Bill Lovelace at Albany ExpositionBill Lovelace continues to be a major contributor to Salmonfly.Net with his latest submissions to the "All That Glitters is Not Gold" issue. The truth be known, I had trouble coming up with a theme for this issue, and it was Bill's idea to use this one. I thought it was great and knew right away that he would come up with some great ideas and submissions.

About these fly submissions, Bill wrote:

I had time today to set down and tie a few flies and work on some files to submit. I had 2 Foolís Gold variations already tied. This morning I sat down to make 2 variations of the Golden Demon which will be the featured fly at the 2009 NW Fly Tyers and Fly Fishing Expo. Here I am in part of Oregonís gold rush territory so I think they are appropriate. The Foolís Gold was a pattern that caught my eye when I started tying for steelhead years ago.
