Brasshawk Carp Fly by Piscator Flies

The Brasshawk carp fly pattern was designed by Texas tyer and guide Danny Scarborough. This fly is great for targeting carp in the shallows, 1-4 ft. I added a little extra weight behind the eyes with a couple strips of lead, but you could also make this fly heavier with lead or brass barbell eyes.

Egan’s GTI Caddis from Lance Egan FlyFishFood

This heavily weighted caddis fly will make a good fly pattern to use as a point or anchor fly. The caddis includes a “wingcase” which sets it apart from the usual caddis. The tail is a simple nub of peacock herl, but I love the addition and think it will help attract a few more fish. The double ribbing (standard and reverse wrapped) will really help with the durability of the fly as well. Lance has a ton of subtle tying tips included in the video, so take notes, this will help to improve your own fly tying skills.

Holographic Bloodworm

The Holographic Blood worm is a stillwater trout fly I’ve been tying for over a decade. It can be fished in lakes under a strike indicator, or on a longer leader. I like to fish the fly over muddy bottomed ponds and lakes where I expect the chironomid larva to be.
