    Hi David;
    Thanks for your comment! These pattern were in his books, but with one exception that he originated (The Quebec), they are all examples of commercially produced patterns, many of them historic 19th century flies. A correction of sorts perhaps, not necessarily “Bergman’s wet flies. Thanks again!

    Hello Don,

    Is it my eyesight or does the plate painting for this fly show white over scarlet for the tail?
