Big (b-ig) unusually large, unnecessarily oversized, sexy (sek-zi) colorful, gaudy should attract fish flies.
I have been lucky enough to score a fairly good collection of the wonderful flies. How could a fish not be interested in such gaudy beauty?
I know ole Bigfoot Chester didn't make or pick the flies I bought today to add to the collection but I think wherever he is- he's saying, "Right on man".
The Coachman isn't exactly B-ig but in it's own sleek way I think it's sexy as all get out.
After more than 25 year break I'm back in the outdoors, aaahhhh. After such a long hiatus and now that the internet is rolling I have found a new haunt for the off time. I encourage anyone interested in fly fishing to check out The Fly Guys site. I feel slightly guilty I didn't buy these flies from them...mmmm sorry man.
It doesn't matter if you are able to spend 3 days or 3 hours walking a stream the time goes by too quickly. I'm hoping to spend just a little more time in the water before calling it a season. One last trip towards the Forks or beyond is in order.
