BT’s Fly Tying Friday:  Mayfly Nymphs, Barry Webster

Barry Webster from Farmers Branch, Texas will share two of his favorite mayfly nymphs with inspiration from Polly Rosborough and Barry Ord Clark. In the WEEKLY TIP, we’ll complete our search for the “perfect dry fly footprint” in our opinion the best-of-the-best. Join us to find out what we’ve pulled out of our bag of fly-tying tricks!  It’s an old technique that has served us well for many years.
