The Weekly Fly
This pattern is especially interesting because it was invented by his father.

Boots Allen is a third generation guide and outfitter from Western Wyoming. Over the last 18 years, he has had the opportunity to fish and guide at destinations around the world, including Argentina, Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Costa Rica, British Columbia, and the streams of the Rocky Mountain West. He has pened numerous articles for fly fishing magazines such as Fly Tyer, The Fly Fishing and Tying Journal, The Drake, and Sports Afield. Boots has used his creations at the fly tying vise for a variety of game fish including taimen, pike, lenok, sea-run brown trout, steelhead, pacific salmon, snook, roosterfish, redfish, and almost every imaginable species of trout.

Recipe:

  • Hook: Any standard dry fly hook, sizes 6 to 10.
  • Thread: Yellow, orange, green, or red 3/0 flat wax.
  • Tail and Body: Mule deer hair from the neck and facial area.
  • Hackle: Fine grizzly hackle. I typically will use silver or gold label hackle from Whiting Farms.
