Ken Broadhead Flies
Hi my name is Ken Broadhead and it’s an honor to be included with this sites great tyers and fisherman. I am 68 yrs. old and retired. I’ve been married for 42 yrs.; have 3 children and 11 grandchildren. I’m from the San Francisco Bay area and started fishing with my dad when I was just a pup. …been fishing in one form or another ever since.
I started fly fishing and fly tying around 1970. I don’t fish much anymore nowadays but I still enjoy tying flies - anything from dries to balsawood poppers with the only exception being the classic salmon flies. I have no patience for it.
If you have any comments, questions, or would like to share an idea, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ken Broadhead, as you will see below, is a man of few words, but that is OK because as the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words". I think you will enjoy Ken's take on some traditional flies tied with beads and tubes. Ken's talent for tying make them even more enjoyable to look at and might even inspire some of you to try them out at the bench yourself. So with that said, I hope you enjoy reading what he has to say about himself below, and spending some time yourself looking at his fly pattern contributions to Salmonfly.Net.
