This rendition of The Jock Scott was tied by Oregon fly fisherman and tyer Dave Potts. Dave worked as a commercial tyer for several years and now enjoys tying antique replicas of salmon and trout fly patterns for his business, "Victorian Flies". Look for more more of his flies in the weeks ahead as a Salmonfly.Net contributing fly tyer.
