Welcome to the show, It's October 2009. This is a special installment of yet another show that continues our theme from the Katydid. Mike Schmidt is our guest fly tyer. Mike Schmidt is the owner of Angler's Choice flies and is an incredibly talented fly tyer. Mike loves traditional winged wet flies. We captured him tying this classic pattern, the Parmachene Belle, at a local coffee shop in front of an audience of attentive fly fishing club members. Mike demonstrates excellent technique for tying traditional flies and shows us one that is truly deserving of a place in our fly boxes. The Parmachene Belle is a known as a brook trout favorite and a true classic!
