    Default 5 flies for Lakies

    Hi guys
    If you could only take five flies to Lakies what would they be? If It's one pattern in two colours or sizes it counts as two flies. I'll start although I don't have much experience there.

    An honest fisherman is a pretty uninteresting person.

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and not only is he hungry but broke for the rest of his life as well.

    No idea what that is. Anyone know what a lydenberg special is?

    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey
