It turns out the Brown Owl pattern I was tying at the last Tie and Lie was close to the original but not quite there.

Someone sent me an article written by Bob Broad (pattern originator) and so I tied up some more - the right way.

I redid the video I had put out on how to tie the Brown Owl and published the video along with a quote from the article telling in Bob Broad's own words how to tie the fly. If you're interested the newsletter is at:

Just click the picture - it will take you to the video.

Thanks for the follow up on an interesting fly. I was even more interested after reading that it can be used in early Spring to imitate Damsel/Dragon fly, etc. It will be interesting to see how it casts. It has the potential to be a tippet twister. Cool fly though.
