  1. […] fly – a fly that did not match anything found in nature.  Perhaps the first trout to take your Silver Doctor wet fly, breathlessly purchased from the Spring Edition of the Cabelas catalogue when you were 14 […]

    Dear Don,
    I am currently writing a book about my father Gordon Goodwin who was in the Pathfinders, Bomber Command in WW2.He trained in Canada as did many Australians with RAAF.
    While in Montreal in early 1940’s he talked of going fishing for salmon using a Silver Doctor Wet Fly. I have included this in my story. I wish to include this fly in a montage picture for the front cover of the book.
    Would it be possible to ask you to make one for me and send to Australia?

    It is magnificent. Tell me how much it would cost and also postage. Also how best to pay you.

    My name and address are: Paul Goodwin
