Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Here's my take on the old salmon pattern called "Garry", also known as the Ministers dog or Gary Dog. It was said that this pattern was named after a Ministers golden retriever who's hair was used as wing material.

 

Traditionally tied in smaller sizes I opted for a bigger hook so that I could try it out on some winter steelhead.

I am in no way trying to hijack your thread, but you have simply inspired me to post this here. I know this fly as a Wringer, derived from the Garry Dog I'm sure, but it calls for squirrel rather than bucktail. Although hard to see, there is a yellow underwing. Regardless, I love your fly!

Both are beautifully handled. Well done. It's nice to see some more classic and classic inspired hair wings on this forum.
