the First Fly

via Jeroen Schoondergang

” forget the Egyptians and Macedonians with their feathered hooks. The oldest record of fly fishing dates 40 million years back. As you can see the fly is tied on a barbless circle hook and is a pretty realistic tie. Bummer that the owner dropped his fly in running amber… “

a pretty good example that things aren’t always what they seem and that we mostly see what we want to see.
good one Jeroen ! 😉
