I tied up a nice fly last night to take to the Sandy River today. I weighted the fly with several wraps of lead then added a beefy set of dumbell eyes. So I get to the river and begin to worry that the fly might be to heavy and Ill snag the bottom for sure. I make several cast and all is well but I still worry about sagging the bottom. I'm carefull and if I feel a bump I raise my rod. Then it happens I wind up the spey rod make a nice long distance cast and stick the fly in a tree limb that is overhanging on the opposite side of the river. So much for snagging the bottom. I had to laugh at myself. At least I can still see the fly when ever I go back there!
