Default Re: Unidentified Fly

From Ray Bergmans Trout pg 478 plate 4:

Grizzly King

body: green floss
ribbing: gold tinsel
hackle: badger gray
wing: gray mallard

Personally I don't see that fly as being cheap. I think it's well tied myself and looks as though it has caught a few fish. If anybody wants to step up to the plate and show us a quality tie lets see your rendition. Mallard Flank is not the easiest feather to wing a fly with. Many of the vintage wets of that era were heavily hackled, the hackle was poor by to-days standards but the flies certainly did the job and are revered by many Bergmanites.

The fly was given to me as a part of a huge package of flies. A friend of mine got them given to him by a gentleman who owned his own fly fishing store.

After I took this picture i promptly casted and lost the fly. I had two of them and the first one did a amazing job catching grayling while i was fishing the bucking horse river in northern BC. Im very very new to flyfishing, I think I maybe addicted!!
