Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

6/0 Baron tied for the upcoming PA Fly-fishing Museum auction in November. 

After picking up some great books from Bill, including a copy of the Radencich salmon fly book,  I decided to tie this one following the Wayne Luallen dressing it contained. 

This was stretching my winging/horn materials to their limits, and I had to make some substitutions in the wing. Oh well, time to start searching for some bigger bustard!

In a word...SWEET!!   I've never seen this version, and you've done it proud.

Thank you both very much! 

@SalarMan I had not either, and it really caught my eye! But to be honest I don't think I have seen a single fly from Wayne Luallen that didn't strike a chord with me! 😂

Now that I'm not getting the "Resource Limit Reached" screen I can respond👍

I enjoyed seeing this version and when I went through my books by Mike R. I found the Louallen version. It just so happens I had a Baron in the works when you posted this one. The body is complete and I will be working on finishing the fly after my wife and I get  home from a brief getaway this weekend. As a long time Pryce-Tannatt aficionado that is the planned version I am doing at this time.

I've actually done very little tying of late so the finished product may be a while before being posted.😁
