Rogan's Fancy 1/0

Recommended Posts

Thought I was overdue an Irish fly - anyway here it is Rogan's Fancy - as usual from Malone.

Hope you like it

Dave,

 

You never cease to amaze and inspire me. As soon as I finish the nymphs I'm tying for a swap, I'll pull out my copy of Malone and get to work on something Irish.

:D I wonder if this is a Pattern of Rogan of Donegal. I remember visiting his shop in Donegal many years ago on one of my many trips to the ould sod. What was most notable, was that he and his family were tying all kinds and sizes of patterns as well as spey and salmon flies----but they did not tye using a vise other than their fingers. The only tools that I remember in use was a rather interesting (but ancient) type of bobbin and a pair of scissors. Their thumbs and subsequent fingers were quite callused and their work was beautiful---I still have the dozen assorted dries I purchased from him in a shadow box. :)

Neat story Doc! Be sure to attach it with the flies so the next owners will know it.

Yes it's a Rogan pattern - though I believe it's a creation of the founder, Michael Rogan - he died in 1905... Nevertheless an illustrious familly establishment that's sadly no more - Mr Mc.P is yer man on these guys I believe.

Beautiful fly Dave, as for Doc's story, wow, I can't imagine tying up one of these by hand.

Just great! And 1/0 to boot. I love the taper of the body, and I don't know how you tie that clean a wing that small.
