    Ran across this today on YouTube. I'll be ty'n up some of these:

    Looking to ID this pattern. Not sure where it came from or even how I ended up with it. Thanks, Mark

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a good cray fish pattern?

    Not talking PhD fish here ... even the dry fly happy westlope cutts ... I often find during hopper time when the fish are taking them that as soon as I fish that slightly softer pool with less riff on top -- e.g. really good holding water -- that my hopper patterns (what were working great in...

    Recently I tied a top water sand shrimp pattern and this week I used it for the first time. I was thrilled how well sea-run cutthroat liked the pattern. It had a hookup ratio of about 30 % if a fish took a swip at it. I have a couple of ideas to make this pattern even better with hopefully a...

    I created a how to video for a really hot new pattern I started tying last fall. Hope it helps a few of ya!

    After some 1800 and fresh squeezed lime juice over the rocks this is a sculpin pattern I have begun experimenting with. Given it's wide deer body head with bruiser blend dubbing over the top it should certainly push some water. I was reminded how much fish prey on sculpin this summer when my gf...

    Came across this tonight while looking for pile worm ideas. Not the best English and definitely a bit of a complicated tie but I thought the overall method was pretty unique and the finished product looks great and I bet it really swims nicely.

    So I picked this fly for a first classic salmon fly to learn on. Its taken a few tries, and I`m getting closer at any rate. Still not where I want it, and still learning how to do some of the elements. Couldnt get the teal to marry with the barred shoulder. Mark M., I need to learn how to get...

    2017 is a Fraser River and south coast pink year and I've been asked to tie 3 or 4 different beadhead patterns for pinks on jig hooks. Does anyone have any patterns they have used successfully that would help me to fill this request? Muchly appreciating. I'll post what I have come up with once I...

    First off...this is not a bead thread. If your favorite egg pattern is a bead, great. But don't debate it. So...What is your favorite egg pattern for winter steelhead. For me, I'm not a fan of the traditional glo bug. I like those nuke eggs or a homemade loose yarnball with a small bead tied in...

    Are there any tying classes in the Everett,wa area.

    I m always trying to convert terminal rigs to flies and highly popular nightmare jig seems like a good candidate. Anyone thought about this at all if so what are some ideas if you look at nightmares they remind me of either a Willy worm or bugger. Would this idea work especially tuning a float rig.

    On Thurs. I had excellent top water action with an improved Delia's squid pattern. It was the first time which I have used a new type of foam head for the pattern. It is made out of a very slick/smooth outer matterial and has double rounded bottom(below photo) which allows the pattern to slide...

    I've been intrigued over the years with anglers who carry only a few patterns in their fly boxes/wallets, compared to the myriad of flies I typically carry. I'm gonna give this article some serious thought: http://www.flyfisherman.com/fly-tying/yvon-chouinard-lessons-from-a-simple-fly/

  17. Good still water for small ponds

    This from my experience works good on small ponds. I havent been to a lake with it but I would guess that it would work fairly good.
