"Jerry" what's the scoop and who is Jerry? Not trying to be rude, I just don't know.I tie most of my flies, and take them with me when I travel. After all, where doesn't an Adams work well in our country? The flies that I tie, at least one or two will work no matter where I am. At least that's what I have found.
But there are rare occasions where I will buy a fly because I might want to try it out, or it looks like something I may want to tie in the future. I have bought flies from our friend Jerry here on this forum, but not because I needed any, I simply believe in his cause, and they make great gifts as well.
