Re: Megan Boyd

The thing about Megan Boyd always to keep in mind is that she tied those gorgeous flies to catch fish, not to be plaqued on some one's wall as folk art or feathered Faberge Easter eggs.

Someone once passed on using a fly as "not being elegant enough for a salmon" and expressed a standard many of us have internalized. Sure, Bunny Leechs and Green Rock Worms will catch fish, but what greater satisfaction can there be than to tie on a Megan Boyd Green Highlander and have it taken solidly by the King of Fishes.

Times arrow flies in but one direction. Sure and she will be one of Salmon's immortals.

God Bless her and her contributions to her art and craft.

Eric
