This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Jacklin Woolly Worm.
The Jacklin Woolly Worm pictured above is another fly tied by Bob Jacklin and loaned to me by a good friend. He told me Bob has used this fly with success on the Madison River between Hebgen and Quake Lakes in Montana.
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.
The other Bob Jacklin fly I posted recently was his Salmonfly.
