FAB - Foam Arse Blob

FAB - Foam Arse Blob

So Easy a Caveman Can Tie It Alright, I'll start off by claiming the obvious...  This fly is NOT a difficult fly to tie, but we thought it was worth showing due to the uniqueness of the "jelly fritz" that is used to tie it.  It's really no mystery in the UK, but here in the USA, it seems that we have grown content to kick and twitch an olive krystal bugger while passing directly over fish, and giving the occasional twitch.  This "Jolling" (trolling with slight jerks) is going to catch you some fish for sure, but if you really want to get technical about fishing stillwaters, it's highly recommended to research loch style fishing and some of the patterns and methods used in the UK and competitions worldwide.  This post really isn't to break down all of the different methods you can use to present a buoyant fly, but I'll share my favorite.  Type 5 full sink line -> 5 feet fo 3x to a weighted leech -> 5 feet of 3x to a smaller chironomi

Euro Nymphing on the Provo River

Euro Nymphing on the Provo River

Winter Fly Fishing Brown trout caught on a Perdigon fly pattern We headed up to the river and forged some snow to catch some fish. Despite some chilly weather and a strong midge hatch, the fish were happy to chow down on #16 and #14 Euro style jig nymphs. If you need to get started on Euro nymphing, look for these two killer Euro nymphing videos from Lance, Devin and Gilbert. They go through all you need to know. And the flies we used....

Biot Soft Hackle

Biot Soft Hackle

Simple Still Works As much as I love to push the boundaries of fly tying, there is also a part of me that loves to tie really simple classic flies.  Soft hackles are usually very simple, sparse, and super effective.  This fly really doesn't need much introduction so I'll keep it brief, but as far as fishing applications, you should swing it, drop it off of a dry fly, nymph it, fish it in lakes, etc. etc...

Catch More Fish During The Winter Winter time can be a great time to fire up the space heater in the tying dungeon and crank out flies meant for warmer times, but it's also a great time to hit your local river to target feeding fish!  If the water is warm enough not to be completely iced over, the fish are still there and they eat all winter in order to keep calories flowing.  Nymphing through slow runs is a great way to catch lethargic fish, but you will also have plenty of opportunity to cast dry flies to rising fish.  Below we have listed some of the flies that we always have in our fly boxes for a day of winter fishing. For more information on winter fishing tactics, check out this clinic we did in the shop HERE. Bunny Midge The Bunny Midge is one of our favorites because you can tie them from size 18-30 proportionately.  More importantly, the fish really love to eat these things on some of the picky tailwaters we fish.

Size 30 Bunny Midge

Size 30 Bunny Midge

Catching Trout with No-See-Ums I will promise you one thing with this fly...  That promise is that if you tie these and put them in a box, there will be someone who says "What the #$%#$ do you catch with those?!?!"  Calmly let them know that they are a great tool for catching wary rising trout in the winter and spring.  This is the third iteration of the bunny midge, and it's actually really similar to the last one that we released ( previous versions ), but I wanted to demonstrate that it could be done with a size 30 hook. This hook has an over sized eye, it's barbless (which makes it easier to hook fish), and it comes only in size 26-30 which tells us that they designed it specifically for small midges.  In my experience, it hooks up extremely well, and is just heavy enough to land decent sized trout. Feel free to tie these in multiple colors too!  I like olive and black for the body color, and any white or gray color for the wing. Material List
