Believe it or Not
Went out to some new water this morning. The minnows weren't biting but the back swimmers were voracious. I caught two of these water boatman on tanago hooks. These water bugs were 3/8" to 1/2" long and aggressive. I brought this one home to photograph it. Should've left the hook in its mouth for believability.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
