Flies, from other fly tyers
Over the years I receive flies from various fly tyers as well as some from fly shops I stop by and along the way. I'm going to post some of them over the next few weeks to let you see some of their work. So enjoy and stay tuned.
This is a streamer tied by Peter Carlson. The "Edson Tiger" Photo by Peter Carlson. Peter ties this streamer using Jungle Cock as a cheek. This feather enhances any fly it's used on.
This is a streamer I purchased in the Wild Branch Fly Shop in Lunenburg, VT. The pattern represents a yellow perch and has to be effective where ever perch are found. The fly shop owner ties all of the flies in the shop.
This is a Fran Betters pattern, the "Mini Muddler" tied with a yellow wing. This fly was tied by Mark Wittman. A very effective fly for brook trout.
This is the "Usual" tied by Fran Betters. In my last post I had an inquiry about it. The gent wanted to see a photo of the fly. This fly "REALLY" works.
The Haystack tied by Fran Betters. A rough looking fly that gets it done.
The Ausable Wulff, tied by Fran Betters. This fly has taken trout every where I've fished it. This is I believe to be Fran's signature fly.
This is the first of several posts featuring flies from other tyers.
