Sometimes if I'm doing well at RR a guy will ask what I'm using, which I show and get the comment "I never saw anything like that before" or "what's that called?" I just shrug and say "bait"

And y'all call ME a jackass ?  😂

There was a discussion once way back when on 'suggestive" patterns. With my skills at the vise, my scuds are suggestive at best. But I can tie several in a short period of time. Pick out the best looking ones and head to the creek.

I assumed Sandy got the best looking flies and you got the "2nds".
