    Stop confusing sinking flies with floating flies. Keep sinking flies out of this. You can have a floating fly lying flat along the surface, such as a Shipman's buzzer, or a crippled midge, or you can have a floating fly hanging down, such as a suspender buzzer, or a shuttlecock. There are...

    I just go crude on them... Used as dapping flies...

    Thanks - will give it a go. (y)

    Epoxy buzzers sink. So, have nothing to do with dry fly fishing - where flies float.

    So why you banging on about epoxy buzzers... and tension...??? 🤪

    I'm talking about static dry flies.

    I like that idea. (y) Last couple of times on Menteith, the fish have been feeding on buzzers, and I just always fish dries, regardless... So, they were ignoring any kind of 'normal' dry... Klinkhamers, Shipmans, crippled midge, Bob's Bits, etc. What finally got them was a suspender buzzer...

    They say a trout has a brain the size of a pea?

    No, I wouldn't look at it that way at all. You might as well speculate that the only people who catch trout are the fast ones. But most of us manage to catch a few. Trout will surely all have much the same 'refresh rate', as do we, with ours being slower than theirs. This is pure speculation...

    They say a trout has a brain the size of a pea?

    Both end in ubber. 😜 I think the speed of time thing for different animals is somewhat analogous with 'refresh rate'. It's like how many times you can hit Ctrl-R on your keyboard in a given period of time, and get an update on the picture of your world. An animal such as a fly or a trout can...

    Well, not necessarily... It might have been a contender....

    How quick was he at avoiding being swatted?

    Size is certainly a factor, but I don't think it is to do with Einstein... Grauniad BBC

    They say a trout has a brain the size of a pea?

    No, it's nothing to do with that.

    They say a trout has a brain the size of a pea?

    I don't think the key is relative brain size. I think the key is the relative speed of time. For a human, a second passes quickly - we can't do much during one second. For a fly, a second passes much slower. It can do a lot more in the same time than we can. That is why they are able to take...
