Fly Fishing Glossary O's

Fly-Fishing can often be confusing to beginners to the sport because fly-fishermen talk and write in a strange language using words not always in standard use. To help take some of the confusion out of the terms bandied about by fly fishermen we have compiled this glossary.

While the f-fly, yellow owls and other shuttlecocks had some success, this pattern was absolutely deadly this week in mid Wales during stillwater olive hatches .... had a blast nailing both rainbows and browns. Unfortunately, I only had one with me so once I lost this to a savage breakoff (7lb leader) success was harder to come by. Will be stocking up on more.
