Hello Everyone,

If you haven't visited the clubhouse library in a while, check it out:

RWFF Clubhouse Library

You'll notice in the Bookcase to the right a book titled "Art of Flytying". I'm giving Pitti a hand by writing some articles for the book. I've picked a few flies and done a little research to find out the recipe, history, origins, etc.

If you've got a particular fly you'd like to see in the book, send me a PM with the information. The more background info, the better. If all you have is the fly name, that's OK too. I'll do the research part.

Also, if you see a fly article in the book and wish to dispute the historical references, pattern recipe, etc., send me that information as well. I do not claim to be a historian, or and expert. If your data is more reliable, I'll be happy to edit the article.

Any and all suggestions, comments, questions are welcomed.

Hi Dcarp
I think what you and peter are doing for the club is making this a club house we can all be proud of and have a lot of fun in. I like the histroy part so many time we use fly's in our fishing. and we don't know how the fly came about.

Thanks
I've spent the most important time of my life fishing. What was left over I wasted.

Hey Cutch,

I'm having a pretty hard time finding historical information about the Green Butt Skunk. You'd think that for a extremely popular NW Steelhead Fly, there'd be more information out there. About the only thing I've come up with historical is that if "may" have evolved from Al Kundosn's Black Bear.

Have you got any information that could help me out?

Dave,
The Green Butted Skunk was my favorite Steelhead fly on the N. Umpqua. I used it by Steamboat in the "flyfishing only" area. :wink:
I don't have any information on it,....sorry. I tied my own flies when I was younger and able to walk the banks and fish for Steelhead.

Cutch,

Thanks anyway. Maybe you invented it!!! :wink:

I found a couple leads and posted two of them. There's also a story about some famous photographer that may have come up with the first
skunk.

Hello Everyone!

I'm nearing the end of the project that Pitti asked me to help out with and was wondering what the group thought about expanding the book just a little. What are your thoughts on adding one more Chapter for "Flies from around the World"?

What I'm thinking is that we could use a chapter to display some flies that may not be used here in the US, but are probably popular in other parts of the world - flies like the Rackelhanen from Sweden, the Mrs. Simpson and the Hamill's Killer from New Zealand, etc. etc.
