The pattern uses a few newer products including Hareline’s new Double Pupil Lead eyes and a raimbow blend of Senyo’s Fusion Dub. This should be a good fly to throw at some bass, pike or trout on the rivers.

Crust Nymph by North 40 Fly Shop

The Crust Nymph is a slim beadhead that is tied using turkey biot for the body. To overcome the fragile nature of the biot, the North 40 crew overwrap fine copper wire on the turkey. It should add a few extra hits to the fly, and make it even more effective when it gets beat up. Keep the thorax light, using yellow on the PMD and the brown olive on the BWO versions of the fly.

Crust Nymph Fly Pattern Recipe

Hook: Nymph hook 1xl 1xs
Bead: 5/64 brass bead copper or brown
Thread: 70 Ultra Thread brown
Tail: Wood duck
Rib: small copper wire
Body:Turkey Biot – Brown
Winces: Body Stretch 1/8″ brown
Legs: CDC Tuft Gray Dun
Thorax: Ice Dub UV Light Yellow

SOH Streamer tied by Matt Wilhelm

This meaty pattern from Montana angler Matt Wilhelm is sure to draw some specimen trout into the open from the safety of the undercut. Matt uses the fly both in the spring after the spawn and in the fall. Earlier in the week, I was treated to a spectacular video of Alaskan trout fishing by OPST and would love to have a chance to chuck this fly to some of the beautifully marked and speckled rainbows featured in the video. Matt explains that he doesn’t stick to a strict set of colors for the fly and will makes changes depending on conditions and water clarity. Matt also suggests adding extra weight to the shank for those who are wading while fishing the fly. I do see a bit of an issue with the eye placement on the top of the shank. The fly will keel over and ride hook up. A couple suggestions to combat this is to use a bead or cone head up front with body weight added, or tie the rabbit strip on the underside and attach it through the hook.
