    Default THE SPARROW (modified) - FOTW - January 24, 2011

    THE SPARROW (modified)

    Some years ago I discovered a fly called the Sparrow which was created by Jack Gartside. I tied some and had success with them. As time went by the sparrow was forgotten until I saw a fly called the Birds Nest. It kindled my memories of the Sparrow so I looked into the achieves of FAOL's Fly of the Week for the pattern.. The Sparrow was not included. I believe it is well worth including in your fly box. Here is my version of the sparrow.

    Default The Sparrow (modified) Dressed by Tim Anderson

    This is Tim's third fly pattern contribution to FAOL's "Fly Of The Week", and this one is even better than the other two articles (and they both were great also)

    The Punch and Bead Fly, May 17th 2010
    The Wired Ribbon Fly, 2nd Quarter 2008

    Being a modified verion of Jack Gartsides "The Sparrow", this fly pattern should be in every fly anglers fly box (if it isn't already in there).

    I offer free CD's of FAOL's Fly Pattern to all members of FAOL... just have to send me a "Private Message" on FAOL's Bulletin Board with your mailing address and I will have on in the next mail pickup. ~Parnelli

    Tim,

    Very nice Step-By-Step and what surely must be a killer fly. A few will be added to my wet fly, flymph box.
