Dominic Singh: A dozen “Dumb Red Fly”. One hours' fishing proves successful as I gut my limit of Stillwater rainbows. The Mrs., or in this case the mother, bothered by the aroma of game processing, asks "so, what worked today?" I show the dozens of pictures of all 43 of the trout I had caught but released and the one, battered piece of maribou clinging on to a hook by a single thread. "You caught all those fish on this dumb little red fly?" she exclaims. Since then, then name stuck: the dumb red fly. Power bait anglers beware...by Dominic Singh, age 13
