    I don't know if the "W" word is acceptable but when necessary I believe the term "Garden Hackle" is okay.

    Nice diagram.

    A renegade on a little lake in the Colville NF in eastern WA. I still love that fly. It's a great attractor for rainbows.

    Black Carey special on a lake in the Potholes. The small sizes were maybe mistaken for a chironomid, which I didn't have a clue what that was back then.

    Some non-descript cheap wet fly I got out of mix of flies at a local sporting goods in my hometown in PA kinda like what I've seen in Big 5 Sports. Caught a 10" small mouth bass in Sherman's Creek in South Central PA and was happy as could be.

    I think it was called a Drunken Crab.Crazy Crab? Anyway, caught a surf perch off the beach in front of the Del Coronado Hotel on Coronado Island, San Diego.

    First trout was caught on a deer hair beetle on the Kaweah River in Sequoia Nat'l Park.

    The first fly I used that I caught my first fly rod fish on was an Orvis Jassid that I tied from a Orvis fly tying kit.

    Size 16 Yellow Palmer. Little River, Smoky Mountains, Tennessee. A fat brown trout scarfed it up as the fly drifted past a rock in the middle of the river. I'll never forget that take!
