I'm working on a cow bung fly : it looks like sh*t (like most of my flies), when you want to take a break from fly fishing you can use it as a bung (!) but don't kid yourself, it's a fly.

Capital idea - that way you could test the 'God Save The Queen' theory, ie if the bung hasn't buried by the time you get to the N of Queen then you are probably striking too early.......
