This week’s Throw Back Thursday fly is Taylor’s Fat Albert.

Fat Albert |

The fly was created by Brent Taylor in 2001. Brent guides in the Dillon, MT area and Chile, which is where the fly was initially used to imitate Cantaria beetle.

I recall being introduced to a black/red version on a trip to Chile in 2005. Yes, the fish really liked them!

Use the fly to imitate Morman Crickets or hoppers by changing size and color.

The Big Sky Journal has a brief story about Brent HERE.

Here is a link to my RiverKeeper Flies YouTube channel where I demonstrate how I tie the fly.

Enjoy…go fish!
