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.

Hog Snare Streamer – Rich Strolis

I can think of quite a few spots I’d love to swing this BAF in some current. Rich is pretty masterful when it comes to streamer design and with the new products coming available such as the Flymen Fishing Co. Articulated Shanks, it makes his job easier and more interesting. You probably won’t be knocking out many of these over an hour, but the promise of hogs on the end of your line should help keep you motivated to tie a few of these to try out. Lots if material on the streamer, but note the finished profile in the water with a larger front profile tapering down to the third shank.
