Squatchy B Stonefly Nymph

Squatchy B Stonefly Nymph

Maximum Movement Stonefly The effectiveness of the Pat's Rubber Legs is known industry wide, so as I do with lots of already popular patterns, I make subtle (or not so subtle) tweaks to them.  This one uses one of the best long shank jig hooks I've seen in a long long time, a very interesting hackling technique, and a small bit of flashy dubbing.  Mix up the colors and happy fishing!! P.S. The Squatchy Bas%$rd is a nickname for one of my current co-workers.  He's very very Squatchy.

Soft Hackle Jig John

Soft Hackle Jig John

Another simple fly for your box This fly really needs no introduction because it is just a soft hackled copper john tied on a jig hook.  The body is super easy, and the soft "hackle" is actually just sparse squirrel.  Give them a tie and add them to your fish catchers!

Streamer Float with Dr. Timothy

Streamer Float with Dr. Timothy

When the Fish Don't Eat Dries, Throw Streamers Tim and I got out to float while Curtis and Lance explored some other small stream options.  It was as interesting night because we thought we would be fishing hoppers and caddis, but the most consistent fly was an olive streamer until it got dark.  Once it got darker the caddis really started to pop, and the corn fed caddis was the absolute ticket.  We probably caught more fish in the last 30 minutes of the trip than the rest of the trip combined!  Check out the Corn Fed Caddis , and Thread Frenchie !  They are must haves for summer fishing.

Mil Spec Perdigon

Mil Spec Perdigon

Euro Nymph or Dry Dropper One late night as I was tying for our trip to Argentina I was trying to crank out as many flies as I could, so I turned to the good ol' mil spec technique to create some quill-looking perdigones.  The fly that you see pictured here was actually one of those late night accidents because I was tying them with a gold bead, but I grabbed a copper/brown bead and it ended up on one single fly in my box.  You know how that story goes right?  Yup...  It was the best dropper pattern of the whole trip.  I had several others tied with gold beads, but there was something about this color of bead that made the fish eat it without hesitation.  We were fishing a very productive run with this fly, and I was worried that I'd lose it so I tied on a gold bead to see if I could catch fish on it...  Usually the fish aren't that picky, but in this case, the bead made all the difference because I caught exactly zero fish on the gold bead.  Once the brown bead
