As a fly tyer I'm always looking for patterns with universal appeal. It's an occupational hazard for me to carry hundreds of patterns. I keep trying to reduce the load but I'm always afraid I'll leave the 'right' pattern back in the tackle box. But over the last few years I've made a considerable effort. The fly pattern today is truly one that has helped. This creation comes from the vice of Ted Earl. Ted was a commercial tyer who hailed from Kingsley, Michigan. This pattern was created back in the mid to late 1960s. This fly possesses magic. Like the Adams, it has the right colors and silhouette.
