FLY FISHING -- The Swede's Fly Shop crew was presented feathers to fins at Rufus Woods Lake on Sunday, and they came home with lots of stories and even more mangled flies, says Allen Peterson.

"Stop by the shop for direrctions, flies and all the info you need," he said, showing a photo of an Egg-Sucking Leach pattern that had seen far better days.

"Have to have a float tube, pontoon boat or a boat boat. RIO Deep 7 line. Wow! What a rush!"
