I'm looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm hoping to find someone who might be able/willing to help my dad and I out on something we've been trying to do on and off for a number of years. Back when my father was in high school he worked as a bus boy at Lucky's grocery store and got to be well liked by the customers. He became friends with one gentleman in particular who was Norwegian (like my family) and he showed my dad all the fish he was catching out in the Sound. Finally my father asked him how he was catching these trophies, and he brought in and gave my father a tube fly that he said was used by the commercial fisherman in the Sound to catch a lot of their fish. I've had the opportunity to go with my dad when he used the fly and good grief does it work!!! I'm hoping someone might be willing to help me in my quest to recreate a couple copies of the fly before it falls apart due to old age. I'm very much a novice fly tier and haven't the slightest idea how to get going on tube flies. So I'm hoping there is someone would could lend their talent to this quest. Would be happy to purchase the materials (if we can figure out some replica for it) and compensate you in some way for your time. This fly means the world to my father and I'd like to surprise him with the replicas for fathers day. It would be neat way to say thanks for all the sacrifices he's made for me all these years.
