    I only use size 28 dries when I'm out for ants. That guy is a shameless bottom-dredger.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Plus you have to coat the nymph in molasses, which some anglers consider unethical.

    ...yet another sterile wingless female, part of the collective in support of the colony.
    Its the whole division of labor... individual communication.. freakin complex problem solving thing

    females try to pull it off all the time
    opposable thumb rules...for now anyway
