Lucas shows a great tutorial of a emerged/ cripple pattern. With some tweaks to color and size, this can be an effective fly on any body of water.
The Quill Gordon is perhaps one of the most widely known dry flies, originated by Theodore Gordon around the turn of the 20th century. Over 100 years laters Tightlines showcases Allen Landheer’s Quill Gordon Emerger.
This is a spinoff of the Crime Scene Caddis tied by Bob Quigley, who happens to be my favorite fly tyer of all time. Bob passed away this past summer after a battle with cancer. He was a fly tying innovator giving us new patterns and new techniques to catch those finicky spring creek trout.
The parafoam style is an ingenious way of incorporating foam which helps floatability and the para- loop hackle which keeps the hackle on top of the fly which allows the fly to ride better in the surface film. The parafoam style dries make really effective emerger and cripple patterns.
Hans Weilenmann show off his Shuck Raider pattern. Originally an emerger pattern, but could equally effective as a wet fly.
CDC loop wing style of emerger has been around for quite some time. A durable and effective mayfly emerger, this color and size variation is for a sulpher, but can be adapted to meet local mayfly hatches.
Hans Weilenmann shows his great emerger pattern. The colors can be adapted to meet local hatches.
Richard Strolis show how to tie his emerging midge. With small tweaks to color and the rib, this should be a pretty adaptable pattern for any midge.
BWO’s often hatch in big numbers and sometimes the parachute patterns don’t cut it. This pattern is easy to tie and always has a place in our boxes. This BWO emerger pattern can be tailored to match the mayfly naturals in any river. While fishing a small tailwater in Montana I came across a small [...]
John Kavanaugh joins us again and twists up the Last Chance Cornuta Cripple. This is fly is John’s take on Rene Harrop’s deadly Western pattern. It has been adapted for an East Coast hatch, the Cornuta or Large Blue Winged Olive.
I designed this emerger to be used primarily as a dropper fly off of a dry. It has been very productive for me for over a decade. It also ties well on a scud hook. I used to include partridge legs until I got the nor vise but now I find bushy dubbing works just [...]
While this style of fly may appear intimidating, it is an easy tie when the proper steps are followed. Here is Roy’s slideshow of this revolutionary technique.
Denver CO native Carl Pennington ties his Biot Emerger. A great pattern for BWOs and staple for winter tailwaters.
“Talking turkey” is an old idiom referring to a candid discussion. In present use the phrase denotes a matter of business, a factual and straightforward approach to problem solving. This contemporary definition works just fine, unless you are a fly fisherman.
Here at Hatches, we’re always on the lookout for interesting fly patterns. Probably the single greatest resource we have at our disposal for finding them is the Fly Pattern Database (which has grown to over 10,000 fly patterns!). No where else on the web can one find a greater archive of fly patterns, and we would like to thank everyone who has contributed to it. To express our great appreciation, and to make sure “older” patterns aren’t forgotten, we have decided to highlight three fly patterns from the database each week. We’ll share the best of the best, from the past to the present.
