    Default MRA Auction XII Lot 57: Two dozen+ flies by Roy Christie

    LOT 57

    #16 - #22 reversed parachute emergers - black gnat, grannom, bwo, olives, March Brown and a couple of wee caddis.

    Two dozen flies tied by the renowned Roy Christie - actually 32 flies arrived in post, of which 21 are reversed parachute patterns.

    Many years ago Roy realised that the majority of commercial flies were unrelated to trout food so he invented the Reversed Parachute emerger.
    Roy is of course a member of the school of 'presentation over recipe', on the principle that fish will prefer to accept the footprint of food in the taking zone, rather than eat a piece of silk, fur and feather wrongly presented.

    Kindly donated by Himself




    Trout fishermen revere the trout; trout, on the other hand, unaware of their sublime standing in man's world, revere nothing, including man, a creature they seem to view with special contempt. Nihilism is a rare trait in fish but trout are full of it. The old men liked that.
