An easy 2 hook baitfish pattern using the GCO 105 hook in sz2.
A great variation on the wooly bugger, the Sparkle Dad utilizes some new synthetic materials to make a great streamer pattern.
A very basic, but cleanly, tied nymph. With the basic foundation shown, the color combinations are truely endless. This is a great nymph pattern that should be in and anglers box.
Dronlee shows his great take on a Surf candy fly, by using stick on fingernails for the head.
Not every fly requires expensive materials to look good and catch fish. While digging through the Hatches flytyingforum.com, I found this “Glove Bug” pattern. This pattern uses a glove that is normally used for washing a car to create a simple, clean, and effective pattern.
Jay Zimmerman’s Backstabber is the benchmark for carp flies, just like the wolley bugger and adams are for trout. A general and easy to tie pattern, the backstabber should be in everyone’s warm water box. Colors and size can be adjusted to match local conditions.
A very simple representation of a sand eel for you Striper Fishermen out there. If you like the looks of the glass style sand eels that utilize epoxy, here is an updated version of the same using Clear Cure Goo instead of Epoxy. These are very quick ties and just plain catch fish. Enjoy See […]
An epoxy back mayfly nymph imitation. The flashback on this nymph is made from Hareline Dubbin’s Purple Haze Holographic Fibers. An excellent nymph to imitate Baetis mayflies. Tie in sizes 16-20. I used Clear Cure Goo for the epoxy back. After experimenting with CCG I discovered that the extra fine accessory tips are a must for applying the small amounts needed for epoxy backs on small nymphs.
Norm Norlander shows how to tie the Bunny Bugger. A great searching pattern, the use of rabbit dubbing adds lots of movement that is sure to attract fish. Colors can be easily adapted to location and conditions.
Hans Weilenmann shows his great emerger pattern. The colors can be adapted to meet local hatches.
The RW40 is a slight variation of the WD40. The change is subtle just add a glass bead in the front. I started tying this fly a few years ago and has been a great producer when fish are keying in on Midges and BWO’s. For Midges I stick with black and red. For BWO’s […]
“This is a Prince variation that I have been fishing recently. While I love the original Prince, I also love to work with different materials and see if the work as good or better than the original. This pattern, so far, has worked just as well. Try them in red and chartreuse for an attractor […]
Step 1: The materials My buzzer fly uses only four materials: two kinds of thread and two sorts of tinsel. I have found it practical to build the abdomen of the buzzer fly with stretchy kind of body thread (in this case UNI Stretch) which lays flat and allows for a uniformly narrow profile. On […]
The Payczech Nymph is a Czech Style nymph imitating caddis larvae. Tied according to Czech rule (slim, heavy, shellback, curved hook) and is ideally consisting of a hook, thread, weight, shellback, rib, abdomen, thorax, and head. Due to a heavy snow pack year in Utah this past season, runoff seemed like it would never end. […]
