Old-time patterns

O, sir, doubt not that Angling is an art; is it not an art to deceive a trout with an artificial fly? ... Isaak Walton

I often tie flies for old-timers in this area. And let me tell ya, they sure do like their old-time favorites. Following is a list of flies that I have been asked to tie in the past few years.
My thanks to the late Ole Anderson for many of the materials used in this project.
Additional lists of old-time flies are included below.

Jenny Lind
I have never had a request to tie this fly. I have included it here because it was designed and tied, back in the 1850's, by a Mrs. O'Connell of Halifax, Nova Scotia. There are variations. It is believed that the original was tied using blue quill.

Tail : Lavender barbules
Body : Yellow floss
Rib : Flat gold
Throat : Furnace brown
Wing : Lavender, red, lavender quill
Hooks, something to think about.
In the August 2007 issue of Fly Tyer, Grahame Maisey (a supplier of custom hooks) states ... "We discovered that with flies tied on hooks with down-turned eyes, especially regular wet-fly and nymph hooks, that the flies drift through the water correctly as long as there's no drag on the line. But, when you begin putting a little drag on the line, these flies will flip over. When a fly is tied on a hook with an eye that is turned up, however, it always rides in the correct position."

Most of the patterns in the following lists are unrecognizable by me.

Included is a partial collection taken from a small book, that I suspect was issued back in the fifties (or before), by the Cascade Tackle Company entitled the Fly-Tying Dictionary by J. Duckett. The only reference I could find to this book was in the Crawford County Library - George Griffith and Marion Wright Memorial Collection.

Also included are a list of flies produced by the Weber Lifelike Fly Company and another list produced in a booklet put out by the Sportman Cigarette Company. The recipes are not included in these two lists but I do have full colour drawings.

Another great source of old flies with recipes and pictures is on the Fly anglers online site

I received from a dear friend in New Hampshire a beautifully framed poster of flies produced by the Weber Lifelike Fly Company.



The Weber Lifelike Fly Company started life as the Frost Fishing Tackle Company owned by Carrie Frost. It was taken over in 1920 and renamed after Oscar Weber, its first president. "If Weber makes it a fish takes it," was one of its mottos. It went through another name change in 1958 and closed it doors shortly thereafter due to overseas competition.
The following is a list of flies shown on the poster...

The following list is taken from a booklet entitled Sportsman across Canada issued by the Sportsman Cigarette Company.



To quote Eric Baylis..."As a young lad, back in the forties and fifties, we didn't have fly pattern books at home; many patterns were verbally passed on. However, my biggest influence were the flies on Sportsman cigarette packs; flies with beautiful names like Rube Wood, Grey Mare, Whirling Blue Dun, Blue Upright, Yellow Sally, Trout Fin, Red Ibis, to name a few."
