from a strict scientific point of view, i have absolutely no idea what these images might mean… but ! an overwhelmingly strong gut feeling tells me that apart from a very few and feeble electrical impulses bouncing around incoherently there isn’t a heck of a lot going on there and this is a good thing for us fly fishers !
yes, we can safely continue casting out our ‘anything-goes’, messy blobs of fluff, feathers and fur that look like nothing at all with the supreme confidence they’ll work majestically because our slimy-innocent friends most probably (well, i’m positive) can’t tell the difference between (figuratively speaking) shit and Shinola…
