Ooooo that smell!

You all know how a fish's sence of smell is great, right? (as the old adege (SP?) goes, a dog can smell 1000 times better than a person and a fish can smell 1000 times better than a dog!)

Well, for more luck with those new flies, I have been taking them and putting them in a closed coffee can with a worm and some dirt to try and get that yuppy worm goo all over them.

Then, I clean them off with a light washing under the faucet and put them in the fly box. That way, more than just the look is going to attract those big fella's...
