Thank you oh merciful professor of poetry and trout!


Largely forgotten until A River Runs Through It came along, the Bunyan Bug has quite a fan club.


Bunyan Bugs are collectibles today and difficult to find. The value can be $100.00 - $250.00 and up depending on
the condition of the fly and age.  VIA: Bunyanbug.com  LINK


If you're familiar with the popular autobiographical novel by Norman MacLean, "A River Runs Through It". You may recall mention of the Bunyan Bug. Well, here is some info on the original and an updated version. VIA: Front Range Anglers  LINK


The Bunyan Bug--invented by Norman Means...aka Paul Bunyan of Missoula Montana in about 1945.
I remember buying these flies in the Hamilton MT hardware store (there was no fly shop then) in 1960, when I was about 12 or so. I do remember they were fun to look at but hell to cast. VIA: Montana Fly Tyers  LINK

The Bead Headed Bead Fly


This is a new one for me.

The Bead and Book kit.  VIA: The Bead Gallery LINK

A bead fly is almost trivially easy to tie - well 'tie' is the wrong word, assemble is better. Thread some glass beads onto the hook, put a drop or two of Supa-Glue on the bead nearest the barb, and whip-finish in some insurance.

And you thought "Wooly Bugger" was a funny name


Still, notwithstanding the British pedigree and effectiveness, it is simply beneath my dignity to fish with anything called a Flaming Boobie.
