Flies Tied in November, 2003
Henri Lemieux is a top club tyer and showed us his techniques for tying these specially requested flies. These photos were taken by Paul Beck. You might have noticed the fancy work with Photoshop that Paul has been doing in the last few months. HAFFT thanks Henri and Paul for their efforts.
