That Dance of the Little Red and White Bobber

By Terry Beeson

As have many things, fishing has become a game of “he who has the most toys…” Go to most any fishing spot on the map and you will find a plethora of rigs, gadgets, tools, and equipment, many in the same boat. Wading fly anglers don a vest full of contraptions that will make most military grunts and women with big purses seem like light weights.
