Please Note: PayPal is having a problem with the Handling Charge, which should be $4 for every order. For some reason, a few orders are not getting the charge. I have contacted PayPal, but until the problem is corrected I will send a PayPal invoice following any order that does not reflect the $4 handling charge.

Killer Strikes Again

by Morgan Lyle
(New York)

I haven't changed flies in the last three trips. I'm not sure I still remember how to tie a clinch knot. Connected with this guy Saturday, on my way back from a bamboo rod casting competition in the Catskills. (Observing, not competing.)

What can I say?

It's a great fly!

Whether they think its a scud or a cranefly larva or just a plump piece of protein, it does catch fish.

It unfortunately catches trees, too, so I've never been able to keep the same fly for three trips. I keep getting refresher courses in knot tying.

Morgan is convinced, but for anyone else out there who has not yet tried this fly - try it. It really is that good. If you tie your own flies, take a look at the Killer Bug "One Fly" tying kit - it has all you need to get started. If you don't tie your own flies, I'll get caught up with current orders and have them available again in mid-September.
