Here is a link to an article in FlyTyer http://www.flytyer.com/index.php?opt...id=51&Itemid=0 on Classic Bass Flies. Jwb, it took me a while to find the Wyanoke. Talk about outside comfort zones! It certainly qualifies as a classic bass pattern. Here's a link to a nice photo. http://www.classicflytying.com/index...049&hl=wyanoke.
Of course, we can't ignore Mary Orvis Maybury. She is one of the greatest of classic bass fly tiers / histroians(?). (However, her book is not free...)
