David Roberts is a fly tier from the school of Polly Rosborough. He ties exquisite flies in the smallest of sizes, and fishes them over the most sophisticated of fish in the State of Jefferson. David’s love of Bamboo Rods and his tiny flies have been the undoing of many a big fish. Craftsmanship may be the key to under- standing Dave Roberts. The excellence of his work can be seen in the flies he ties, the rods he fishes, and the classes he teaches.
In this issue of The Jefferson Journal, three of Southern Oregon's fly tiers are celebrated. Bob Quigley ties his newest creation: The Mutant May Fly. Paul Miller plays a little more music and ties another of his steelhead flies. And, we take you back in time to watch Polly Rosborough tie his Casual Dress.
