  1. This fly worked for me out in Corpus, I caught about 50% of my speckled trout on it, and it was rather easy to tie, and also cast. In fact, it casted so well compared to some other flies that I exclusively used this fly on my 3rd day fishing. This is rather easy to tie, and hard to mess up. The Fish Masks really make tying this easy, just get your materials on the hook, then slip over the mask and whala! You have a finished fly! Really is a great fly to use and tie. Here is a list of materials I used on the fly. Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 in size 1 Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in Brown Weight: .015 Lead Wire Flash: Pearl Flashabou Body: Congo Hair in Polar Bear, Caddis Tan, and Dark Brown UV Resin: Solarez "Bone Dry" Cap: Fish Skull Fish Mask size #6 Cap Adhesive: Fletch Tite Cap Eyes: 5MM 3D eyes
  2. Many people have already asked me to tie a fly with my beard hair, so here it is! I cut some hair from my beard, then tied a clouser minnow with it. I even went out and tested it on the water and I caught a few smallmouth bass with it! Pretty funny actually, catching fish with my beard. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - Size 2 Weight: Brass Dumbbell Eyes - 5MM Eye Adhesive - Super Glue Thread: Ultra thread 140 - Brown Fiber: My Beard! UV Resin: Solarez "Bone Dry"
  3. This material is awesome to work with. Its a new blend of material made form Fly Tiers Dungeon called "Arctic Wind" and I love it. Lots of flash, and very shiny. Also the fibers are long enough for decent sized streamers. I am tying a fat head minnow pattern today. They are small brownish, white bellied, bait fish with a distinct dark lateral line. They are one of the most popular live baits in conventional fishing, and many freshwater fish eat them. This fly is about 2" long and has a very sharp jigging action. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - size 2 Weight: "Rivers Wild" Cone head cap and .035 non-lead heavy wire Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed - brown Body materials: FTD Arctic Wind - hot white, tan, brown Lateral Line: Holographic flashabou - black Adhesive: Fletch Tite Epoxy: Solarez UV Resin - Bone Dry
  4. 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
  5. So, as most of you know, I am always looking to improve the experience you guys and other viewers get watching my videos. I realized that I have so many video's on youtube now that they would be hard to navigate through. I spend the entire week trying to setup this new site with my video's that are laid out with more structure and categories. There are pages for salt/fresh water, then pages for streamers, nymphs, dry flies, crabs, shrimp exc... I hope you guys like it. Tell me whatcha think. I think some of you have already seen it. But let me know what you think I need, or any improvements you would like to my site to keep ya coming back looking at my video's more often. http://www.mcflyangler.com
  6. I decided to start writing articles on my site, instead of just video's. Check out this article on my website. Keep in mind, this is a very simple tutorial. I know most of you probably already know this trick. But incase you don't, then hopefully this will help. http://www.mcflyangler.com/vise-hook-keeper
  7. Hey, I am going to start re-doing some of my old videos where I talk at the camera and make them better like my newer videos. I want some suggestions to see what you all want to see. I don't have the ability to re-do all of them in a timely manner, so I thought I would ask you guys which you want to see next. Please cast your vote on here... 1: Salty Krystal Flash Shrimp 2: Mc Bunker http://youtu.be/DRksd7ItFK 3: Merkin Crab 4: Seaducer 5: Lefty's Deciever 6: Synthetic Glass Minnow 7: Mc Mullet Finger Mullet 8: Standing Shrimp 9: Crazy Charlie 10: Monster Bugger
  8. This pattern is one I tie to mimic small fry. Occasionally fish will be feeding exclusively on these small fish. When they do that, you need to get a good fry imitation out there. I tied this to be very realistic and mimic the small fry perfectly. It can be tied in a number of colors, and is relatively simple to tie. Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 size 1/0 Thread: Danville ultra fine monofiliment Body wrap: Saltwater flashabou, and pink crystal chenille Fiber: Ice Dubbing Flash: Krystal Flash Eyes: 3/32" silver eyes Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" and "bone dry" formula Music: Sunny, funnysong - Bensound.com
  9. The cone head marabou deceiver is a lot like my other video on the square tail marabou deceiver, however this has a weighted cone head to make it sink and have a jigging action. The marabou makes it have lots of great action, and the buck tail protects the softer marabou from getting ripped apart. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 2 Weight: 5/32" cone head Thread: Danville 210 waxed Tail: Marabou and krystal flash Wings: Bucktail Flash: Flashabou Eyes: 3D eyes size 5/32" Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" and "bone dry" formula Music: Sunny, funnysong, happiness - Bensound.com Preparing Bucktail: https://youtu.be/glU67iVvkc0
  10. The Schminnow was originally created by Norm Zeigler to fish snook on the small islands off of Florida. This fly resembles a large wooly bugger, but was originally tied with estaz. I myself have made some small edits to the fly and I call it the "super schminnow" its more flashy, has even more movement in the water, and has a weighted head for some jigging action. One of the reasons this fly works so great is that it can resemble a shrimp, or a baitfish. So its great for multiple fishing situations. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 1/0 Thread: Danville 210 waxed in white Tail: White select craft fur Under Body: EZ Body over dubbing Over Body: Ice dubbing (pearl) Music: Sunny & Funnysong - Bensound.com Dumbbell Eye Tips: https://youtu.be/1vAds9-bnhA
  11. 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.

  12. Hey guys, this is a super quick video on tying in dumbbell eyes. I plan on doing a few of these quick tips type of video's. They will be under 2 minutes (this one is only 1 and a half minutes). Let me know what you think? I know you all probably know how to tie in dumbbell eyes, but I am making my video's for the beginners as well as seasoned tiers. So I am thinking that some beginners might need help with some simple things like this. Let me know whatcha think of this series of videos. https://youtu.be/1vAds9-bnhA
