Re: Peacock Fly

Wonderful stuff, Bill. Nice to see a recipe dating back that far. I get a kick out of fishing old patterns.

Happy hooking! ;)

Terryll (Fishnkilts) - I thought of you while reading this book. On page 22 Ed tells a story about the Rio Grand King wet fly, like you recently posted. " In September of 1992, the late Bill Kelly caught a fifteen-and-a-half pound brown on a size 6 Rio Grand King wet fly. " I can see why y...
