Stillwater dry flies :: The LOONS Flyfishing Club

IN ADDITION TO THE STANDARD TIES, favoured flies of club members are as diverse as the fish we endeavour to entice to our offerings… rainbow, cutthroat and bull trout, dolly varden, steelhead, salmon – fresh and salt, bass and other species.

If we had to pick ‘only one’ to angle for our favoured quest, the following patterns reflect a personal treatise on imitating the ‘natural’…
