From Jerry:

I am a fly tyer from La Pine, Oregon. I retired to Central Oregon in “2004” to follow my passion for the sport of fly fishing and fly tying which took hold of me in the early 80’s. I was blessed with a great mentor and teacher in the late Andre’ Puyan’s who with great patience and humor cleaned up my tying by teaching me the classic techniques of the fly tyers craft. Andre’ believed that with great technique there is not a fly that you couldn’t tye. It is the way and how I teach today in my own classes.
I demonstrate at the most of the tyer conclaves and The Fly Fishing Shows in the Western US. I teach and do demos at the local Orvis store, as well as coordinate a winter fly tying series for the Central Oregon Fishers for which I am a member. In “2009”, I received the Stan Walters Memorial Fly Tyer of Year award from, the Oregon Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers. I am humbled to be in the same class as the past winners of this great award, and I will continue to teach and pass on the fly tying craft for that is the only way it can live on.

Randy Says:

I have been tying flies since my wife taught me to tie 38 years ago. I have always been fascinated with woven patterns, in particular those originated by George Grant and Franz Pott.

Note on hackle construction: The length of the completed woven fibers should be approximately 3/16" for a size 10 hook and the lateral length of the five-fiber bunches woven onto the thread should be 7/8". When weaving of the entire hackle is completed, the deer hair butts should be trimmed to 1/2 the length of the hackle tips. Ideally the deer hair should be a minimum of 2" in length to facilitate weaving. However, deer hair this long, that is not too brittle to weave is hard to find. You can weave with shorter fibers (1 1/2") if necessary. Chris Helm at Whitetail Fly Tying Supply (800-579-5549) is familiar with and can supply the type of deer hair needed for weaving.
