Irish Fly Tyer Lawrence Finney, has been busy these days with a hectic schedule, teaching fly tying, doing fly tying demonstrations, and workshops while running his  web-based business, Finney's Flies. With all that he has still found time to submit flies for the Contributing Fly Tyer Series, and as a result, his many contributions have moved him into the Contributing Fly Tyer Gold Category. Here, Lawrence has contributed flies that fit the theme for this issue  "All That Glitters is Not Gold". So browse through these fly selections and see if you can get some ideas for your own flies. And as always, you can read more about Lawrence and his flies on his contributing fly tyer page, The Flies of Lawrence Finney.
