"The Otis Bug" of Rogue River fame ...

Things you learn. Been sitting next to a grand old gentleman for the better part of a year at a monthly lunch group. To just say Otis Swisher is a local 'institution' in fly fishing would not give anywhere enough 'credit where credit is do.

So, we're passing around flys that folks have tied of late and "Otis" remarks to the effect that that particular tie looked like it would be a very effective "Otis Bug." Another fellow at the table remarked: 'you should know, they're named after you.'

First of the flys happened as the New Age company sent Otis some new sample materials and he sent them back a few patterns he thought would be effective. The rest is history as this fly is the primary 'go to' pattern on much of the Rogue River system.
