Swing by Jason's blog to check out his rendition of the of the WW!
Tech Info-Charcoal, Nu Pastel on kraft colored shipping paper.
Went big on this one! 22" x 31". Took 25 minutes to complete. One thing that I wish I would have done was to step back from the piece more as I was developing it. I was a bit concerned about the time due to the scale, that I just hunkered in and did not step back to view proportions.
The WW is another one of those "Gotta Have" flies in your box. They work great for many fish species.
According to the text I have found, this fly was developed by Don Martinez who lived in Chicago. Don was a resident of Chicago for 30 years and was also one of the founding members of the Izaak Walton League.
Below are some in progress shots my wife Janine took while I was working. The images give you get an idea of the scale of this piece.
