This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is a Bob Jacklin’s Salmonfly.

Tied by Bob Jacklin

A friend of mine loaned me this fly and told me Bob actually tied the fly. I was grateful to be able to feature one of Bob’s flies as a TBT.

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.

I read where Bob landed and released a 10-pound Brown Trout from the Madison River with this Salmonfly.

This fly looks like it would catch fish!

Enjoy…go fish!
