I'm pretty shure it was Jason Borger.

My question is: who is the Austrian riverkeeper who developed his own castingstyle?

Hi,
      I think Jim's right . Google maybe debatable !
       It says
                                          dry flies
                                           wet flies
                                           nymphs
                                           lures
                                           "terrestrials" (but I think this is American speak !!)
  (Can't believe I,m checking Google for this !!!!!)  :z4
   I would go with emergers instead like Jim, terrestrials can be dry, wet or emergers . Unless we are on the wrong track in which case my apologies.

Paul.

Hi Paul

Based on that which catagory would a fry imitation then fall into :?

Just my understanding but I believe that
Wet, Dry, Nymph, Emerger are correct but Lure is not quite correct.
Lures, Mini Lures, Fry imitation etc come under one catagory not in
the list, but I could be talking S***e...Mr B :z5


Jim over to you for the next question any way

Hi Kev

Yes a Streamer is what I was looking for

A  streamer fly pattern is a fly fishing lure designed to be actively fished beneath the water's surface within the water column itself.
