    Tied a variant of the Mop Fly using Pink Ice Dub and a larger size hook. Used a smaller hook the first time and had some strikes but no hook ups. Closer look at the fishing fly was able to notice there was little room between the hook gap and the shaft. Built the dubbing… [read more]

  • Fly Tying This Evening… Stonefly Pattern #flytying #flyfishing

    By / November 5, 2017 / Fly Tying

    Wish we had this pattern while fishing the Blue River yesterday. First time tying a Stonefly, the goose biots are a pain. Also, had to find a substitute for the vinyl ribbing since Cabelas was out of them. Found a stretch and bend line used for craft beads. Worked fine… still have a tough time… [read more]

    By / February 15, 2017 / Article, Fly Tying

    While fishing in Frisco this past weekend, we met one of our Readers who asked about the Guadalupana fishing fly that we used while fishing the Guadalupe River several seasons ago. Has been awhile since we tied one but we do recall it was an effective fishing fly for us, working on the trout on… [read more]

  • Size 22 Griffith’s Gnats… #flytying

    By / January 31, 2017 / Fly Tying

    Decided to scale down the fishing fly size in preparation for the next round of micro fly fishing. Yesterday’s quick trip with the the Micro Fly Rod had lots of strikes but a size 16 was too much for the little fish to handle. This evening, tied a couple of Griffith’s gnats in size 22….
