Border Collie was originated and tied by Contributing Fly Tyer John Wood. Take a look at his contributor page, The Flies of John Wood, to see many more of his flies.

John's Notes: This pattern was designed in honor of our late border collie, Butch. Though Iíve yet to take a steelhead or salmon on it many river brown trout have come to hand using this pattern.
