About the Sooty Bumble Trout Fly

Rod Tye works within the traditions and lore’s of Irish fly design dating back to the early 19c.
Whilst many of the flies are original in some sense, they would not claim to be "inventions" in the strictest sense of that term, but rather the combination of the accumulated experience of others and himself, across time. The flies are made according to how they perform, and in many ways, they make themselves.
