Mike, I can see how those flies would attract some fish. Ugly is not a bad thing when it comes to flies .

John, I think I got one of your white dragonflies in a fly swap a while back. Not sure if I still have it .

I don't expect to catch many small fish on that pink dragonfly because it's tied on a bass bug hook and has a heavy mono weed guard. I'm hoping to try it out on some fish that will just engulf it rather than nip at it. The damselfly is tied on a smaller hook and would probably nab some of those little fish, but I'm not sure how durable it is so I'm saving it for a good dragonfly day when I can see bass jumping for them.

The farther you can cast, the easier it is for a fish to take you into your backing. I seldom see my backing . . .
