General Discussion / Wlat Holman Passses

I received this email yesterday, and I know that many of Walt's friends would like to know.

Dear IFFF and FFF-South Eastern Council Colleagues

The Southeastern Council has lost a very dear friend and member today.  It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of 2013 FFF Buzz Buszek Award winner and three time FFF-SEC Fly Tier of the Year, Walt Holman.  Walt passed away at 6:30AM this morning.

Many fly tiers, including myself, have been blessed to sit at Walt’s table and learn to tie foil covered poppers from the inventor of this unique and beautiful tying technique.  Walt was a living fly tying master, legend and true gentleman who represented the very best  of service, ingenuity, giving, sharing and fly tying art in the IFFF and FFF-Southeastern Council.  He is a great man of huge impact to all of us who were blessed to associate, fish and tie flies with him.  More than that, Walt was a very loving person and a very dear friend to many of us.  Walt was a military veteran who served during the Korean War and an engineer by trade.

Walt’s funeral will be held in Madison, Alabama at 1:00PM this Wednesday.  I do not know any more details at this time.  He is survived by his wife Gennie (lwandgp@knology.net) and many who love him. Walt will be very much missed by all of us.

God Bless and Tight Lines

Fly Patterns / Panfish Wet Fly : Panfish Nomad
« Last post by KYratchethead on March 22, 2015, 05:53:15 AM »


I am constantly looking for NEW FLY PATTERNS and buying NEW FLY TYING BOOKS. The book that
this pattern was adapted from, Flies, Ties, and Techniques[/I] was purchased at Ollies in
Richmond, KY for $4.99. This pattern was included in the book as a Stillwater Pattern from the U.K.
and after seeing it, my reaction was that it would make a GREAT Panfish Fly with a little adapta-
tion, i.e. the use of a Beadchain section for Eyes and the addition of Rubber Hackle Legs. I'm not quite
sure what the fish think it is, but THEY SURE DO LIKE IT
!

Did not get to the pond where I wanted to fish.
Missed many more as they were not hitting very hard.
But it still was fun.

General Discussion / Re: carp anyone?

People feed them on the boardwalks there, so flies I have tied that imitate food pellets, bread, and Cheetos (yes, Cheetos) are really effective.
Well, if you're going to go non-traditional by chasing carp, might as well go all the way by imitating Cheetos.

I haven't played that game in a few years up there.  They are fun to hook, tough to land there.  Lots of wood, rock, and concrete for them to use to break you off.

I just did a few of these for the carp box last night, Barry Reynolds' Carp Bitter.  I was experimenting with Cohen's Carp Dub.  This pattern is deadly and these are the two colors I use most.
