Foamulator tied by In The Riffle

I can think back to when I first started tying flies, and I remember with a lot of fondness, tying up Stimulators for use on the local lakes. The flies were nice and substantial, piling up quickly on the bench. Even on the water, the flies performed quite well, but with new materials, comes new ways to seat them onto a hook. The Foamulator is a fully loaded take on the classic Stimulator pattern used to imitate stoneflies and salmonflies. The fly includes a strip of foam into the design, a hi-vis indicator in the wing, and some action imbuing rubber legs. The densely wrapped hackle and foam should keep this fly floating high for hours. The video shows the GoldenStone version of the fly being tied, but it can be tied in a number of colors to match the naturals.

Synth Double-Wing – Walter Wiese

This is a really fully dry fly built up with a combination of synthetics and naturals. This is a modification of La Fontaine’s double wing pattern. This fly looks buoyant enough to support a nice heavy nymph or 2. The video comes from the Parks’ Fly Shop, and you can check out more videos from Parks’ on their website. look foward to seeing more videos from Walter and Parks’ Fly Shop on here in the future.

Unibobber Hopper

A nice big hopper pattern that incorporates the new Unibobber. The finish on this fly is a bit sloppy (keep those eyes clear and the dubbing smoother), but the pattern does look promising. The Unibobber makes a nice post and will keep that fly afloat for days. The bobbers come in 4 colors, white chartreuse, fire red and a sweet looking glow in the dark. I’d like to see an even smaller version come out as this one is on the large side for most of the flies I tie.
