  1. A few months ago I tied up a fly called the Brahma Bugger, which I did not invent but loved fishing and tying the fly very much! The fly was originally tied by the tightlines youtube channel, and I re-named the fly "soft hackle bugger" because I did not use a brahma pelt, but instead used a soft hackle pelt from whiting. That video did really well, and that fly has been an amazing fish catcher for me. So I set out to improve on the fly, and make it better for a wider range of fish species. I wanted to articulate the fly, and give it even more movement in the water. So I present you with the articulated brahma bugger, which catches more fish than I could imagine. In fact, it far out fished any other fly I had with me on my last trip. I could not keep the fish off of it. And it seemed to attract some really large trout as well! This articulated fly is really my favorite streamer now, and I don't think I will be fishing anywhere without at least a few in my box. As always I am listing all the materials I used on this fly. Hook: Firehole sticks #811 in size 6 Shank: Small sized Fish Joint Thread: Veevus 6/0 in Olive Feathers: Whiting Coq de Leon soft hackle with chickabou pelt died Chartreuse Wire: Small Intruder wire in black Cement: Brush on Zap a Gap Head cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV resin
  2. These can be tied up very quickly, which is rare to find effective streamer patterns that you can tie so quickly. I can fill up a box in a few hours, and the beauty is that its fairly simple, so it lends to a wide range of color combos as well. Especially since we are using rabbit strips and laser dubbing, both of which have quite a few colors available. Using a cap like this, you really don't have to worry too much about neat heads. In fact, occasionally I mess up my whip finish or how I layer the fly. And the head comes out looking terrible. But thats ok when using these caps, because all your mess-ups at the head are covered by this cap. This fly also is very durable for that reason, a fish will not be able to touch your whip finish with their teeth because that cap is in the way. The cap is fairly heavy though, but they do make plastic weightless caps as well. So if you want a non-weighted streamer you could use them as well. But I do like the jigging motion this steel head gives. And its not overly heavy on these smaller flies, and I was able to cast with a 4wt rod even. As always I am listing all the materials in the description section of this video Hook: Fireholesticks #811 in size 6 - Cap: Fish-Skull Baitfish Heads, small Thread: Olive Veevus Powerthread 140 Tail: Olive Rabbit Zonker Strip Flash Dubbing: Pearl Ice Dub Head Stacking Dubbing: White and Olive, Senyo's Laser Dub Cap Adhesive: Super Glue Gel Eye Resin: Solarez Bone Dry
  3. This is a popular fly! In the last few weeks, I have been asked to tie this in different color patterns. First I tied in a baby brown trout coloration, and then someone asked me to tie it in a rainbow trout color. Now, someone recently asked me to tie this in a perch color. So here it is! This subscriber of mine said he fishes a lake called Navajo Lake, and I have fished it a few times before. There are no baitfish other than perch and bluegill in that lake. So it makes sense that he would want this coloration of a fly. Its a good little fly, and very effective! Check out the underwater movement! And this has been a very effective fly in many of the colorations I have tied it in. So I have no doubt it will work wonders in this color pattern as well. As always, here is a list of the materials I used on this fly. You are welcome to try other materials, and you do not have to stick to these, however I am listing them to help you know what I specifically used. Hook: Gamakatsu B10S in size 2 Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in hot orange Weight: Large red painted lead dumbbell eyes Body: Ice Dub in pearl and orange Tail: Barred yellow magnum rabbit strip Head: Senyo's laser dub in white and olive Head Cement: Solarez Bone Dry UV Resin
  4. Wooly Buggers are one of the most popular and effective streamer flies ever created. Very versatile, and relatively easy to tie. I created this articulated version to be able to fish larger fish. A good baitfish imitation. They work for just about every fish species. From bass, to trout, to even saltwater fish species. All have been caught on a wooly bugger. Hooks: Gamakatsu B10S in sizes 2 and 6 Weight: .025 lead wire Head: 4mm Black Cone Head Tails: White Bugger Marabou Flash: Silver Krystal Flash Wire: Small Ultra Wire - Silver Body Wrap: White Bugger Chenille Hackle: Grizzly Saddle Hackle.
  5. This fly really works well for bass and large trout on rivers. The way this is tied, insures the hook point will stay upright no mater what. This helps you fish the bottom and even heavy cover without any issues. You can bump it over rocks and branches, and it will just swim right over them. Also, the tubing material looks a lot like a minnow belly, so it works out really well. A very lifelike imitation. Hook: Gamakatsu B10S in size 2 Flash: Gold Krystal Flash Body: Pearl 3/8" Crinoline Tubing Wing: Olive Magnum Rabbit Zonker Eye: Living Eyes 7.0MM Adhesive: Fletch Tite Filler Resin: Solarez "Thin Hard" Formula Finishing Resin: Solarez "Bone Dry" Formula
  6. This fly really is awesome! Kyle was fishing this fly last time we went out fishing for smallmouth, and he got quite a few on it. Also, while I was snagging up a few times, he didnt snag once, due to the hook point turned upward. This is a great freshwater streamer, and will catch a wide variety of sportfish. Also, this hook is super sharp! And it seems very strong. I tried bending it and it didnt seem to want to bend too much. I think this is going to be one of my new favorite streamer hooks. I barely touched it, and it ripped me open so quick. But I barely felt it, because the hook was so sharp. Hook: Gamakatsu B10S, Size 2 Lead Dumbbell Eyes: Sparkle Dubbing - Starburst dubbing, holographic silver Tail: Magnum Rabbit Zonker Dubbing: Homemade laser dub, watch the video here - https://youtu.be/uTytvz-9FAc Or just buy laser dub... UV Resin: Solarez "Flex Formula"
  7. As the last two Fat Head Squishy Streamers moved well in the water, this one will also. They are great for doing a sort of walk the dog action, and a semi suspending nature. These are awesome flies for many species, especially bass.
  8. Wooly buggers are probably one of the most popular and versatile flies anywhere you fish. From California to Colorado to New York, and not just USA, but other countries as well. Anywhere you can fly fish, you can use a wooly bugger. They work for both fresh and even saltwater, however they tend to be most commonly found as freshwater streamers. These flies are a bit more flashy then the chenille tied buggers, and therefor are better suited in my opinion for more aggressive fish, or even stained water conditions. Hook: Daiichi 1750 - size 8 Tail: Marabou - Brown Flash: Krystal Flash - Gold Dubbing: Starburst Dubbing Hackle: Rooster Cape - Brown Thread: Ultra thread 70 - Dark brown
  9. I shot a turkey this season, and I plucked all the feathers and used them for this fly. Its an awesome little streamer with lots of movement. Great for trout on a stream or river. I used both the tail feathers and two types of marabou from this turkey. The turkey tasted great, and was a hit on Thanksgiving morning. Hook: Any streamer hook - Im using size 8 Tail and top wing: Turkey marabou, the larger dark feathers Under wing: Turkey Marabou, the smaller, lighter feathers Body wrap: Turkey tail feather fibers Flash: Krystal Flash
  10. Enrico Puglisi is one of the most well known tiers in all of saltwater fly fishing. He invented the style of tying now known as EP, and also started the original line of synthetic fibers known as EP fiber. His "minnow" line of flies are popular because they have good movement in the water, and also are small, so a wide verity of fish will hit the bait. They also have lots of flash, so they are easy to be seen, and attract fish from a distance. The problem is that his fibers are very expensive, and his flies are as well. As you can probably tell from watching my channel, I tend to be a bit thrifty when it comes to fly tying materials. I am always looking on Ebay for good deals, or tend to go with less expensive alternatives to fly tying materials. I found that "water silk" from The Fly Tiers Dungeon works really well for this small EP style minnow fly. In fact I like the fiber even better. This fly will work also in freshwater and can be tied in a number of color patterns. For the head dressing, I used another material also by Fly Tyers Dungeon called "starburst dubbing" which works much like EP's Flash material he uses. Try this out, I think you will love tying and fishing this fly for a number of inshore saltwater species, and also freshwater species like bass and pike. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - size 2 Tail Flash: Cristal Flash - Bronze Fiber: Water Silk - White and Pheasant Tail Head Flash: Starburst Dubbing - Metallic Copper Eyes: 3D eyes - 4mm, Gold Eye adhesive: Fletch Tite Head Cement: Solarez UV Resin - Bone Dry Thread: Danville's Monofiliment Thread - Fine
  11. This has enough weight to use with a conventional or spinning rod and I use this fly to catch flounder in the Texas gulf with my conventional gear. It is also a great fly to use with heavier fly rods (8wt and up) just because of the excess weight. If you lighten up the weight, you could use it with a lighter rod. This will imitate a small baitfish, and moves incredibly in the water. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - Size 1/0 Thread: Danville 210 waxed - Red Weight: Dumbbell Eyes - 6MM Flash: Krystal Flash - Silver Tail: Rabbit Zonker - White Body: White Bull Frog Dubbing mixed with pearl Starburst Dubbing Hook Wrap: Cactus Chenille - Pearl Eye Adhesive: Krazy Glue FInishing Resin: Solarez UV curing resin - Bone Dry formula
  12. Watch till the end for the underwater footage... This fly is a lightweight version of a zonker fly, that also is similar to a matuka fly. I dub in the fibers on the front of the fly instead of twisting on the skin of the zonker to keep the weight down and easier to cast with lighter fly rods. I use mink zonker instead of rabbit to keep the fly smaller as well. This can be tied in many colors. White, black, olive, brown, and cream are some of the most popular streamer colors. Hook: Umpqua U103 - size 12 Thread: Ultra thread - 70 denier - color olive Tail: Mink zonker - color olive Under body: Mink zonker hair and gold small wire Body: Mink zonker dubbing brush Check out the fly at the video below, or go to my website for more information at the link below the video. Mink Matuka Streamer Fly
  13. This is a great fly for saltwater applications, but also can be used for larger freshwater fish like bass, salmon, or pike. While they aren't the most easy to tie, they aren't difficult either, and they really do catch fish. They move so nicely in the water. This is a variation of the original that was tied by lefty kreh. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 hook size 1/0, but any long shank saltwater hook will work. Tail: White saddle hackle Thread: Danville 210 waxed in blue Body: Pearl braid, or silver tinsel Wings: White and blue buck tail Gill: Red calf tail, or red crystal flash eyes: Stick on eyes, preferably flat, but I used 3D eyes which work as well. Epoxy: Solarez "Bone dry" UV curing resin.
  14. The Clouser minnow was originally created back in the mid 80's by Bob Clouser, a legendary fly tier, instructor and fisherman. Soon after the flies creation, fly fisherman around the world started realizing the flies versatility and potential to catch just about any species of fish that eat bait fish. It has the ability to catch many saltwater fish species, as well as freshwater species. I take this fly to every saltwater outing I go on, and also to every lake fly trip for bass, trout, and even pike. If tied on a small hook, you can even crappie fish with it. The fly is rather easy to tie, and can be quite durable, which means you can catch more fish without the fly shredding. You can use other materials than just buck tail, however buck tail is the original way it was tied. Synthetic fibers however can be very effective. I even know someone who ties this with craft fur, and it moves incredibly in the water. Hook: Mustad 3407 size 6-3/0 (I am using 1/0 for the video). You could also use any strong and long shank hook. I commonly use a Gamakatsu SS15 as well. Weight/Eye: Dumbbell Eyes in any size you want. The larger the eye, the faster it sinks, and the smaller the eye, the slower it will sink. I am using a 7/32" size (or 5.5MM), which is rather large. I like mine to sink fast. Body: Bucktail in chartreuse and white. Thread: Danville 210 waxed. Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" uv curing epoxy.
