A Purist in the Making?

I just remembered this from the Big Brother outing. You guys should get a kick out of it:

After we returned to the causeway and the little brothers were presented with their gifts, I walked back towards the car with one of them as he was examining the contents of the fly box prepared by Striblue. He recognized the crab right away and then asked me what the others were, so I pointed out the the squid and baitfish imitations. Then he asked, "So why do they call them flies when they don't look anything like a fly?" I couldn't help but laugh. I told him that there are other fly fishermen out there who feel the same way!
