Just a quick video…but summer memories in January are always welcome. Went fishing with my son Reed and I got to spend a bit of time with the rod too. Enjoy the green and dream of June! Be sure to like, share and comment! Tight lines!

Tying the Flashback Damsel Nymph fly Pattern – Ep181 PF #PiscatorFlies

Hey Threadhead! Welcome back, today I’m whipping up a Flashback Damselfly nymph. This is a great pattern to fish your favorite stillwater from April into November. I like to cast these over weed beds and close to shore reeds. Use a slow retrieve and move your rod tip side to side slightly. This helps impart some natural movement to the fly.

You can tie the fly in a range of colors, olive is my goto, but light yellows, olives, brown and dun colors all work well. If you want a lighter fly, use an eye made from monofilament. If you want a heavier fly, brass eyes will work well.
