Meal Ticket – Brian Wise

I’m loving the series of videos that Brian Wise from Fly Fishing the Ozarks has been creating out the past while. They have some great sound tracking and some really interesting flies from the likes of Kelly Galloup and Mike Schmidt, two innovative fly designers.

Bernie’s Bunny – Russell Miller

You’ll want to pull out a bigger rod to cast this lake trout fly. Casting a sweat sock comes to mind when I see just how big this pattern is. If you plan on tying these, I would suggest getting your rabbit strips by the pelt or half pelt, as each one looks to take a whole strip to tie. I love the head, and the UV resins of recent times have been a real bonus to the fly tyer. Although this is designed for lake trout, might I suggest throwing this to some pike, bass, gar and musky?

Egg Sucking Intruder – Black & Blue – Dimitri Gammer

This isn’t exactly a tutorial, but it does quick work of a fly which take quite a while to tie. It’s a beautiful black and blue intruder, loosely based around a Ward’s Intruder style fly. I really love the photography of the video and the included shots of the fly swimming.
