    First it's our hackle, now they take our rod handles. What are they going to use fly line for?

    Cork trolling shoes. It's what single women use when trolling the singles bars.

    I understand most of the quality cork goes into wine bottle corks. Nobody is complaining about that.:)

    It is already hard to get good cork for rod handles.....even the winemakers are using alternatives.....now if they start using our fly lines for string bikinis I'll............hmm

    So, instead of a string bikinis we will have "fly line" bikinis. Wonder if there will be a difference between say a weight forward 5 and a double taper 5? Or an 8 weight and a 3 weight? This could be fun. What would a full sinker be used for?
