It’s the last Thursday of the year and I thought it was appropriate to share a few of my favorite Throw Back Thursday Flies for 2022 on RiverKeeper Flies. I hope you liked them as much as I did!
In case you missed the flies and their stories, just click on the fly’s name to learn more.

Old soft hackle flies. There is something about the elegance of these flies with their minimal materials that continues to speak to me.

Lastly, a recent tie…the Beetle Bug Coachman – December 2022.
Here’s looking forward to a safe and prosperous New Year!
Enjoy…go fish, stay safe!
John, I just wanted to say Hi. We are now living in Ellensburg, WA and I drive over the Yakima River every day on my way to check on the house construction. So, naturally I’m looking forward to fishing it. But I want to let you know how much I enjoy your blogs. They are informative and well done.
Happy New Year to you and Karen.
Thanks for the Comment Jeff – Happy New Year!
