Learn To Tie The Bugmeister Fly Pattern
With John Perry, the Pattern Originator
Winter came early to the northern Rockies, so to pass the time, I headed down to my local fly shop, the Rock Creek Mercantile. On Saturday, John Perry would teach his signature fly, the Bugmeister pattern, at the fly tyers round table.
A long-time Montana outfitter and guide, John Perry lives on Rock Creek. He originated the dry fly attractor pattern during his years as a guide on the rivers where he guides. John is quite an animated character and loves to share stories, fly tying techniques, and his knowledge of Montana rivers.
The video was edited to only his instruction on tying the Bugmeister. I hope to do an outtake video of the numerous stories and antidotes he delights his audience with at a later time.
