My Opinion

I am of the sincere opinion that it is virtually impossible to concoct a pattern or devise a fly that has not been made at least once before.  Some of the latest developments, according to the real historians, are not new at all, but are in more than a few instances, merely new names applied to patterns as old as ninety-five years or more.
