I have been on the prowl to replace the YELLOW cone head zuddler that rewarded me with beautiful, large brookies while wade fishing on Profile Lake earlier in the season.

I pulled the trigger without pause, firing off my PayPal info while half distracted by hallucinatory visions of these YELLOW zuddlers coaxing more trout out of the lake come fall.
I slept well after receiving my order confirmation. My small army of zuddlers were to be lovingly packed and shipped to me within 24 hours. I awoke to the following news…
“Thank you for your on-line order of the 3 Yellow Zuddlers.
When our last order arrived here the Yellow Zuddlers have been put on back order and I can’t say exactly when they will arrive here.
I can hold your order until they arrive and ship them then or refund your PayPal payment back to your PayPal account.
Sorry for the inconvenience,

B. Learn how to dye the fly. There are plenty if white ones around.
