Finn Raccoon Pike Streamer – by Holger Lachmann

Finn Raccoon Pike Streamer – by Holger Lachmann

Finn Raccoon is an awesome material for big pike flies. The long, soft hair moves really well in the water. It’s also very durable. If you don’t use too much of the leather it’s also not so difficult to cast, because the hair will not soak as much as water as rabbit fur for example […]

Highly influenced by Brad Bohen’s Hang Time and fortified with Clear Cure Goo El Chupacabra is a staple in my Esox arsenal. After years of fishing and tweaking it’s a great confidence pattern that can be tied in a just about any color scheme you can imagine.

Slippery Pete- by Matt Grajewski

Slippery Pete- by  Matt Grajewski

Slippery Pete is a fly I tie to imitate the profile of panfish like bluegills and crappie. The main purpose of the fly was for muskie, but big largemouth bass love bluegills. I’ve had good success with it in smaller sizes for bass. I’ve found it doesn’t need to be tied in colors to match […]

Scientific Angler Mastery Textured Titan line

Scientific Angler Mastery Textured Titan line

You wouldn’t drive a railroad spike with a small finishing hammer… and you don’t want to throw big streamers with a long fine taper dry fly line. The Titan has a lot of mass up front in the double taper. which allows for the delivery of big flies. You also get the ability to generate fast line speed with minimal backcast… which in non-geek-speak means less chance of crushing yourself with a large hook and more time with the fly in the water.

I love fishing poppers for bass, it’s nearly as exciting to me as big brown trout on dry flies. The instructions below will guide you through tying my favorite popper […]

Ghetto Tramp- by Nick Granato

Ghetto Tramp- by Nick Granato

Ghetto Tram’s conception came to be one fateful snowy cold day in January on a trip to Cabelas. The reason for the trip was to pilfer the gear section of hooks and a few other odds and ends. The three of us split up and shopped around for a little bit. After a while we all ended up on the same isle at the same time… This isle was home to the now beloved Bass Skirt.
