Johnson Bumble and Telephone Fly
A friend had recomended these two flies to me, but i haven't been able to find any examples to tie them from. Have any of you guys any photos of the Johnsons Bumble and Telephone fly or indeed heard of them before? Your feedback will be much appreciated.

I haven't heard of either of them. Hopefully someone else has heard of them.

I have found the recipe for the Telephone Fly, it was in a Bob Church book a friend has.

Hook - 10 - 14
Tag Red Floss
Tail Golden Pheasant crest
Body Golden Olive Dubbing
Rib Gold
Body Hackle Palmered golden olive and claret hackle
Wing Bronze Mallard
1st Head Hackle Game read hackle
2nd Head Hackle Blue Guinea Foul
Head - Black

Really it's just a golden olive bumble variant. I think the johnson bumble is pretty much another variant, I will keep looking though.

When you tie some please put a picture up. I'd appreciate seeing what they look like.
