Curtis Fry spins up a Lemon Lime Bugger, in a tribute to Dennis Brakke.
I’ve followed Curtis for years when he was just publishing his fly tying videos on YouTube. I knew I liked him when he published what is possibly the best fly tying video of all time, Lego My Fly. It’s a must see.
I’m excited to see he, and buddy Clark Pierce now have their own fly tying website, Fly Fish Food. Great stuff being published there, so check’em out.
