Im looking to see if anyone would be interested in tying a few flies for me- willing to negotiate a price. Im looking to get a fly I was introduced to on the Dean River several years ago- it is called an "airplane". Is a dry fly skater. I was given the name and a contact email for the gentleman who tied them for the place I was staying( Don Williams from Prince George BC). So I have tried to contact him via the email I was given but its no longer a correct email. I have also tried to look up Don Williams in the phone book- still cannot contact him. I would really like to have a few of these flies in my box as they have worked great on the Dean- effective, skate well and unsinkable.

Would like to see if anyone else would be willing to tie some up for me- the place I stay usually stocks them- but for the past 2 years by the time I get there in mid September they are all taken.
I have attached some photos and would even be willing to send one to someone to look at. He also tied several other flies I would really like to get: Dragon fly, Red dean river lantern

Thanks for considering
Bigfoot

That is one very interesting dressing. I'm curious as to the recipe. Tail and wings appear to be moose ? What is the body material if you care to share.

Bigfoot, Donnie is one of our guides up on the Kispiox and that is his tie. I have his current email and will give him a shout for you and let you know. PM to fallow. Mark

Fyshhead- Many thanks- I have looked far and near to find Don. I would love it if I could contact him or he contact me. I will send you a PM with my email to pass on to him.

'The unsinkable Molly Brown.'

That's one heck of a fly, I can see why it would float like a cork and shove a lot of surface water around.
