Tummel Style Fly Tying (Article by David Westwood)

Post by letumgo » Mon Feb 16, 2015 4:34 pm

I am posting a link to an article about Tummel Style winged wet flies. This is an example of the style flies that share a close history with the wingless wetflies we have grown to love on the Flymph Forum.

This is so cool! I read and understood the river orientations and enjoyed the history of this fascinating pattern!
Thanks Ray! And, thank you Ruard for making us aware of this article (I assume this is how it came down?)!
This is fascinating stuff men! Please keep us fed!
