When simplicity and versatility meet, here comes the Renegade. This fly is a classic Fore and Aft style fly, and a favorite of the famous Ernest Hemingway, and for good reason. Created by Taylor “Beartracks” Williams in the late ’20s this fly is a go to attractor pattern. It can be tied and fished in a wide range of sizes to meet your fishing needs. Don’t get too caught up in what this fly is imitating and enjoy the takes!
