Ron McQuay the originator of the Anna "K" is a fly tier, guide, and a fixture in the fly fishing world on the White River and Norfork Rivers near Mountain Home, Arkansas. Ron is one of those guy's that knows fly fishing; when Ron speaks, people listen. Ron developed the Anna "K" to use as an emerger pattern to imitate the caddis hatch in the area. However, the fly can be used as a blue-gill or panfish fly. The Anna "K" is named after his granddaughter, but it's anything but a child's fly.
