Sir Conrad



I attended a TU meet...

I attended a TU meeting in Hazleton, Pa. back in 1980 where Poul was the speaker. He presented a 35mm slide review of how he ties a Sir Conrad salmon fly. I am a tier of the easier salmon flies and never forgot this well delivered tying lesson.

It was tied ...

It was tied in tribute to an American TV actor - William Conrad I believe. I can look up the reference. Email me and I will look for you - Thanks.

I would love to know...

I would love to know the history of this fly, I am of the Conrad clan and I am a amature fly tier. I just found this fly on the web and am very excited to see a classic fly named after my family.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
