Some Classic Wet Flies from Bergman’s Trout

These are some wet flies from Trout (1938) by Ray Bergman. They are not his patterns, they were just published in his book among the popular patterns of his time. They were tied by a man from Oregon, Stanley Miller, and they were so well done, and I liked the photo that I decided to post them here for my readers to enjoy.

Bob Wilson,

Bob Wilson, Orangto, Ferguson, Cupsuptic, Pope, Sabbatus. On the right: Tomah Joe, Jay Blue, Sabbatus, unidentified (thought my best guess is that it’s a Sallie Scott), and Neverwas. All flies tied by Stanley Miller of Oregon.

Stanley did a very nice job on these patterns.

    Beautiful flies. Can I ask what hook you are using and what size these are? They look pretty large. I love it!

      Hi Curtis;
      I did not tie these flies, my friend Stanley Miller in Oregon did. He only sent me the photo, but I believe they are tied on vintage Mustad wet fly hooks, #3906, and probably size #6. Thank you very much for your comment, I’m glad you liked these flies! Stanley did some great tying on these patterns.
