Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "The Roe Blue & Roe Purple," 1996. Includes the following caption: The Roe Blue & Roe Purple wet-fly trout patterns are attributed to Bill Monaghan, a fly-tyer on the River Roe at the town of Linavady, Northern Ireland. These attractive designs were originally created as salmon flies using goat hair dyed purple and blue, now superseded by seal hair and smaller hooks. Until the mid-1990s, fly-fishing in North America was generally synonymous with wet-flies. But as fishing flourished, trout became increasingly selective, which spurred the creation of sophisticated nymph patterns emulating the actual stages of underwater life, plus many accurate imitations of emerging adult insects."

Caddisflies represent an astonishing 50 per cent of the Grand River's invertebrates, and unlike Ontario's Mayflies - which live for only a day - the Caddisfly's productive life-cycle can last for a month or more."
