I found this fly when I walked into his fly shop a couple of weeks ago. I stood in front of the fly bins and selected several I thought would make likely candidates for my TBT posts.

Jacklin is a fixture in West Yellowstone, having arrived in 1967. Bob worked in Bud Lilly’s Trout Shop and Jim Danskin’s Tackle Shop before opening his own West Yellowstone Jacklin’s Fly Shop in 1974.

In 2000, Bob was recognized for his fly tying skills with the prestigious International Federation of Fly Fishers’ Buz Buszek Fly Tying Award.
