Talking Turkey to a Trout by Russ Forney

Talking Turkey to a Trout by Russ Forney

“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.

Fly Patterns: A BWO Emerger, a Meaty Streamer, and a Gorgeous Full Dressed Salmon Fly

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.

Spring Olives by Russ Forney

Spring Olives by Russ Forney

Sand Creek is a pretty little piece of trout water that harbors some very fussy fish. Clear water in a small creek demands a quiet approach; casting from the bank is a good strategy when fishing small flies to springtime trout. Photo by Russ Forney Springtime in Wyoming can be pretty elusive. Just when the […]

Horsing Around by Russ Forney

Horsing Around by Russ Forney

Horse hair is one of Wyoming’s most abundant natural resources. Coal, oil, and natural gas are the media darlings, but horse hair is everywhere in the Cowboy State. To a fly tier, it would be a shame to waste all that beautiful long hair when it looks so good wrapped around a fly hook. It […]

Tying the Stud by Loren Williams

Tying the Stud by Loren Williams

What’s the saying? Necessity is the mother of invention? This little bug fits in there somewhere. I had been searching my creative place for a very simple to tie, light colored nymph that offered just a bit of that “ooohhhh yyyeah!” look when wet. The typical light colored dubbings, quills, biots, and threads just weren’t doing what I had in my mind. I wanted sexy, not cute.

Pressured fish see lots of cute!

Flower Power: Flies From the Garden by Russ Forney

Flower Power: Flies From the Garden by Russ Forney

Have you ever been ambushed by an idea? Not a mere suggestion or nagging intuition, but a full force, frontal assault of the psyche. Somewhere in our move to Wyoming four years ago and while exploring the surrounding hills, I was smitten by the notion of dying fly tying materials with flower pigments. The relentless “what if” that plagues an otherwise sound mind propelled excursions to identify, collect, and extract pigments from wildflowers. It is hard to grasp the logic of such behavior as it may not exist; the idea just showed up one day and would not be persuaded to leave.

Underwire Support: The Secret to a Shapely Body by Russ Forney

Underwire Support: The Secret to a Shapely Body by Russ Forney

Sorry Victoria, the secret is out: underwire support is the key to a flattering figure. Strategically placed and properly fashioned, short segments of wire are an excellent foundation for the broad, flattened abdomen characteristic of large nymphs. The shapely bulk of underbody wire makes an attractive chassis for subsurface flies, providing just the right visual […]
