Egan's Chironomid Frenchie: aka the Silver Lancer

Egan's Chironomid Frenchie: aka the Silver Lancer

Slayer Chironomid Pattern Chironomid Frenchie Preface (by CF): So we've been fishing this Frenchie variation pattern almost religiously for the past couple of chironomid seasons on our local stillwaters. In two words:  It slays . Now we wouldn't expect less from the fishy mind of Lance Egan, but this pattern almost borders on creepily effective. Due to the need for getting this submitted to Umpqua for an upcoming new catalog release, we couldn't let the cat out of the bag until now, but we've seen this pattern get a LOT of usage amongst a few fellow anglers and it's pretty much the same response in terms of how well it fishes. By now you know me as a pretty fanatical chironomid guy. And not to say I don't fish my other patterns, but let's say I've got a few rows in my chironomid box that is 100% Silver Lancers. Side note: Cheech came up with that codename for it and we actually call it that. Chironomid Frenchie is what you'll see it named

Mil-Spec Parachute PMD

Mil-Spec Parachute PMD

Techie looks, with a Simple Technique It's been a few years since I really focused on fishing PMD hatches, but as many of you know, it only takes one good hatch to start losing sleep in anticipating these pale yellow sailboats in the summer time.  Curtis and I started floating the Provo river quite a bit last year, and most of our focus was on big terrestrials and crippled caddisflies.  There seemed to be one section of the river that had slower water, picky fish, and plentiful PMDs, but it was always hard to take off a big foam fly to something that was a bit more technical.  We started pulling over, lengthening our leaders, and fishing PMD patterns, and it usually added 5 or 6 more fish to our total for the day.  PMD's are now varsity starters in our float boxes.  Because I had been playing with the Mil-Spec (marker barred) body style with lots of baetis patterns, I decided that it was time to do the same thing with PMD patterns.  Needless to say, it was a great su

The Humongous: A Bugger of Buggers

The Humongous: A Bugger of Buggers

Killer Bugger Variation Humongous Fly We've got another tutorial from Lance today and it's one of his favorite stillwater competition fly patterns. The "Humongous" is popular among a growing number of anglers world-wide but retains a lot stronger following in the U.K., where this bugger variation originated. So what gives here? It's basically a wooly bugger right? Well, yes and no. From my experience, the longer tail and hackle fibers throw a pretty big wrinkle into the original bugger style and are part of what makes this so effective. Plus, it's got some nice flash on the body. Lance explains much better in the video than I can right here. So give him a listen and tie some of these up. They are definitely a staple in my stillwater boxes now...
