Well, as everyone in fly fishing has debated the mop fly, I've done a lot of watching, played a little but not gotten serious.
Today that changes... I actually bought a "mop". That nice, slightly mottled gray color. What really got me though, was looking at a glove down the isle. It was the same thing, but covered in mops that are, at best, half the size of normal... Most likely they are smaller! I like the little ones better, and look forward to the creations they allow.
