5 Habits of Highly Effective Brook Trout Anglers

5 Habits of Highly Effective Brook Trout Anglers

Be a Brookie Boss Hefty Brook Trout taken from a remote lake When it comes to emails and questions we get about our patterns, posts and fish we chase, we get a lot of interest generated by our obsession with Brook Trout. So with that in mind, I figured it was time to throw out some of the things you can pay attention to in order to get into these awesome fish. There are, of course, a lot of other factors, but these are some good starting points. 1. Research . Because most people are fairly respectful of the discretion that surrounds some of the better Brookie waters, you can't expect to just start asking around and get the skinny on these types of  lakes and streams. If you expect to get some information, you'll need to start digging. I usually start with stocking reports and Google Earth -- both publicly available and neither of them are moochy "Hey guys, give me some info on secret locations" questions posed on the interwebs. Books, some internet sites or ev

Junk Yard Soft Hackle

Junk Yard Soft Hackle

Turn your tying waste into fishy goodness Junk Yard Soft Hackle - From trash to treasure This is another one of those videos that isn't necessarily to show you a new pattern, but it's to show you a few different techniques.  I have dabbled with throwing a bunch of stuff in dubbing loops for years, but since I got my new Stonfo tools it has kind of gone into overdrive...  In this pattern I specifically use the "under-fluff" part of a coq de leon hen saddle feather to create a functional soft hackle.  If you like a really sparse soft hackle you can use fewer turns, and if you like a full hackle (like the one I was shooting for) you can load it up.  I also used a dubbing loop technique for the body that isn't anything new, but it helps really compact buggy materials into a tight loop. ~ Cheech Recipe: Hook: Allen D202 #10 BUY Thread: UTC 70 - fl. orange BUY Body: SLF dubbing - RFSN thorax BUY Thorax: SLF dubbing - RFSN abdomen BUY Hackle: Fluff wa

Carp Dough Boy

Carp Dough Boy

Move over dough balls Carp Dough Boy Here is a little carp pattern that we have been playing with recently. With some of the new carp toys out like Cohen's carp dub , and Allen carp hooks , I couldn't resist messing around with some bugs.  This fly is also very functional as a mini crawfish and can be tied in a variety of different colors to match the forage in your waters. A couple of keys for this fly: It's compact like a little edible nugget for the fish It is a low odor fly.  No superglue was harmed in the making of this film.  The glue was Loon water based stuff. It's tied on a beefy hook that will hold up to the biggest and baddest carp battles. Ice dub - it plain catches fish. Recipe: Hook: Allen MP003BL #4-#8 BUY HERE Thread: UTC 140 - fl. fire orange BUY HERE Eyes: Barbell eyes with eye - 4mm yellow BUY HERE Tail: Wooly bugger marabou - hot orange BUY HERE Legs: Magnum predator legs - grizzly barred rootbeer BUY HERE Body: Cohen

Rusty Mayfly Spinner

Rusty Mayfly Spinner

Sometimes you need to go a bit realistic Rusty Mayfly Spinner If you've ever hit a really good Mayfly spinner fall, then you can see the benefit of this pattern. Because it features these "hyper-realistic" wings, in traditional spinner orientation, it's sexy as all get out and it's been a great fly to have in the box during these awesome hatch stages. As far as this pattern goes, it features one of my favorite body materials: wrapped turkey biots (with the ribbing up). If you're a little hesitant to go with Turkey biots, we've done some homework for you and explained all you need to know about biots in general . Another addition to this type of traditional pattern is the use of some specialty wings. The wings and the wing burners are from the guys as J:Son Sweden. They're an innovative bunch of fly tyers that put out some awesome materials. The wing burners, shown here, come in a variety of sizes and types. These are specifically for mayfl
