After learning how to tie flies that I fish with, I became obsessed with tying classic wet flies. Many people, me included, make the mistake of referring to these as “Bergman flies” after the late Ray Bergman. However the truth is most flies like this were created by many other fly tyers, including Ray Bergman, but he published the recipe and picture of them in his class book “Trout”.
While these flies do not take nearly the time that a classic salmon fly or freestyle fly take, they are absolutely fun to tie and addictive.
Thank you for visiting.
