I should have been clear that I was not ranting on you, and I now offer my sincerest appology for not making that clear. Your flies are very nicely tied and well composed as usual displaying your well-developed tying skills. You are correct that my preference for unweighted flies is just that, a preference and not something that is more ethical than weighted flies.

I have seen some disgusting examples of heavily weighted flies with long leaders being used to line fish (for example targeting chinook at the mouth of Deer Creek when there is no legal chinook season on the Stilly) and this overshadowed my sense of civility and fair play.
