Copper Bunny Streamer by Bozeman Creative

The Copper Bunny streamer looks like a promising pattern for fishing trout rivers and pike lakes. This meaty streamer will ride hook up and the weighted eyes and body will help the fly descend to the feeding depths in short order. The pattern should be easy enough to switch up the colors to create a range of lures for different situations. White, olives, all black, and combinations should cover the bases.

Tying the Shimmer Stone Nymph with Brian Wise

This Rich Strolis pattern is tied by Fly Fishing The Ozarks’ Brian Wise. It’s a nice break to see Brian finally tying a fly under 6 inches for a change. Speaking of changes, the channel has a slick new intro for the videos and seems to have adopted a looped soundtrack in favor of the dubstep we’ve seen in the past. This is the first nymph in the series, and we are hoping to see more patterns from Brian again after a bit of a hiatus. This is a great pattern, just sub in darker materials if you need dark stones rather than the golden version presented here.

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.
