One of the greatest innovators of fly tying. In the 1960’s. Joseph Bates Jr, acknowledged that Keith’s Thunder Creek Flies “are as true to life as artificials can be.” Keith’s book, Tying and Fishing the Thunder Creek Series was first published in 1973. Thirty three years later, it has been revised and published in collaboration with David Klausmeyer. Working with another great fly tyer, Charlie Krom, Keith and Charles co-authored Hair Wing Atlantic Salmon Flies in 1981, which is considered a classic. Now at 84, Keith continues to travel, fish, and promote fly tying to the next generation.
