Golden Edge Orange

A slight variation of a Harry Lemire pattern.

Harry tied flies for 70 years. He is on the Mount Rushmore of Steelhead fly fishing icons in the sport.. I would put him up there with Walt Johnson, Syd Glasso and Frank Moore.

A quote from an 2002 ESPN article of Harry - https://www.espn.com/outdoors/fishing/news/story?page=ff_fea_pro_Lemire_Freeman

"I like cane rods, silk lines and wooden reels," Lemire says, nursing a glass of wine during a recent visit to Oregon's Rogue River for some steelhead fly-fishing. "I'm very traditionally minded and like bringing back something that's more or less forgotten," he says.
