Callibaetis Soft Hackle

Callibaetis Soft Hackle

Chimera's Kryptonite Callibaetis Soft Hackle There is truly something special about fishing high elevation lakes that take a bit more effort to reach.  These lakes are typically off the beaten path just enough to keep a lot of the other anglers away, and most of the time there are maybe only a handful of people around.  Low fishing pressure mixed with a healthy population of fish usually means that the fishing is fast, furious, and simple.  I wish it were that easy, but at some of our favorite spots the fish have really become snobs about what they will and will not put into their mouths.  I'm constantly searching for a new wonder bug most of the time when we go fish these places, and then I'll look over at friggin' Curtis and he's got yet another fish on guess what...  Yeah.  The stupid Chimera.  I say it's stupid because it's usually the culprit for me being out-fished, and it's not because I don't have them in my box... It's also not b

Fall Streamer Season

Fall Streamer Season

Throw the meat Slider Eater It's been a while...  I know...  Right now there are some pretty exciting things going on with Fly Fish Food because we are putting the finishing touches on our retail shop in Orem, UT.  It seems like every waking hour is spent getting everything set up in the shop, but it will all be worth it in the long run!  Anyway, as we sit hanging the millionth bag of dubbing on the wall, we dream of tying flies and fishing big streamers like we used to in the fall.  Really it's not that bad, and I soaked a few streamers a few weeks ago.   As we rolled up to the brand new spot that we had never fished, I was debating on whether to take a streamer rod, a Czech nymph rod, or both.  It seems like every time I'm considering this it turns into a no-brainer and I just grab the streamer stick.  Adam and Curtis grabbed nymph sticks and up the trail we went.  As I decided which fly to tie on, It's always a hard decision on a new water that I have ne

Aero Baetis v 2.0

Aero Baetis v 2.0

A Solid Mayfly Nymph Since I first featured and did a tutorial on the original Aero Baetis here  almost three years ago (crazy how time flies) and true to form on most any pattern I work with, I've come to tweak a few aspects of the fly that I feel make it an even better performer. Update: We now have these in stock on the store. Buy them here. The first major change was the hook. I've become less a fan of the 200R style hooks with the small gap and long bend like that. I don't think the shape and small gap give me much more than a stronger, larger gaped hook. Granted, they give you an awesome natural-looking shape to a finished fly and as I've heard some people mention, the smaller tapered gap might serve to obfuscate the overall hook shape. But given that any fish taking a fly will have to ignore the ginormous hook appendage coming out of the insect's butt, I find myself tying more in wider gaped hooks and not worrying about that little aspect of it.
