Hatches 2011: A Furling Adventure by Al & Gretchen Beatty

Hatches 2011: A Furling Adventure by Al & Gretchen Beatty

When we put the words “furl, furling and furled” into an Internet search engine, we expected to get something about fly tying. Instead we learned about social networks, wind turbines and sailing. Fly tying was so far down the list we didn’t pursue the search beyond the top couple pages. We had to add the […]

Hatches 2011: Tiers From Across the Pond – Rune Andre Stokkebekk

The instructional portion of this presentation features a buzzer pattern that has been very successful for me. The most important feature in this pattern is the stretch tubing, which gives a nice translucent effect quite close to the natural. Most of the time trout look at this fly from below. When you look at this […]

Hatches 2011: A Life Full of Squid by Steve Silverio

Hatches 2011: A Life Full of Squid by Steve Silverio

My relationship with stripers and squid has been an almost life long affair. I remember summer nights as a kid, jigging for squid under pier lights and trying to “stink ink” my fishing partners. As we lifted up the pale white specters that clung to our jigs, they transformed into erupting black fountains of slimy […]

I would like to introduce you one of my special CDC dry flies. This fly pattern matches a group of delicate yellow mayflies. It works well in the slow-flowing rivers of the Eifel. It can be fished as a dun pattern on the surface, or as an emerger in the surface film. In either case, […]

In the Rena River, caddis pupae hatch in enormous numbers and often make their way across the currents at high speeds. The trout take them really hard, so the fishing is action-packed from start to finish. The Foamblingpupa often yields great results. I always start with a few dead-drift casts with the pattern. If that […]

Hatches 2011: Parafoam Dry Flies by Alex Cerveniak

Hatches 2011: Parafoam Dry Flies by Alex Cerveniak

The dry fly has been evolving for more than 100 years. It started in England, crossed the Atlantic, and then took the world by storm in the Catskills. Despite the fact that the Catskill-style dry flies are still widely used today, Catskill patterns are plagued by issues that fly tiers have been trying to overcome […]

Hatches 2011: The Sasquatch by Nick Granato

Hatches 2011: The Sasquatch by Nick Granato

A few years back I joined a fly swap on Drake Magazine’s forum. Since it was my first swap, with people from all over the country who target any number of species, I found myself a little perplexed as to which pattern to tie. Since the streamer was to go to quite a diverse group […]

Hatches 2011: Geezus Lizard and Texas Ringworm by Jay Zimmerman

Hatches 2011: Geezus Lizard and Texas Ringworm by Jay Zimmerman

The Geezus Lizard and Texas Ringworm are two bass flies that have finally evened the playing field. They have allowed fly fishermen to dabble into the not-so-secret voodoo world of conventional bass anglers worldwide. Their existence was born of a desire to find a viable fly rod application for lessons I’d learned in youth about […]

Hatches 2011: Emerging Patterns – Tying the Missing Link by Russ Forney

Hatches 2011: Emerging Patterns – Tying the Missing Link by Russ Forney

For some, a flurry of mayflies hovering over the water is the initial sign of a hatch. In reality, though, insect activity might have been churning frenetically below the water’s surface for many hours before. Emergence begins well before the first dun pops off the water, and so does some of the most productive fishing. […]
