“.......Pleasure is spread through the earth, In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find”
“ We fish for pleasure; I for mine, you for yours” Leisenring’s Notebooks
V.S. Hidy Flies
These flies are from a copy of The Art Of Tying the Wet Fly and Fishing the Flymph that Pete sent to a friend named Kirk while Pete was living in Boise , Idaho March 25,1971 “...Who understands Forestry, the quality of life....and the flymph.”
There are 5 different patterns with 4 of the patterns being tied twice. These flies will give a good example on how Leisenring and Hidy tied their flies.
Tan and Dun Flymph
Hare’s Ear Spider
Note the Button Hole Twist ribbing in this fly. A subtle but effecting touch.
Iron Blue Dun
Starling and Purple
