  2.  No matter how cool you think you are around snakes, when you fall directly onto an enormous unseen one while trying to navigate a rocky stream bank you may pee yourself a little due to fear.

Simple Trout Flies

Some simple, durable, quick ties (size 18 flies) that often get the attention of trout on rivers nearby and afar. Tied on a hook that dangles: trailing shuck; some weight (wire) on body to hopefully tug it below the surface (saliva on shuck and body helps); exaggerated thorax dubbed; wing of polypro or deer hair, sometimes hackle used to keep top half (head) floating and most importantly visible.  145 more words
