: I do a fair amount of flyfishing in England, as I am over
: there six or seven times a year on business. It's
: mostly reservoir fishing, though I've fished a few chalk streams.
: There is a fly pattern used very commonly over there called a
: "Booby". It has two large bouyant foam spheres for eyes, and is
: typically fished with split shot or weighted core line. I've never
: seen one over here, though, and was wondering if anyone else has.
: There also seem to be a large number of plastic/jelly
: bodied flies used over there, even by those who tend towards
: purists. Are these kind of flies popular over here? I've
: never seen them in Georgia shops, and don't see much of them
: in magazines either...
