A soft hackle and March Brown. Two fun little patterns that aren't too flashy but have a ton of movement in the water.
A jumping off point for tying bitter-style shrimp for bonefish.
Crab pattern for fishing the flats.
A simple version of the classic baitfish pattern.
A bunny based tarpon hunter.
A bonefish fly with a little extra action.
A rainbow trout streamer that can be easily modified to look like any baitfish or other freshwater trout, and a Golden Stone nymph with a few twists.
Matt is back on the vise this week tying up a couple cool patterns: a bunny streamer and a caddis nymph.
A popper bodied rainbow trout and an extended-body Hexagenia dry.
Fun poppers starts at the bench and a caddis nymph.
A little bit of everything; articulated streamer, a dry fly, and a stillwater damselfly pattern.
The perfect gateway into tying your own bonefish flies.
A bluegill imitation that drives warm water species crazy!
A beauty of a mayfly pattern, and a great addition to a flybox.
Bead headed steelhead pattern. A little action, a little buggy, and very versatile.
The colors have been changed in honor of the 4th, but this steelhead fly is real.
One of our favorite mayfly imitations.
A jig hook, a hot spot and the perfect amount of flash make this an excellent trout nymph.
A stone that gets down fast. Way down. Real fast.
The bird's nest is a classic, but this version has some new twists and the addition of a hot spot on the wing case.
A versatile aresenal with a bunny streamer, a small softy and a jig!
The nymph version of Matt Callies's Big Arse Soft Hackle. This is a stonefly with all the bells and whistles.
The Jig Bird is a modernized Bird's Nest (on a jig hook of course) and the Awe Shucks is a Green Drake emerger that will have you dreaming about spring.
We're grateful to have Mike demonstrate a couple of his patterns: the Twisto Caddis and Missing Link.
