Vermont Trout Streams: A Fly Angler’s Guide to the Best book has had a great turnout so far. Tons of super useful info with some nice personal touches from guides spread throughout the state. There were several flies featured in this book as well, all originally from VT, designed and tied by some fantastic anglers.
The three flies are: Governor Aiken (tied by Rhey Plumley), The Gihon River Special (tied by Tom Sheltra) and the Lamoille River Muskrat (tied by Bob Shannon)
We were lucky enough that Rhey was willing to tie us a pile of his fly, which is also the Vermont State fly. We took the Gihon River Special into our own hands and Bob was able to whip up some Lamoille River Muskrats. Included in this fly assortment is 2 Governor Aikens, 3 Gihon River Specials and 3 Lamoille River Muskrats. Choose to get the kit with or without the fly box. This fly assortment would make for a great gift for just about any angler out there! Out of these three flies the Governor Aiken is the only well known one, so you can almost bet the Gihon River Special and the Lamoille River Muskrat aren’t already in your box!
