I have several hats I wear to work and the other day wore one with various flies stuck in it.

So I'm shopping for a new back brace (lumbar, hard to find) and a guy working there who is asisting me says, "flashback pheasant tail"....

Go figure?

So it turns out it is a fellow on this forum occasionally and on other forums that "I've known through cyberspace for several years"!

Seems I mailed him some flies a few years ago when I still lived in Maine and well I spose I ought to walk around with flies in my hat more often!
