Doug Jeffries, a long-time reader of the blog, recently got a fly in Fly Fishing in Salt Waters (a magazine I subscribe to). My mag hasn’t arrived yet, so I found out about it through Scott Heywood’s blog Fly Paper.
It is, indeed, a fine looking fly (full tying instructions at the Fly Paper link above).
That is a fly I’d like to have in my box, and exactly the kind of fly I probably won’t tie because I have yet to tie a fly that called for a dubbing loop. I should really stop by Doug’s and figure that out.
Doug… you around? How do you feel about teaching? You know, I’m an East Bay guy now.
Those of you who tie, what are the flies that you’d like to tie, but intimidate you a bit?
