got into this.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Probably only needed the paperclip and cheese.

    The mardi gras beads were the line. But yes I probably could have just dipped the paper clip in with my fingers. Bream are like piranhas around here. I have to try harder NOT to catch them.

    Primitive? I picture a lot of rocks being thrown for this.
