The Fly Formerly Known As The Dirty Fonzy...Now the Grumpy Muppet

 
In my opinion all good fly names are something that will stick in your head.  The particular fly name that had stuck to this fly had come about on the river as a combination of a few jokes.  As it turns out though, it was also already a name occupied by an act that I'd rather not have to explain to people, so the name had to be changed.  Let's just say if you Google the old name don't do it at work...
 
From this point on the fly will be named the Grumpy Muppet. 
Oh yeah..and it has been picked up by Orvis to be added to their line-up for 2015!
