Pattern Description
Over the past few years I have had several people call of email me asking for a tutorial on tying a classic winged wet fly. While these flies once seemed to have fallen out of vogue, the have been enjoying a resurgence in recent times. I by no means consider mysself an expert at these old style flies, but I must admit they are beautiful to look at and great fun to tie. The pattern that I will present here is really just a generic wet fly, and the parts can be substituted and changed at your whim. If you are the type who likes to follow directions, there are several great books and websites with more historical data on tying these patterns, if you ask your best friend, Google.
