Notes: Kevin is a big believer in fishing trout fry patterns and has developed several productive patterns over the years. The Rainbow Delight is just one of those designs that has made a home in his fly box. The fly features an interesting blue cheek originating from just under the crest of the Lady Amherst pheasant’s head. It results in a beautiful, inviting and colorful fry pattern trout will undoubtedly fall victim to.

Kevin Kirkelie Kevin Kirkelie – In having a Grandfather who was a avid fisherman, I was hooked at a early age. So…from my dad’s handy craftsmanship, he made me a homemade vise to start tying with, so that set the stage for what turned out to be my greatest artistic passion ever.
