Doug McKnight ties a Slingblade Spoonfly by The Weekly Fly

Doug McKnight: Slingblade Spoonfly fly tying video tutorial

Doug puts the weight on in this heave multi-purpose fly.
Livingston tier and guide Doug McKnight hails originally from Pensylvania, but now lives in Livingston, MT. Doug began tying flies at age 9 under his father’s instruction along with a few instructional books. In 2003, Umpqua Feather Merchants signed him up as a signature fly tyer, and you can buy his unique fly patterns in fly shops around the world. In 2010, Fly Fisherman Magazine published a streamer- tying article written by Doug that was very well received. He continues to write for regional and national publications. Doug McKnight, in recent years, has been working on his fine art of oil paintings, pastels and pen and pencil drawings. Doug’s art is carefully rendered and his meticulous nature lends itself towards recreating beautiful and accurate images with an emphasis on the angler’s world.

Doug works at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing in addition to his personal creative work.

Josh Stanish is a tyer from Bozeman, MT. Find out more about Josh by going to Biggie’s Bugs or to montanatroutchasers.com

Josh grew up in the mountains of Colorado and watched a world-class resort grow from the ground up. His passion for fishing got started at a young age when his father would take him camping in the flat top wilderness. When he was about 10 he found an old spin/flyfish combo rod and headed to the river. He has been completely consumed with the sport ever since. Upon graduating High School he headed north to the great state of Montana. He attended college between his days on the Madison, Yellowstone and Gallatin Rivers.

Elk River Nymph by Boots Allen

Driggs/Jackson area fly fishing guide Boots Allen ties up his Elk Liver Nymph fly pattern. I really love the finished look of this little nymph, but if you don’t have access to creating dubbing brushes, you can use a simple dubbing loop to get the job done. The result is a very mottled looking nymph with a decent amount of flash.
