Lucian Vasies shows how to tie his Quill Nymph. A very life-like pattern that makes use of stripped peacock herl, which is easily prepared by rubbing a herl with a pencil eraser.
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 […]
Carl Pennington Fly Tying Demo at Ghillies Fly Shop in Colorado Springs, CO. The D-Rib Golden Stone is one of the coolest flies I have seen. It is a perfect match to our local stones and is a very durable fly. Try this in any of the stretchs of the S. Platte River. Carl is […]
Dave Henry has taken on a great new topic… 2handed rods for trout. While mainly a tool for targeting steelhead and salmon, 2handed rods (commonly called spey or switch rods) have a loyal following looking to expand their horizons; taking a rod that has its origins in swinging flies and applying it to nymphing. Dave does a great job breaking down tackle and technique.
Lucian Vasies shows a great mayfly nymph. A segmented body and rabbit thorax give this fly a great look. Also the gills are an added touch that are not normally added.
Davie McPhail shows how to tie his Golden Stonefly Nymph. The detailed instruction shows a fly that is not only a productive, but is very realistic.
Jindra Lacko shows an 8-step deep fishing caddis pattern. By using a jig style hook, you can be sure to loose less flies as the hook fishes point up. Size and colors can be adjusted for local hatches. Hook- Jig style Bead- 4.6 mm Tungsten Lead- flat lead Tip- UNI Neon thread Butt dubbing- hot […]
Lucian Vasies shows an innovative technique for tying nymphs. His lifelike gills are fish catchers.
A take on the classic LaFontaine Emergent Sparkle Pupa. This fly incorporates a bead head and a UV chewee skin body.
The Pheasant tail nymph is one of the most effective nymph fly patterns ever created. In this fly tying video from OregonFlyFishingBlog.com Ice Dub from Hareline Dubbin is added to the thorax of the fly to help durability and flash to the fly. Also, this pattern incorporates rubber legs for some added action
Theo Anest ties Barr’s Tungstone. This is a great trout nymph from the mind of the Copper John.
Davie shows a great style of nymph popular in Poland. While the body is the same as a typical Pheasant Tail nymph, there is a unique thorax and head. Make sure to watch to see Davie’s pink dropper he fishes with this fly.
The Blue Winged Olive or BWO is one of the most important insects to the angler. CaddisFlyShop demonstrates how to tie a relatively simple nymph imitation of the Blue Winged Olive using UV Ice Dub in light olive color. Using UV Ice Dub on some patterns can make a nymph show and perform better than […]
Davie McPhail ties his Mahongany Mayfly Nymph. This pattern can easily be adapted to match any mayfly nymph. Notice the tapered underbody that Davie builds with his lead and the tag ends of the tail biots.
Chris Warren ties a a clean nymph on a pro-tube. While trout nymphs are not typical ties on tubes, Chis shows a great way to maximize this style of fly.
