Last time I checked, all of my flies... even the cutwing no-hackles, have a colossal curved spike coming out of their rectum.

Trout love terrestrials, such as hoppers, crickets, beetles and ants. They also love oakworms, or green inchworms. Maybe even more than the others. All the others have a hard chitin exoskeleton, which is probably not digestable. An inchworm is all juicy meat. An inchworm imitation, fished in the same way you fish other terrestrials, is very effective,.

So, are you saying that all flies prove definitively how stupid trout are, so long as they have a hook in them?

I choose not to personify trout.

Best definition ever.

Ya know, I think rising through the water column to take a feather imitation makes them pretty dumb.

So there. Anything that floats is a junk fly. This opinion is officially certified by Jack's definition of a junk fly.

I tried to use this example to my brother in law to illustrate why the tippet diameter had little effect on visibility, and all the effect on drag.

I gave up.

I guess I'll have to try them out to see what all the fuss is about. What about sizes?

I love "Junk" flies! Easy to tie and catch fish. What more can you ask for. I caught my largest "Wild" Brown this year on a "Junk" fly.

Why is "wild" in quotes? Possible escapee?

No it was wild. I just wanted everyone to see that I specifically meant a wild trout. I caught him in Spring Creek back in early October. Very nice, fat ,colorful male wild brown trout that went 18 inches. What a gorgeous trout to catch on a "Junk" fly! LOL.

The weenie is a go-to fly for brookies in mountain streams. You can see it and more importantly you can see when it disapears.

I may tie another parachute weenie. If I do, I'll post. Bruno may or may not still have the original.
