You must tie and fish your fly so the trout can enjoy and appreciate it.
- James Leisenring
My research and experiments with mimicry flymphs have demonstrated the importance of Big Jim Leisenring's belief in the efficacy of spinning furs and dubbing that are carefully tapered to acheive lifelike bodies for trout flies. Such bodies are the key to creating lifelike flymphs that possess Uncercolor, Translucence, Texture, Shape, Proportions, Delicacy, Vitality and, now Mimicry.
