    Good looking flies, Laurie!

    I'll bet the action on a dabbler in the water, on the strip, is very good at stimulating takes. I would think that a fast strip might me more effective than a slow one, due to the nature of the hackling.

    Does anyone use the pattern and fishih it accordingly here in North America? If no, why not and well any other thoughts or opinions on the Dabblers. Nice flies and thank you for sharing!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
