Broadhead, as you will see below, is a man of few words, but that is
OK because as the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand
I think you will enjoy Ken's take on some traditional flies tied
with beads and tubes. They are styles that we have not fully
explored on Salmonfly.Net but deserve our attention. Of course,
Ken's talent for tying make them even more enjoyable to look at and
might even inspire some of you to try them out at the bench yourself. So with that said, I hope you enjoy reading what he has to say about
himself below, and spending some time yourself looking at his fly pattern contributions to Salmonfly.Net.
Hi my name is Ken Broadhead and itís an honor to be included with this sites great tyers and fisherman. I am 68 yrs. old and retired. Iíve been married for 42 yrs.; have 3 children and 11 grandchildren. Iím from the San Francisco Bay area and started fishing with my dad when I was just a pup. Öbeen fishing in one form or another ever since.
I started fly fishing and fly tying around 1970. I donít fish much anymore nowadays but I still enjoy tying flies - anything from dries to balsawood poppers with the only exception being the classic salmon flies. I have no patience for it.
