HLS / TFC Swim Tank – Fly Tester with JP’s Emerald Shiner Pattern.

There is no doubt that most flies catch fish, but you can see first hand that simple things, such as:

How modifying hook size and gauge will help you to understand and appreciate that your fly will track differently than you expected.

How the hydrodynamics of a fly changes due to a cone head and how much more sparse you can tie a fly due to the cone’s flare.
