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.

Recipe:

  • Hook: Size 8 Daiichi 1750
  • Thread: Brown 6/0 Uni-thread
  • Body: Tan or brown horse mane woven with 3 strands of orange embroidery floss. (Emboidery floss has six strands. Separate out three of them for weaving.) When woven in, the floss forms a stripe on the top of the hook shank.
  • Wing: Two clumps of Elk mane tied in on the sides like pontoons, angled slightly down.
  • Head: Brown 6/0 Uni-thread
  • Hackle: High-quality dry brown rooster neck or saddle, wound and clipped on bottom. (The bottom is actually the top of the hook shank because this is an inverted pattern made to skate with the hook point facing up.)

The Weekly Fly

From Al:

I grew up in Michigan and have fished as long as I can remember. After graduating college, I moved to California and gravitated toward fly fishing almost exclusively. I have been tying “seriously” since 1983 and have been a tying instructor both independently and for several Colorado fly shops since 2000. In 2005 I also began guiding along Colorado’s front range. Currently I am a member of Whiting Farms Pro Staff and am employed by PEAK Fishing and I have several fly patterns commercially available. In addition to guiding, tying instruction and demos, my wife Diana and I own and operate our own company geared primarily toward flyfishing education services. More detailed information is available at www.alrittflies.com.
