I’ve recently added several flies to the FrankenFly Fly Shop online. They are listed below and of course there will be more coming. If there is something you do not see and you need tied, just ask!
The Adams Female Parachute tied in Don Lieb style. This is an Adams fly that is more of an attractor pattern. This style is featured in the book, The Founding Flies by Mike Valla.
The Awesome is mentioned in Josh Greenberg’s book, Rivers of Sand, as one of his favorite dry fly patterns. It’s a good buggy pattern that can be used at any time. This is a great pattern for smaller creeks too.
This fly was originated by Mr. Cornie Schrems of Grand Rapids, MI. Cornie never tied his own flies but rather had them tied by Art Neumann or Dan Bailey. Art Neumann named this fly. Cornie Schrems was present at the original meeting at George Griffith’s home, where Trout Unlimited was founded. This fly was most likely created in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s.
It is used still today out west as an excellent March Brown pattern. It makes a nice general pattern when you’re not sure what fly to choose.
If you haven’t read about the Eggie Special that I posted about fairly recently, then go back and check it out. After I actually spoke to the Bugby’s they introduced me to the materials that actually make the Eggie Special. So I’m now offering it in the FrankenFly Fly Shop.
