Ive had several occassions to use this "tactic" when Ive fished on a new stream and sometimes one's Ive fished quite often.I keep my eyes out for flies fisherman have broken off. If I have not had much success on my own flies ,Ill tie on the ones Ive found.Quite often it is a slightly different pattern or sometimes something I would have never thought of using.Several times this has saved the day.I then copy the pattern and add it to my arsenal.

Well, I've left lots of flies in trees from Maine to Tennessee and every place in between so perhaps you've used some of mine.

I would say they were mine too but of course mine never get stuck in tree branches I can actually reach! LOL

Trees, my biggest enemy while fly fishing. I get close and personal with a few trees each outing. I retrieve some, but I'm still losing the battle.

Anybody have a good recommendation for a mini chainsaw that I can fit in the back of my confluence pack? We'll see if those trees keep stealing my flies when they find out about the chainsaw.

It amazed me to see, 25 or 30 feet in the air, a Rapala, two or three lines and a Thingamabobber in a tree looming over a nice hole on the Lackawanna......

Nice to know my work and mistakes have benefited someone.

I'll work on those midges!
