Bunny Dun

More of one of my favorite materials to fish, the Snowshoe Hare (SSH) foot. This pattern is tied up by Josh Stanish, a tyer out of Montana. This Bunny Dun pattern is a nice little mayfly imitation and you can just switch up the colors to mimic other types of mayflies. Thanks to the Weekly Fly for bringing lots of great patterns week after week. There are some awesome tips in this video on how to use SSH.

CDC Puff Baetis Emerger

Did I mention I love CDC? Here is another CDC pattern, this one a blue winged olive or Baetis emerger tied up by John Collins for riseformstudio.tv. The pattern is intended to be fished deeper in the water because the BWO’s hatch on the substrate of the waters and emerge to the surface as adults. You can also fish the fly in the film if you wish, and if that is your intention, I would recommend to skip the wire rib to keep the pattern lighter.
