    CLARENCE ROBERTS - AU SABLE RIVER TYER


    Clarence A. Roberts, born in 1916, in the small town of Onaway, Michigan, went on to become one of the most iconic fly tyers of Michigan lore. He passed away in 1984.


    It all started back in the late 1930s, when Clarence Roberts' older brother Cliff bought "the whole nine yards" of fly tying equipment from a Herters Catalog. When Cliff joined the Army Air Corp in 1942 he passed on all of his tying equipment to Clarence, who was a game warden in Grayling, Michigan. Clarence rapidly became good tyer and he loved it!
