    I have now spent more time than I ever thought I would trying to think about where my boys could have put all the dogs tennis balls.

    I don't see this as a hijack, just a "digging into the details of a certain pattern". In this case a pattern that I affectionately call "acronym"!

    I just realized that I spelled "fly" wrong in the thread title. I was tired!


    p.s. Now someone show me how to tie a weenie

    Here's a link to a tutorial on tying the infamous "green weenie". Good close-up camera work and instructions. There are a few other good patterns at this sits so you might want to poke around.

    Be sure to scroll all the way thru to see the traditional weenie. This tutorial is for the bead head green weenie, but there's a pic at the bottom showing the non-beadhead version. I like this guy's site because he also gives you a brief history and rationale behind each fly.
