Notes: Charlie designed this fly for Senator Kilkelly, while working for the Department of Inland Fish and Wildlife as the Volunteer Coordinator. Senator Kilkelly was a large contributor to the Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs program for children while serving as a State Senator. Researching records shows that The Senator Kilkelly fly is the first fly named after a State Senator.
Charlie Mann – I started tying fly’s after receiving a fly tying kit for Christmas in 1960, while stationed in Thule, Greenland. I’m self taught an have been tying for over 50 years. During the 50 years of tying I have tried to specialize in tying tandem and single hook streamers. Also I have developed a passion for tying Atlantic style salmon hair-wings. This has been a wonderful relaxing hobby for me. I have designed several streamer patterns, and many hair-wing patterns.
