This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Arthur Hoyt.
Here is another wet fly from Ray Bergman’s book entitled Trout. It’s one of several flies to make the list of Throw Back Thursday Flies in recent weeks. Perhaps it’s because there are SO many flies to choose from.
The Arthur Hoyt can be found on Plate 1.
As with other flies found in Trout, I’m unable to find any history of the fly. Perhaps it was tied and fished by a fly fisherman of the same name? OK, I just made that up…
If you are interested in tying the fly, choose your favorite hook as they are not listed in the book. I used a Mustad 3906 size 10.
