I know that we just featured a DNA Clouser last post, but this video is just too prime not to highlight. Many people in the Calgary area are familiar with Aaron Caldwell from the Fish Tales fly shop and can attest to his fly tying skills. This video really caught my eye with the great production value and tying techniques. Pause at 18 seconds in for a money shot of this fly. Wicked proportions on this Clouser and a nice efficient tie.

Another fly from the vise of Aaron Caldwell with his take on the classic Jack Gartside Leech. The fly is tied with a Waddington shank, a method not often used, with an articulated hook. There is a great tip in this video on avoiding impromptu piercings that should come in handy. I’m thinking that this one may be a great pattern for some local bass and trout. Can’t wait to try a couple.
