Oregon coast fly fishing

Jay and I were emailing back and forth this a.m. I had no idea he was in such a dire situation, until he sent this photo along. I chided him about a bad cast and he followed with this:

    Geeez. Way to screw up a cool fly Jay. You have a lot of friends who are going to save this picture for a long time. Another argument for barbless. Get well soon.

    Havent seen anything so pathetic since one of my rams caught his business in the electric fence. That ll be a smart walk into the clinic. Save the fly man!

    Another excellent reason to use barbless and keep one’s tetanus booster up to date (~ 10yr).

    A nice pair of diagonal cutters can be a blessing when needed.
