Notes: The Tenas Trout Taker or Triple T, is a pattern that Bill devised in order to land a few large trout. The incorporates the Flymen Fishing Co’s Fish Skull head, giving it a natal looking head and weight to get the fly deep quickly. The fly has earned it’s reputation by laying claim to multiple trout over the 18 inch mark.
Bill Chandler – I have been tying flies for the Angler and the collector since 1978. I discovered fly fishing and fly tying by watching a Canadian angling show one Saturday morning. Since then I have spent a considerable time of my life learning both the old and new techniques of tying flies.
