Had a long conversation this weekend on why I don't tie tandem flies anymore.
The don't swim, but wobble more like a jointed rapala.
They take twice as long to tie.
I get most all hook ups on the front hook any ways.
It adds allot of weight to the flies, which make it sink and harder to cast.
I also don't think they have as nice of profile.
I know lots of people who live them, so be it. That's why we have choices.

I went into the whole bigger flies catch bigger fish theory. But its more than that. My fishing has proven that bigger flies catch bigger average fish. They also catch less fish, cause the little ones tend to leave it alone. So its really a decisions by the fisherman. Do you want 10 one pound fish or one 10 pound fish. Really comes down to that. Every time you hook a little fish you have wasted a cast that potentially could have hit a big fish, but you also risk spooking a larger fish in the area.
Last night I only caught one nice bass. Probably 4 pounds. He caught a dozen 1 pound fish.
