Notes: The Bogong Beauty was inspired by a trout fly developed by one of Bob’s fishing buddies some time ago that featured a grizzly wing. Bob added the chartreuse wing and just went with it, decking the streamer out in chartreuse. The Bogong High Plains are an iconic section of the Alpine National Park in the Australian state of Victoria with Mount Bogong the main focal point.
Bob (Robert) Frandsen – I started fishing at a pretty early age going as a hanger on with my grandfather in my pre- school years.
I began tying flies at 13 under the guidance of Lance Wedlick who was well known in Australia more as writer.
