This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Water Boatman TBT.

Water Boatman |

Peter Bowers from the Patient Angler in Bend taught this fly during a Central Oregon Flyfisher’s Winter Fly Tying class a couple of years ago. He said the Water Boatman was a fly tied for Lake in the Dunes many years ago.

I wish I knew the origin of the fly.

I tied one for John Shewey, editor of Northwest Fly Fishing magazine. An article about Water Boatman flies is in the latest edition (July/August 2017). My friend John Sherry of Netknots posted the following picture on my RiverKeeper Flies Facebook page.

No photo description available.

Pick up a copy for yourself to learn more.

Since I wrote about Facebook, it might be a good time to encourage you to follow me on FaceBook (RiverKeeper Flies) or Instagram (@riverkeeperflies). I periodically post some pictures on these sites.

Enjoy…go fish!
