For sale here is the earliest example of a Green Drake tied by Bob Mead, the recognized authority in realistic fly tying. This is Bob's first "Green Drake" tied in 1985 and framed in the original box he did together with his brother. Bob's most well-known for his "Praying Mantis", which currently sells for $750 and has a waiting list of over a year. Pretty much every known realistic tyer today will mention Bob as the one that got them started. Bob did a realistic tying article in Fly Tyer magazine for years, starting back in the 80's. Super nice, historical piece. This is a obviously another one-of-a-kind item offered here at Vintage Fly Tackle. Don't miss out on this one!
