When you only have one fly.... might have to do some pretty wild things to keep it. Dave Strege of the OCregister writes about strange behavior on the creek bank during the annual Jackson Hole One Fly Tournament.
One fly-fisher stripped his clothes off and swam naked into the river to retrieve his fly that got snagged.

Another stood on the shoulders of the guide and used pruning shears to cut down the branch where his fly was lodged.

A lucky one hooked a big fish that snapped his line, losing fish and fly, only to wait five minutes before the fly somehow dislodged from the trout's mouth and popped to the surface. He netted it — the fly, that is.

Here is a link to this year's results.
