Polly Rosborough's Casual Dress


E. H. 'Polly' Rosborough was part of that generation of fly tiers and anglers that brought rise to the "golden age" of American fly fishing. This pattern was one of his earliest and most respected creations, dating from his early years in Oregon prior to World War II. It's a classic that is as effective today as it was seven decades ago.

Because There Are Great Angling Opportunities The Other Guys Just Won't Talk About...


Rated "Global Class"

by Global Fly Fisher!


"There's a phrase in Hungarian, nincs miert, that means literally "there is no why."  Perhaps it's as futile and foolish, at this late date, to ask "why fly fishing?" as it is to ask "why jazz?"  As Fats Waller said: "Lady, if you've got to ask, you'll never know."

- Arnold Gingrich
