Copperhead Crab- by Capt. Mad Mike Benson

Capt. Mad Mike Benson shows how to tie his Copperhead Crab, a deadly for tailing redfish in the grass. I have personally had multiple redfish eat this fly… then I promptly miss a hookset or break them off. On a trip to North Carolina last summer I “borrowed” a few to take home, and they […]

The Sickada- Curtis Fry

The Sickada- Curtis Fry

In honor of the epic 17-year Cicada emergence this year, I was on an R&D mission for a new fly design. I also wanted the fly to float well enough to support bigger sized droppers, so you’ll see this Cicada pattern incorporates as much foam as possible.
