Default Getting flies tied

I have a fly pattern that a local gentleman ties. He said it's registered under his name but he won't tie a bunch up for me at any price. The pattern is called the Neutria. It's a fantastic go to pattern in which I've probably caught 80% of my trout on it in the past 10 yrs. The gentleman who came up with it and ties it will only give you a couple now and then but he's 80 now and looking pretty frail. So, how would I go about getting this pattern matched and tied?

I could probably look at it and get pretty close. The name of the thing throws up a red flag though. I'm wondering if there is actually some nutria fur or underfur, and I sure don't have any.

Posting pictures could get you alot of info, but we'd also understand if you don't want to give the old guy's secrets away.

Cliff: If you do a search on Ebay for Neutria fur there are a number of folks selling the fur.

Cliff: I have a muskrat fur from Aroostookbasser (from one of the fly swaps) and it looks pretty similiar to the nutria fur (both are in the rat family!).

As Cliff mentioned, you could probably get very close just from looking at the fly. If you had to you could always take the fly apart and see exactly what it has and where.

Hi Longbowman,

I am going to assume you don't tie your own flies. This may be a golden opportunity to learn how to tie. You might approach him and ask him to help you learn how to tie flies. Ask him to help you pick out a vise and materials. The object here is to learn how to tie flies and to befriend him. At 80 I bet he can use the companionship. Some where along the way he may share the recipe.

As to this special fly, all you have to do is get a hold of one or two. Two would be better. Use one as a pattern and cut the other one apart to see how it is tied. Any experienced fly tyer can probably tie one with out too much effort.

Frank
