    New Trout Fly Called "Williams' Special"

    Joel La Follette - Wednesday, May 31, 2017
    New Trout Fly Called "Williams' Special"

    Stone Fly Made True to Life By Portland Tier - Comes in Two Size Hooks

    A brand new trout fly has made its appearance in Maupin and by those who have tried them have proven to be the best ever. The new fly is called "Williams' Special" and was made after a pattern supplied by Johnny Williams of this city.

    Last summer Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Motley, Portland, were visitors at the Maupin Camp grounds. While here Mrs. Motley told of being a fly tier and Johnny Williams caught several small stone flies and asked could she duplicate them. The lady said she could, thereupon the camp ground man gave an order, specifying the flies must be true to the sample. Saturday he received an initial shipment of the flies. They have been tried and exceeded all expectations, those using them making good catches of good trout. The flies received by Johnny come in two sizes - 12's and 14’s - and are as true to nature as is possible to make them.

    Mr. Motley writes that among her orders for flies this spring has been one from President Coolidge, while Congressman Hawley has ordered many for friends at Washington, D. C.

    Meier & Frank of Portland want the exclusive sale of the new fly. The hook on which the fly is tied comes direct from Oslo, Norway, none of the kind desired being made in this country. The first order for hooks placed by Mrs. Motley brot but 1500, and as these have been tied and the demand so great, the lady has ordered a large supply to be delivered as soon as possible.

    Multnomah Anglers club members who have used the Williams Special, are enthusiastic over them. Mrs. Motley searched the state over for the right feathers for the special finally securing what she wanted from near Roseburg.

    Has No Desire to Arrest Violators
    Therefore Asks That the Laws Be Adhered To

    With fishing season now open Harold Clifford, state game warden, make an urgent request that all citizen observe the law that have been made for the protection of fish.

    "We have no desire to arrest men or women for violation of the law," he said last week. "We want them to know, that all citizens of Oregon they are harming their state and themselves by angling in closed streams, taking more than the legal limit or catching fish under six inches in length. Our warden make it their business to educate the fishermen. They make arrests only when they find fishermen willfully and viciously violating the laws. If a man is angling for trout he is entitled to sixty fish in one week they are his fish if he can catch them. When he takes more than that number he makes it necessary for the warden to do his duty and make an arrest that will mean punishment."
