The other day, I visited my local fly shop looking for a brown dry fly neck. I was astounded to find no dry fly hackle
there. I was told that there was so little interest in dry fly fishing they stopped stocking them. the only hackle they had were large ones for streamers etc . I was floored! Has our sport changed that much? Have we lost the ( My Opinion) spirit of fly fishing? Competitive fishing? Are we missing something here? Have we lost the wisdom of Robert Traver ( Testament of a Fisherman), and Herbert Hoover (Fishing for Fun and to Wash your Soul.) If you have not read these, I highly recommend them.
I do not mean to criticize anyone There is room for all. Just sounding off! Pat
