Christmas Snowman
By Benjamin Hart (benjo) and Scott Smith (salovin), Montana

Winter in Montana makes you do strange things like tying this fly. Scott came up with it on a snowy night last winter and it's been a local sensation ever since. You can practice spinning deer hair and make Christmas presents at the same time. It has proven itself a great fly for housecats and small children so you might want to pinch down that barb or consider gluing something over it to prevent a holiday disaster, like a small bead. Merry Christmas.

Tying the Snowman

Now sit back and enjoy a Christmas beverage. If you tied this fly, you earned it.
