Fly Tying: Elegant Emergers (John P. Newbury)

I recently had the good fortune to make the FB acquaintance of John Newbury, an Oregon tier. His work is admittedly beyond the beginning tier. However, his pattern images are so inspiring (crisp, clean, beautifully photographed) that I bring them to you as inspiring and as exceptional standards to be strived for……………….   (my sincere apologies to John. In the original post I spelled his name Newberry)

Fly Fishing & The Bugs (Bug Water)

This fine book by Arlen Thomason has been out for awhile and already reviewed by many. I came across it at the Back Country Fly Shop in Corvallis, Oregon. I can only say what everyone else has said: fabulous, amazing details, painstaking photography, new understandings, great effort, well done. I have really enjoyed this book! Buy it.

Also, as a fellow Oregonian, I like the fact that Thomason lives by the McKenzie River in Walterville, Oregon. Don’t you wonder, when you hear those town names, who Walter was?

“Walterville post office was established in 1875 and named by the first postmaster and prominent Central Oregon rancher, George Millican, for his son Walter”    Wiki
