    well at the age of 13 i was messing around in the yard with a few friends, Unaware that some wasps had built a nest underneath our steps. I was stitting on my bike banging it into the steps and chatting with my buddies when i felt a destinct pain in my toe. I looked down to see 6 wasps flying in and out of the steps and one still attatched to my toe. Not thinking anything of it being i had been stung several times thru out the years i shrugged it off. with in 5 minutes my back started to itch and developed hives. Then my face started to swell and couldnt breath. I was rushed to the hospital just in time, the Doc sad if i were a couple minutes later i would of died.

    dang. I can't even count the amount of times I have been stung. I would always mess with them as a kid and got my fair share but I never had a reaction. Sweet looking fly though.

    just proves my ignorance in the subject.. Lures? ... Flies? sorry to Fusion for any disrespect towards the masterful creation of the object that is used to catch fish. I'm a bear hunter (kinda) not a fisherman yet..Im working on it though Thanks for fixing my trail.

    No big deal - it was just a little friendly ribbing.
    Lets take the boat out on a bear hunt - you can show me the ropes. I'll bring the fly rods and do the same.
