In this week's tying video, Tim Flagler ties the Ken Lockwood streamer, which is named for Ken Lockwood (d. 1949), a conservationist and former outdoor writer from the Garden State. And of course, the Ken Lockwood Gorge section of the South Branch of the Raritan River is also named for him. He wrote a weekly column titled "Out In the Open" in the Newark Evening News, which in time became the Newark Star Ledger, for which I wrote a weekly fly fishing column for years later. Like most streamer patterns, the Ken Lockwood is attractive to both fly fishermen and fish.
Tie some up. And stay with us, I'm not done with the hand shaped fungus issue; I've lost too much sleep over it to let it go. Seriously.
Sharpen your hooks!
