    Thanks for posting that site. Just donated; I'd much rather give my money to charities where I know of someone has been helped rather than ones that might be complete scams.

    As long as a fly is still catching fish, I'll leave it on. A beat-up fly often out fishes a new one.

    Bracken clock (the insect) is pretty much the same as Coch y Bonddu (the insect). Both of the artificials by those names go back hundreds of years.

    If you mean under a dry fly, no. Usually part of a team of wets, and usually at point. Under trees, the ant gets most of the attention.

    For a dry imitation of carpenter ants, it's hard to beat a dubbed parachute style in a size 14.

    I don't see much difference between a jig and any other bead headed fly, except the direction of the hook eye. I don't fish with either, but that's my choice.
