I haven't met John yet. I hope to--someday anyway. He sure ties a nice fly. John has been guiding and tying flies, in the Hamilton Montana area, since way back when.
You can see a lifetime of guiding in these flies: high-vis high-float dry flies to the fisherman--bugs to the fish. The difference between the top-side and bottom-side profiles of these flies is striking. I have to buy a PolyChute tool and start making these flies.
