Squirracell - Duracell Variation

Squirracell - Duracell Variation

Spark Up Your Nymph Game It's no secret that the Duracell nymph is one of the most effective patterns in our arsenal.  We have been fishing this pattern since we contracted with Fulling Mill a few years back, and it has been a big part of our nymph boxes.  I will say this...  The Duracell is a a great design that really needs no improvements at all, but since I started playing with really sparse collars of squirrel I had to see how it would look on a Duracell nymph.  The other thing that I really like about the squirrel collar is that you don't have to hunt for that perfect piece of CDC to either palmer it, or use the magic tool with it.  You can also use this collar technique with a wide range of other fly patterns.  I also decided to use Coq de Leon dyed red for the tail on this fly for no reason other than the fact that it looked really cool (And maybe that our top selling nymph pattern in the shop is a Red Dart.) It's also a great time to introduce the Whiting

I love me some jig hooks. They have quickly become my go-to hook on any nymph pattern (and much more). When I'm showing off jig hooks to customers at the shop many people, in tailwater Utah, have a difficult time with the smallest options being a #16 in many models. While I'm of the opinion you don't really need to go smaller than that I've become a big fan of the Dohiku jig hooks in sizes 18 and 20. These hooks are the perfect platform for my Funky Flex pattern that is a super quick sinking nymph pattern suggesting a baetis nymph.  I've had a ton of luck on this pattern fishing European style methods as well as just a dropper below my favorite hopper patterns. I think you should tie some up and try them out! They are one of my confidence patterns and don't forget to try the purple version 😉 If you don't tie you can snag some on my website featherflinger.com -Brandon aka Big B aka Feather Flinger Material List Add to Cart   View in store

Iris Caddis Variation

Iris Caddis Variation

Fish the Film! Many years ago when I decided to up my game from just staring at indicators all day, I was intrigued by the caddis hatch and the many differences that it brings from the lob and watch bobber techniques that I was used to.  I began to tie and research patterns to be able to target the hyper aggressive fish I'd see right at dusk on my local river, and one pattern seemed to come up more than others, and it was the Iris Caddis.  Developed by Blue Ribbon Flies, the original relies on z-lon fibers for the tail and wing, and a synthetic/natural blend for the body and thorax. Due to my recent addiction to squirrel for tying, I started to tie the iris caddis with dubbed squirrel for the body, and a squirrel hackle for the thorax.  Needless to say, this fly is very effective, and I found that in faster water I will fish it behind a more visible pattern like the Palomino Caddis.   Happy Tying! ~Cheech Material List Add to Cart   View in store
