Re: BLUE VARIANT

Yes Dana - That’s a good way of putting it, a class of flies.

BLUE VARIANT

last night I reread A BOOK OF TROUT FLIES by Preston Jennings and it jogged my memory. I remember my uncle fishing big variants with gold and silver tinsel bodies.

Re: Hackle Porn - Darbee

Hi Dana,
The last time I saw a Darbee Pink pelt was in Walt’s shop (S+m Flytying) In the early 80’s.!
I tried to purchase the cape but Walt said “Not for sale”

Re: Tedd Ward

I used to fish the Delaware quite a bit in the late 70s and early 80s and I traded flies with many fellow fly anglers on the river.I believe that’s how I obtained the flies. In Nemes book titled SOFT-HACKLED FLY IMITATIONS,he gives Tedd Ward credit for m...
