Notes: The Dick’s Special was one of the patterns Jim had submitted to be published in Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon. This pattern as well as the Winnipesaukee Queen were created by Dick Fozie of Alton Bay. Jim discovered the patterns listed in a New Hampshire Profile Magazine in the early 1960’s and tied the pattern commercially for a time.
Jim Warner – My fly-tying has been listed in several books: Dick Stewart’s Trolling Flies for Trout & Salmon; Dick Surette’s Trout and Salmon Fly Index; Don Wilson’s Smelt Fly Dressings; Mike Martinek’s Streamer Fly Patterns for Trolling & Casting 1 & 2; many periodicals such as On The Water, UFT, etc; and many newspaper articles…. too many to describe.
