Barry's steelhead flies
Back in 1963 to 1972 I packaged and fished flies tied by Dave Barry. Most people do not know who he is, but he invented a few patterns for salmon on the B.C. coast, that many people would remember.
These were his steelhead flies from that period.
Dave was a shipwright and a professional fly tyer and he paid me to package his flies for him. It awoke in me, something I am still dealing with today. Dave paid me in flies or cash, whichever I wanted.
In memory of Dave I recreated the patterns he tied from my rusty memory, my apologies, they are not as well tied as his were.
The Double Fireball
