    Innovative Fly Tying with Carly Hall - "The Gobstopper"

    Innovative Fly Tying with Carly Hall - "The Gobstopper"

    For such a large fly, "The Gobstopper" hopper lands quietly and does little to spook fish. At the same time however, it can stir up a lot of noise when stripped across the water. On hot summer afternoons when fish are down and slow to act, try floating "The Gobstopper" under an overhanging branch or near a brushy shoreline. Sometimes a Gobstopper can entice a strike when nothing else seems to be working. Aside from its intended use as a terrestrial fly, "The Gobstopper" is very visible on the water and works great as an indicator for nymphing.

    Supporting wild steelhead, gravel to gravel. really impressed. I just got the dang video to work on my mac. Im floored, she is gonna be a stud when she grows up, I can't wait till she starts outfishing all the men on the river, by the looks of it, that time is not far away. Great stuff.

    Beautiful! By far the best fly tying video I have ever seen on the internet. I like Carley's instruction even better than Clousers. How about some more?
