BROKE NECK & GLASS BEAD CADDIS

BROKE NECK & GLASS BEAD CADDIS

Description

Fly tying, like life, often comes down to the people with whom we choose to surround ourselves.  Fall into the wrong crowd and it’s nothing but Wooly Buggers and San Juan Worms for the rest of your life.  Rub shoulders with the lads at Fly Fish Food, or the 239Flies of the world, and you’ll constantly be trying something new.  This week Matt is borrowing an articulated streamer from Loon Ambassador Matt Ebbers and a nymph from legend Mike Mercer.

Be warned: Mercer’s Glass Bead Caddis isn’t exactly an easy tie… but it is awesome.  It’s absolutely worth checking out!

Be doubly warned: following Matt on Instagram (@ebbsforce1) will be great for inspiration… but could quickly become an addiction.
