Skate Ratz – Skimmin the surface.

Here is something for you Bass, Salmon, Steelhead, Pike and Gar hunters to give a shot. I think the trophy brookies would be interested in a closer look as well. This is a slick looking pattern tied up by Andy Burk. As always, there is some great production in the video and some easy follow instruction.

Spawning Purple Spey Fly

Here is a fly I found on Fly Fishing Forum. It’s a great winter steelhead fly. I’ve tied up a few to try out next week during a forecast melt. The fly was created by John Shewey for just such an occasion. Take a look at the beginning of the tutorial and head the advice given on marabou selection.
