How to Tie Jack Gartside’s Sparrow

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Tim Flagler demonstrates how to tie a version of Jack Gartside’s Sparrow using Brahma Hen instead of Gartside’s preferred pheasant feathers.

“In terms of materials, this fly differs markedly from Jack Gartside’s original but I think the overall effect is the same,” says Flagler.  “The versatility of the Sparrow can’t be overstated.”

    A wooly bugger by any other name is still a bugger. No disrespect to Mr Gartside.
