Idaho fly tyer Clark Lucas, originator of some of the extraordinary spey flies you see on this site, happily displayes a 37 in. Hatchery Chinook Salmon he took using his Salmon Threat Hairwing on the South Fork Salmon River. Photograph taken by Steve Patterson.Idaho native, Clark Lucas was the first fly contributor to Salmonfly.Net, gracing our early pages with his characteristically long-hackled Speys and Dees. Clark, attributes his "addiction" to Spey tying to his instructor and mentor, Master Fly Tyer, Dr. David Burns, from whom he learned "most of what he knows about tying them." You can read much more about Clark and see many of his flies on his main page on this site, The Flies of Clark Lucas .

For this issue, Clark has contributed a set flies inspired by his recent acquisition of a copy of Captain Hale, 1982 (I'd provide a link, but copies of the book are rare), amongst others.
