    Cool....Ek dink daai ding sonder die weedguard sal 'n killer wees op sekere Trout Streams. Ek het al gesien hoe lig 'n groot foam hopper vis van die bodem af. En dan slaan hulle daai ding op die oppervlak asof dit die laaste insek is wat daai seisoen daar gaan verby drift.

    Ek dink selfs die pattern van jou sal dodelik wees as jy hom "Skate" down and across. Die ding dryf seker soos die mense wat oorboord gespring het van die Titanic af??
