Thats what I thought, what will happen to the art of dry fly tying and fishing ? I remember forty years ago the dry fly only older gentlemen would look down on the wet fly, nymph, spinner, and bait fisherman in about that order. Me being in my early teens I would sneak around the next river bend before I put on my wets and nymphs so they would not at least talk to me when I ran into them again on the river. They were the original purist fly fisherman, not many left today, I think.
Nothing like a summer day figuring out what they are rising to, matching the hatch, and then executing successfully.
Thats it, have to do more dry fly fishing this year !!!!
I am doing the Atlantic Salmon fly swap, bet there will be no dry flies.
