    I flipped one, but I did it on purpose, just to see how stable the boat was, and it was very difficult. And, it flipped right-side up all on it's own. I could not make it stay flipped. I won't say it...

    I am probably 180 degrees out from the standard perception of a fly angler. You will most likely see me on the streams wearing cut-off shorts and sandals, smoking a Missouri Meerschaum corncob pipe...

    I do sometimes search FlyTying.com once in a while, for unusual patterns, but their site is nothing like FAOL. Neither are any of the others.
