    Default Another side of Frank Matarelli

    While most, if not all, flytiers are familiar with Frank Matarelli as a toolmaker, specifically for his bobbin holders and whip finishers.


    While Frank is presently in his mid-nineties, and keeping a low profile, it is his superb skills as a flytier which I would like to draw your attention to.


    The flies pictured below are from the collection of Alice Conba, Ireland, - kindly given to her by Frank at the 1992 San Mateo show.


    Many among you may recognise Alice as an excellent flytier in her own right. Thank you, Alice, for allowing me to photograph the flies and share these images.














    Cheers,
    Hans W
