A big thank you goes out to Jack Tucker and Sue Kreutzer for being great people. Fly tiers are awesome. I was left a comment by a very nice woman pointing out that I hadn’t given proper credit for the IOBO fly found in the W.F.F. Flies section. I promptly changed it and sent her a reply. Sue being wonderful, passed on the information to Jack Tucker the originator of the fly who ask me for an address and here is what I received a few days later.
It makes me smile to know that I’ve made friends with a few people just by our love of fly tying. Thanks to Sue and Jack for creating and publishing the information on the IOBO and I can’t wait for the opportunity to fish a Tucker tied IOBO. Along with the IOBO pattern that spurred the conversation Jack sent me a “Jackhammer” which is a klinkhammer parachute patter and some craft yarn to experiment with. You can see the IOBO instructions here and the instruction for the Jackhammer here.
