  1. Just found out that you already knew about the sheep fly, because I just saw your video! My bad.

    1. Oh yeah, I first tied the sheep fly this year, and I can say that it’s been a champ so far! I’ve used it here in Maryland, Virginia and one trip out west. And it has caught fish everywhere I’ve used it! Thanks for the note. 🙂
