It pays to pay attention to KELLY. If he says it works, IT DOES. PERIOD. His flies, and the kit he designs for fishing them is the most valuable beta you'll ever receive. It ups your game exponentially. The man is constantly thinking about HOW TO CATCH FISH MORE EFFECTIVELY. So, pay attention, Grasshopper. Thanks again, KELLY. The deer hair techniques you taught me 25 years ago have helped me and CLIENTELLE catch more & larger brown Trout , even @ high noon, than all the other dogma on this species combined. Never confuse simplicity with a lack of sophistication, right? Take the ZOO COUGAR asban example. Hook, thread, and Marabou, diamond braid, kip tail, mallard flank feather, & deer hair. 5 materials, and the most effective fly I know of is born. Even the leader is simple. 18" of stiff, 50 lb. Butt, & 18 to 24" of 10 or 12 lb P- line, or your favorite tippet material. A strong loop knot, THAT IS IT. Well, obviously the line is also a huge part of the equation, too. As if I need another sinking line, I have bout 30 now. What's one more, right... Actually, my lines are like a set of golf clubs. Highly specialized. This one, I have to have. Why? When u pound the bank like one should , the faster the fly gets down the Closer u can keep the fly in the zone & longer is more important than you think. Browns are like vampire. They don't like the sun. I could go on & on & perseverate, but I won't. I'm gonna wind this on my "SPEEDSTER", and hit the LAUNCH RIGHT UNDER THE PARKWAY. I have to say a bit about the lightest but most powerful rod I've found yet for this; the SAGE X 9' 8 WIEGHT. How they made this absolute cannon of an 8 feel and wiegh what a LIGHT 5 does is above my pay grade, but it is the best X - fast ZOO COUGAR RIG ROD IVE FOUND YET. And I have 25+ years worth of the fastest, most powerful rods made. Yeah, I'm single. U can't put a lamp shade on o fly rod like u can a S X S shotgun and sneak it in the cabin. That's my ticket to wealth and game. The get your latest fly rod past the wife and into the house covertly, or better yet in plain sight. YEP, THATS IT. NEVER HAVE TO WORK A DAY OF MY LIFE AGAIN. The "X" is green, so I'm thinking like military grade cloaking to make it appear to be a tall plant, or curtain rod... LELAND, OUT.
