Loon Live – September 20, 2018
View on YouTube
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, anglers of all ages… we are proud to present to you two very special guests on Loon Live this week!
From hunting for fictional species of fish to posting videos hosted by fictional family members, these guys are the real deal. Cheech and Curtis, the geniuses behind Fly Fish Food, remind us how much fun fishing and fly tying can be. Developing a distinct and recognizable style as a tyer is tough, but these guys work with unparalleled creativity at the vise. In short: we are huge fans.

It can be tough to keep things skinny while tying midges, but Curtis shows us how to do it. You could even drop the size of your thread down to keep things even skinnier if you need it on smaller sized flies. Personally, I don’t like using a round wire on these, so I would swap the wire for a mylar tinsel. I might also put on a bit smaller bead so I don’t need to put a lot of thread behind the bead. The flash wing isn’t something I normally use on my zebra midges, but I think it is a nice touch and will start adding it from here on in.
