Imagine My Surprise: Hunting Trout by Tom Sutcliffe

I had recently heard from Ed Herbst that I might receive a generous offering from Tom Sutcliffe. In fact today, I did receive a package from South Africa and inside was an aut0graphed edition from Tom, complete with a nice handrawn Adam Dry Fly on the inside page. This personalized presentation is available to you by ordering directly from Tom Sutcliffe.

This past year, I have been most fortunate to receive inspiration from the works of Tom Sutcliffe, Ed Herbst, Tim Rolston and Craig Thom, all of the Republic of South Africa. All these gentlemen are well read in the history of fly fishing and tying, well beyond today’s contemporary offerings. I am quite thankful for their generosity and look forward to reading Tom’s fine book, Hunting Trout. Thank you Tom.

Fly Tying: Beetle Pattern with Post (Siting the Fly)

Beetle Pattern with Post for Finding the Fly

Found this Hatchfinders site and there are several excellent tutorials here on patterns for trout/graying. Also, there is a lot of tropical FF destination information here that I enjoyed. I have done a little bit of this, but not with overwhelming success. I have always wanted to FF the East Cape of Mexico while wading the shoreline. Nice section in here re that. Also, BONUS PATTERN, check out the nice CDC  Spent Wing Caddis (do caddis have a spent wing phase?)…regardless, a nice pattern…..
