  • In this recent post, David Goodrich writes about the “break point” in fly patterns, what it is and how to incorporate it into your own patters. “The more forward the break point, the more lateral motion the fly will have.

The softer the break point, the more momentum can be maintained.” Via Backcountry Fish Nerd.
