The Float & Fly technique has been gaining popularity for one simple reason: it works! Watch as Matt ties his take on an introductory baitfish pattern, perfect for targeting trout and bass in lakes.
Maddies Midge. So simple a 7 year old could tie (or make it up), but a super fishy pattern for filling your box.
This is billed as a fly for steelhead, but trout of all shapes will love this crawdad/leach hybrid.
A juicy, gelatinous, quick sinking jig, it's a box guide fly that can be dead drifted, tight line, or swung before, during, or even after an October Caddis hatch.
