This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the St Joe Favorite TBT. (I mislabeled the title – should be St Joe Favorite!)
I first found this fly at the Idaho Fly Fishing Company in Avery, ID during our fly fishing trip to the St. Joe River in Idaho. I always enjoy going into local fly shops to see the flies which work for their waters.
I remembered seeing the St Joe Favorite in an older Northwest Fly Fishing magazine article (May/June 2010) and it included the fly pattern. I’ve since added the fly pattern sheet and hope to have a new Attractor Fly Pattern page.
You can see the St Joe Special HERE.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the history of this fly. If you know something, please provide a Comment below.
