to put this thread. I just got finished e-mailing a reply to my friend in Ireland, and he sent me a few old videos online to watch. They take place in the South of England in the Chalk Streams. These two men are studying the brown trout, and the narrator comments on the argument from back in the late 1800’s which is better to fish with, dries or nymphs in the second video if I remember right. Though it was a quick mention, I found it amusing. But in the third video, they tie a mayfly with the bend of the hook facing up, and explain how and why the hackle is important to how a fish see’s it.
There are four short videos, and the sound is a little messy, but for what it is, I found it pretty educational.
