Lionheart is an original pattern from Joe Gablick. It is one of several that he has ingeniously designed with a "University" theme.

Joe, who is from Lower Burrell, Pa. has been tying for about 30 years. He conducts a flyfishing school that emphasizes relaxation, casting, and enjoying nature's surroundings. Take a moment to visit his website, The Contented Angler.

You can read about Joe and see many more of his flies by visiting The Flies of Joe Gablick.
