Skip Morris’s Trout-Fly Proportion Chart

Skip Morris has written many books and several hundred magazine articles on tying flies, so you can rest assured he knows what he’s talking about.

After a few decades of research, Skip published a Trout-Fly Proportion Chart and sold it until it went out of print. Now, he’s offering it to you for free.

Below here you’ll see a sample page of the chart. We recommend you print all three pages and keep it with your fly-tying gear.

To get all three pages in full size, click through to his website.
