S1800: Olive Collard Heron Fly
Article written and flies tied by Scott Biron
This is a version of Nick Lambrou’s Olive Heron fly pattern. This version is a simple two material pattern tied on a Sprite S1800 in size 10. Every fall I end the season fishing a remote pond in New Hampshire with a good friend of mine. We fish it in memory of a fellow angler and fly tyer Ellis Hatch who passed away several years ago. In fact the land surrounding the pond is named after Ellis because of his many contributions to promoting and preserving wildlife in the state.
Hook: Sprite S1800 #10 & 12
Wing: Lemon woodduck
Collar: Olive Ewing Hen
