Similar to the Willy's UV Cray from two weeks ago but significantly different as well.

Willy discovered his passion for fly fishing at the early age of six. Shortly thereafter, he began tying his own flies for trout, salmon steelhead, and shad. Willy found his love of lake fishing early and has continued to fish stillwaters, becoming known far and wide for his expertise and knowledge. He has fished all over northern California, Idaho, and Montana. From famous blue ribbon trout rivers to high mountain lakes and reservoirs, from farm ponds to the big lakes, Willy has guided for over twenty years in Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Willy has continued to develop his fly tying skills and is currently a signature tyer for Brookside Flies out of Denver, Co. He is the Assistant Manager of Montana Troutfitters of Bozeman. He uses any number of Echo fly rods to ply his craft, including our spey and switch rods and is currently working on the new design of Airflo fly lines for special presentation on lakes. Spey casting may be a new approach for lake fishermen in the US, but in Europe it is a common practice allowing for long distant casts from the shoreline.

RECIPE;

  • dia-riki 285 #10-6
  • anteni - flexi-floss & orange marabou
  • thin skin of your choice(lt olive fly spec used)
  • Squirrel stripped zonker color of choice.
  • Hen soft hackle(choice)
  • Medium wire or magic stretch
  • Lt olive dubbing or color of choice.

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.

RECIPE:

  • Hook: 200r or 2X streamer hook #4 to # 10
  • Thread: 8/0 rusty dun to olive "UNI"
  • Tail: Grey Arctic Fox Tail
  • Underbody: Fine foil lead with the rest of the Tailing material wrapped forward
  • Body: Mylar ribbon material to match your water
  • Throat: White to grey artic fox tail
  • Wing: Grey to olive arctic fox tail. On large minnows use a white under wing with the darker color over the top
  • Blood trails: The finest synthetic red material you can fine (Ice Fiber), even silk will work. (only 2 to 3 strands) on each side
  • Head: Thread color tied full like the head
