This wonderful version of the Syd Glasso Sol Duc is tied by Washington Contributing Fly Tyer, Stu Farnham. You can see more of Stu's flies at The Flies of Stu Farnham. See his notes about the Sol Duc below.

Stu's Notes: The Sol Duc one of a series of hackle-wing steelhead flies developed by the late Syd Glasso of Forks, WA. Syd was known as a master tier of full dress Atlantic Salmon flies in the style of Ernest Crosfield, and is credited with introducing the spey fly to Northwest steelheaders. This fly is named for one of the famous steelhead streams around Glasso's home on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. Glasso caught the largest fly-caught steelhead in the U.S. in 1959 fishing this fly in the river for which it is named.
