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.

http://www.flyguysoutfitting.com/greenieweenie.html

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.
