This week on Loon Live we've got some love for the meat chuckers and the European nymphers, so come one and come all!
Two bugs that have one thing in common: fish eat them! They might be fished differently, use different techniques and materials and appeal to different species of fish, but they...
A couple of deep swimmers who get down fast, and stay down until they've found what they're looking for: trout.
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 nifty little Euro/competition style nymph and a Balanced Bugger. These are essentially variations on well-known patterns, but you'd do well to add them to your fly box!
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.
A juvenile fish imitation called the Fingerling and a soft hackle spin on John Barr's masterpiece Copper John, called the Softer John.
Not just dry flies, but big dry flies! A salmonfly and a Stimulator!
A versatile aresenal with a bunny streamer, a small softy and a jig!
March Madness is not just a basketball tournament. It's also a great time for some nymph fishing.
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.
