Back to Karen’s Fly series …

scott_murdockScott Murdock- – I started tying flies in the 80’s and it wasn’t long before I made a visit to The American Museum of Fly Fishing in Manchester VT to visit a family rod that was displayed there. I noticed the Atlantic Salmon Fly plates that were then on display. Realizing that I actually had an idea of how these things were constructed (yet knowing that I had a lot to learn) I drank the proverbial “Kool-aid” and embarked on the process of learning to tye display patterns.
