Thanks to Trevor Saunders for the photographs at right and below, received with the following report:
Just wanted to compliment you on the strength and durability of your superfly flies.
The pictures attached are of a 20 pound 7 ounce rainbow I caught on July 10th in Tekapo canal by the control gates using a size 12 globug I purchased from you. When I examined the fly after I had landed the fish it was still in perfect condition, no stretching of the hook or deformation of any kind. This was after a 20 minute game of “Battle of Wills” with the fish. The fly went on to hook another 2 fish and was finally lost when I got spooled by a fish of unknown size (rather large I suspect).
Anyway keep up the good work in providing us with top quality flies.
