Thunder Creek flies are a bit tricky to learn to tie, but once you get it, it’s easy and an amazing way to imitate minnows. Here is the January offering from Fish Tales Fly Shop out of Calgary Alberta. I’ve met Aaron on a number of occasions and he has shared some great patterns that have been really effective.
“At the Denver fly fishing retailers show in 2007 I looked at a product on a table, picked it up and immediately asked “What is this?” and “How do we get it?” The product was DNA Holo fusion. As a result of that find I now have filled a void in my fly tying material arsenal. I discovered something that was supple enough to move well in bait fish patterns, yet rigid enough to hold its shape when tied. It’s also available in a good variety of colors.”
