Notes: Juli’s Fancy is a dark attractor pattern that is as effective as it is beautiful. Try this pattern on cloudy misty days right where a creek enters a mountain lake. Alan created the pattern and named it for one of his daughters. All of his children have a streamer that bears their name.

Alan GrombacherAlan (Alberta Al) Grombacher – Alan started tying flies shortly after his 8th birthday, in fact the day after his Dad came home with his first pair of bifocals. Alan’s Dad set-up his tying vise after dinner that night, and taught Alan to tye. His first flies were brown hackle peacock wet flies and black/grizzly woolyworms. The first woolyworm that he tyed is still in his fly fishing gear. Alan quickly became the fly tyer for his Dad, Dad’s friends, and his buddies, and has been tying now for over 43 years.
