This collection is well-stocked with trout and steelhead flies that I tied as a novice professional in the mid-1960s, finished off with a few of the favorite salmon patterns proven effective in the last two decades. The waters I have fished across Oregon include Cascade lakes, many Willamette Valley streams, the Deschutes, Klamath, Williamson, Rogue, North Umpqua, most of the coastal rivers, and the ocean near Pacific City.These flies have been effective in the waters I’ve fished, but more importantly, they have produced dependably for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of anglers who fished these flies in rivers and lakes across the western US states, Alaska, British Columbia, the Great Lakes, South America, and New Zealand. My personal experience - plus hundreds of stories told by friends and fly shop customers, all confirm the staying power of these flies.With a foreword by Rich Youngers, highly respected tyer of Classic Atlantic Salmon, Spey, and Dee style flies- former owner of Creekside Fly Shop- Oregon FFF Fly Tyer of the Year (2006)- and Professional Fly Fishing Guide, Salem, Oregon.This is a basic bench-side tying-guide, but not really a technical tying instruction manual. Youll probably have more fun plowing through the fishing stories and fishing tactics advice that are sprinkled about in each fly description.These flies have been effective in the waters I’ve fished, but more importantly, they have produced dependably for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of anglers who fished these flies in rivers and lakes across the western US states, Alaska, British Columbia, the Great Lakes, South America, and New Zealand.
