Muddler Minnow

Rylee’s Cripple- by Lucas Langton

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.

Rylee’s Pullover Caddis- by Lucas Langton

You can’t get a more traditional dry fly than an Elk Hair Caddis, there has been thousands if not millions of trout caught on this fly and I’m willing to bet most anglers have at least have one Elk Hair Caddis in their fly box.

My solution is Rylee’s Pullover Caddis.

The Wedding Veil – by GSF Fly Tying

The Wedding Veil was created by Thomas Harvey of Carolina Fly. This pattern utilizes a few newer products out there and will definitely be a great addition to any bass or striper fly fisherman’s box out here on the west coast. Smaller versions can also be tied for trout and I’m already thinking about using a few of the techniques featured here for steelhead swing patterns.
