“Pinned to a drawer above his fly-tying bench is a note that reads: ‘Next month,’ with a laundry list from one of his clients: a dozen and a half green drake parachutes, a dozen No. 16 Griffith gnats, a dozen No. 16 black gnats, a dozen No. 16 Adams.” Sam Cook profiles Wisconsin’s David Lucca, who before scaling back tied almost 15,000 flies a year, and whose sparse ties and Hexagenia flies have made him something of a fly tying celebrity.
