The "John Storey" A Fly That Earned A Place.....
The John Storey, a fly that was brought to my attention here on SSR's by a follower. John from the Two Terriers had mentioned it saying it had been a very productive fly for him in the U.K. His mention brought several responses from other readers. Bill Shuck tied up a couple of versions of the John Storey, one wet and one dry. Alistair also provided me with some history of the fly in the form of writings.
So I tied up a John Storey dry fly and over the last few weeks gave it a tryout on some small streams. I'll let the series of photos give you a view of how it worked. I'll just add this. The John Storey will hold a place in my box.
