Seeking Pattern Recipes/Materials for sm CO drys/nymphs

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

New to the Forum and getting back to tying now in retirement that I have the time, after many years away from the craft.

Is there a reference to the materials used on common small flys used in the Rockies (Western CO), such as midges, BWO's, PMD's, and a few popular nymphs too?

Thanks

MK19

Ed Engle, Tying and Fishing Small Flies. He's a Colorado guy, too.

I also suggest Modern Midges by Rick Takahashi and Jerry Hubka. I have both books and they are basically pattern books with the materials discussed during the tying instructions.

Thank you all! Much appreciated.

There's a similar book just out by CO Guide Landon Mayer also called Guide Fly's, not so sure what detail is it, but will try to sort through all of these that look like great choices. 

Best, MK
