Wes,
I have tubs of flies that are not sorted . These are flies given to me by the 
original tyers. I have tyed at a number of shows with Tom and he gave me an 
original Pig Boat about 21 years ago. I would not know where to find it now 
except going through the plastic tubs that I have the flies in. Due to some 
problems I have, I am not able to do that. Looking at the photo, I am pretty 
sure it is not the original. I sat next to Tom many times and watched him tie 
that fly.
I recently sold my book collection so I can't look it up. I had Tom's books.
Tony

I have Tom's last book and will look and see if it's in it when I get home from 
work.  I almost positive  he never tied anything with a cone head.

Subject:  [VFB] How far off is this fly from a Tom Nixon original?

Hi VFB,

I am researching the origins and possible original recipe (if this is actually 
a Tom Nixon creation) for this fly:

http://chemprof.tripod.com/midnite2.htm


Is this a Tom Nixon original tied in the way he did it, or a variation created 
by someone else that is distantly related to Nixon's creations?

I know that Nixon did the Calcasieu Pig Boat, but am wondering about the 
pedigree of the pattern configuration linked above.

Anybody know?


Thanks,
Wes
Bend, Oregon
