Classic Footage of Frank Sawyer

Frank Sawyer, is the inventor of the Sawyer Pheasant Tail Nymph and a number of derivatives of this famous fly. This video is one of Frank giving a demonstration of how to tie the nymph and a dry fly sometime in the 1950’s. The credits state that this is the only known surviving footage of Frank Sawyer actually tying a nymph. It’s a piece of history folks.
