I’ve seen it. But, I’ve not tied it or fished it.
I don’t know, but I’m conflicted about the Mop Fly. On rare occasions, I will fish a SJW or an egg. I’m now into flies coated with UV resin, and so, I’m not a total purist. But, I don’t fish pellet flies, and the Mop Fly just doesn’t feel right to me.
I’m writing this because the Wall Street Journal this morning has an article on the fly, if you can believe it. Link here, if you subscribe. If not, Google “WSJ mop fly,” and that will get you away from the paid wall.
What do you think about it? A fly or a lure? Does it matter?
