Yellow Fox Trout Streamer

Another video from Charlie at Tight Lines. This is an interesting streamer and I think tying this up in the yellow, olives and even rusty orange would be something to check out. If you have some jungle cock handy, adding some jungle cock eyes would really put this fly on fish.

Thread: Yellow 6/0
Head: Black Glass Bead
Tail: Yellow Marabou
Body: Golf Diamond Braid
Wing: Yellow Marabou
Overwing: Red Squirrel
Thorax: Yellow Light Bright Dubbing



CDC Bubble Caddis Adult – Davie McPhail

More from one of my favorite tyers of late. Here is a concept brought to the mainstream by Gary Lafontaine years ago. I love working with CDC and tying caddis dries, so this is a perfect pattern for my dry fly box. I’ve bee tying and fishing quite a few CDC and elks lately with great success, but this is something I’m eager to try out.



Hot Wired Royalty

I found this sweet pattern via the Fly Fishing The Ozarks Blog. The Hot Wired Prince is a hybrid of the classic Prince nymph and the Copper John. This looks like a great fast sinking nymph, and when coupled with a tungsten bead, it’s going sink like a stone.
