This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is a Northern Idaho Bee.

This fly is one from a box of old flies I borrowed from my friend Jim Fisher. He learned to fly fish in Northern Idaho. This fly is probably from the 1950’s or 60’s.

Here is a sampling of a few other posts I wrote about from the information I received from Jim:

In addition, other TBT posts includes several of his Atlantic salmon flies.

Jim Fisher was recognized as the 2011 Stan Walters Memorial Tyer of the Year from the Oregon Council of Fly Fisher’s International. I spent a few hours with him for a tutorial on selecting materials and techniques used to tie wet fly wings.

Enjoy…go fish, stay safe!
