  1. I saw a fly called “The Rose”. Is it a fly you created, developed & invented? I’m curious because, my Mother’s name is/was Rose. She died from complications of a Stroke on 4/29/17 & I wanted to honor her memory by tying the fly called “The Rose”, while giving proper credit to it’s originator. I am US Army, Staff Sergeant Russ Marek, Medically Retired due to an IED (Improvised Explosive Devise) & wounds received in combat during Operation Iraqi Freedom III in 2005. I am involved in “Project Healing Waters”, which is a fly fishing organization that helps injured Veterans recover from war wounds… learning something new & relaxing while fly fishing. I am asking because, I want to give the proper credit due, to the Creator, Inventor & Developer of the fishing fly. IF NOT, Could you PLEASE, direct me to the name of the person who did.

    SSG Marek, Russ
    Medically Retired & wanting to give credit,
    where credit is due!!!
    AND brag about the fly design.

      Thanks for your comment about The Rose. No, I didn’t invent the fly. It is a fly from the Orvis Company and was listed in Forgotten Flies by Paul Schmookler & Ingrid Sils. You may have not seen the writeup in a TBT post. Just search my RiverKeeper Flies website and you’ll find it.

      You might not have read the About Me page which states I am part of PHW as well. I teach fly tying to our Vets in Central Oregon.

      I’ll send an email with more info.

      Lastly, thanks for your service!

      John
