We Don't Sell No Stinking Egg Flies!

“‘Egg flies! We don’t sell no stinking egg flies. What part of fly fishing don’t you understand? A fly fisherman uses Royal Coachmans, Black Gnats, H&L Variants and Cahills. This is a fly shop, not a #&@%* bait store.'” Gary Lewis describes the general shunning of egg flies among traditionalists and points to a book — Cannibal Trout by Andrew Williams (Amato Books) — that changed the way he looked at fish food.
