  1. These are basically a craft fur glass minnow tied in reverse, then the fibers are pulled backwards to create a spine along the back of the fly. This raises the materials up a bit and helps keep the body fatter, while leaving the tail thin and flowing. This is a great fly for a number of fish. Tie it on a larger hook for large saltwater fish and freshwater pike, tie it on a smaller hook for trout and panfish. This size is great for freshwater bass, and many inshore saltwater species. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - size 2 Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed - chartreuse Fiber: Extra select craft fur - chartreuse and white Flash: Crystal flash - red & chartreuse Eyes: 3D 4MM eyes Eye Adhesive: Fletch Tite Head Building: Solarez UV resin - "thin" formula Head Finish: Solarez UV resin - "Bone Dry" formula
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. First Attempt at a Feather Game Changer. Any comments/advice from folks who tie this regularly?
  5. Here is my latest tutorial for anyone interested. Hope you enjoy! I'll be posted a new video every Friday on my channel. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLXgywB49gw
  6. This fly is made to mimic a sculpin. Sculpins are a common food source for large trout and other large predatory fish in lakes and rivers. These fish have fat heads and drastically tapered bodies with very small tails. They tend to stay close to the bottom, which is why this fly has lots of weight to keep it down. Also, I made this fly to sit hook point up, which will help keep it from snagging on the bottom. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - size 1/0 Thread: Danville's 210 waxed - Bright orange Fins: Partridge tail feather Body Wrap: Cactus chenille - Orange Body Material: Magnum Rabbit Zonker Strip - Orange or tan Back Material: Bull Frog Dubbin - Amber --- Mixed with Starburst Dubbing - Light orange Eyes: 3D eyes - 4mm - Gold Head Cement: Hard as hull Eye Adhesive: Fletch tite Weight: Lead wire - 0.015 size -- Cone head: 6mm
  7. https://tieflycast.wordpress.com/2016/11/15/the-box-winter-steelhead/ 3 flies that I will not venture out into the cold without. How I tie them and tips to make the common patterns more successful for winter steelhead. This flies have been tried and tested on Erie, Huron, and Ontario tributaries while having some specific influence from Lake Michigan. I have put together a collection of thoughts and ideas as well as a few favorite patterns for winter steelhead flies for the Great Lakes region. Basically this post is a collection of concepts and patterns that I have had success with over the years. I know that most of the content will not be earth shaking for most of you, but I do appreciate the feedback I get from the members of this site. I tried much harder to get some 'animation' in my voice overs and dropped the banjo (for now). Take a look and give me some feedback, criticism, or a thumbs up if you like the content. It's greatly appreciated. Thanks Shane
  8. Brown shrimp are a very common food source for many fish. I used to fish quite regularly in the gulf of mexico, and it was probably the most common bait people used out there. Many fish like redfish and seatrout love these little snack meals. This fly mimics the looks of a brown shrimp, but also with the right fishing techniques can also mimic the movement almost perfectly. You will catch lots of fish with this fly. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - Size 2 Body: Starburst Dubbing - Tan Antenna: Crystal Flash - Gold Eyes: Mono Eyes - Pink Thread: Ultra Thread 70 - Black
  9. This streamer is to mimic small minnows and baitfish that predator fish hunt regularly. Minnows especially. Tied in this color pattern its great for fishing in the gulf for redfish and seatrout as a finger mullet imitation, or even as a fly for fishing bass and trout in rivers or lakes as a minnow imitation. The pearl belly perfectly imitates a small baitfish with a transparent belly. Hook: Daiichi 1750 Fiber: Bull Frog Dubbing - Caddis tan, caddis brown, and caddis orange Flash: Starburst Dubbing - Pearl, tan and golden peacock Eyes: 4mm 3D eyes Head Cement and Fletch Tite for adhesive
  10. This "flash minnow candy" uses a flexible UV curing resin for the body shape of the fly. Instead of using hard curing resin which doesn't feel realistic, and is prone to cracking/breaking. This will be more durable, and utilizing a flashy material, it will shine brilliantly in the water. This fly is great for both fresh and saltwater fish. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 2 Tail fiber: Unique hair - clear/white Flash fiber: Starburst dubbing - pearl, holographic silver, jet black Eyes: 3D 4mm eyes Eye adhesive: Fletch Tite Body Resin: Solarez "flex" UV curing resin Thread: Danville clear monofilament thread - Fine
  11. Blue gills are some of the top food sources for some large freshwater predatory fish like bass, trout, pike, and walleye. Bluegill are in almost every lake and pond across america and most of the world. They have a yellow and bright orange belly with an olive back. The olive color rabbit zonker has stripes on it in order to imitate the stripes on the back of these baitfish. Also the dubbing colors will imitate the bluegills belly colors. It also swims really nicely with lots of movement. Hook: Daiichi 1750 - Size 10 Thread: Ultra Thread 70 - Burnt Orange Tail: Olive and white marabou Top Body: Olive barred bunny zonker Body Wrap: Bull Frog Dubbing - White, yellow hopper, and caddis orange. Eye: 4mm 3D eyes Eye adhesive: Fletch Tight Head Building: Solarez "Thin Hard" UV curing resin
  12. This fly uses a heavy dumbbell to keep the fly swimming hook point up. The way this fly is tied, the dumbbell is hidden with the craft fur and 3D eyes. This fly, being tied with craft fur, moves wonderfully in the water. The movement is much like a dying baitfish due to occasionally turning sideways slightly when being jerked. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 1/0 Fiber: Craft fur (white and chartreuse) Hook Wrap: Pearl cactus chenille Thread: Danville Fly Master - 70 Denier Weight: Dumbbell Eyes - 5mm Eyes: 3D eyes - 5mm Adhesive: Fletch Tight Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" UV Resin
  13. So, I got hacked once again, sorry I am not able to put the link to this fly on my website, but thats because I cannot use my website anymore. So this fly will just be the youtube link with less info, sorry guys! This fly is really simple and easy to tie, but gives great results. Its very flashy, and will be seen even in murky water. You can tie many of these quickly due to only taking a few minutes each. The materials also don't hold much water, and therefor will be easy to cast. All of the materials I used today can be bought for very little money from fly tiers dungeon. With the exception of the adhesive, thread and hook, the materials cost less than $5, but will allow you to tie many many of these flies. Hook: Gamaktasu SS15 size 2 Thread: Ultra Thread 70 (brown/olive) Body Wrap: Tinsel Twist (olive) Tail Flash: Northern Lights (olive) and Pearl Web (hot white) Dubbing: Bull Frog (BWO) and Starburst (olive) mixed together Eyes: 3D eyes size 4mm Eye Adhesive: Fletch Tight Knot Adhesive: Hard as Hull
  14. Click on the link below for viewing on my website, or watch the streaming video. However you want. Fat Head Squishy Perch Streamer Fly This fly moves really nicely in the water. The shell made by the UV resin makes this fly move very interestingly in the water. It glides and jerks kinda like a slow sinking jerk bait. The movement is very unique and in my experience, uncommonly found in other flies. The fly looks great in the vice, but looks even better in the water. It is almost translucent and shows the yellow dubbing (you could even use orange) under the white dubbing. I did not come up with this technique. A video I watched a while back had this technique with the flexible UV resin. Its pretty awesome in my opinion, and has really changed my fly tying ability for this type of fly. The fish slay this on my local lake. Small mouth, large mouth, and even a pike last time I went out with it a month or so ago. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 2 Thread: Ultra thread 70 denier in orange Tail Flash: Pearl web Fiber: Bull frog dubbing (white, yellow, pale olive, blue wing olive) Flash Fiber: Starburst dubbing (pearl, light gray, golden peacock) Stripes: Brown sharpie Eyes: 3D eyes size 7MM Resin: Solarez "flex formula" UV curing resin.
  15. This video is part of a series. Please don't tell me that I should have talked about the difference between dry fly hackle, or hackle quality, or how to buy a cape, or anything like that. This video is for a specific purpose. I have a flies that I use this specific technique for. Instead of showing it in the entire video, I can just link to this one. This allows me to offer more info, or less info. You can select another video if you want more information. Or you can watch a simple 4 minute video without having to watch the extra steps, if you already know how. While there is much more to know about hackle, I am focusing on the simple stuff, with selecting hackle feathers off of a cape for use in a streamer tails, wings and as lateral lines. Its very important to prepare the hackle properly, and select the right feathers in order to get them to sit right on the fly, and even get the correct action.

  16. The clouser minnow is one of the most widely used and effective streamer patterns for both salt and fresh water fly fishing. It has a really nice jigging action, and also sinks a bit to where the fish are. Its fairly easy to tie, and uses just a handful of materials. The bucktail moves really nicely in the water as well. If you ever watch the professional bass fisherman on conventional gear, they will throw a color pattern called Sexy Shad quite regularly. This is probably one of the most common crank bait color, made popular by Kevin Van Dam. I decided to copy that color pattern to create a great Large Mouth Bass or small mouth bass fly for fishing the shad spawn. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 hook in size 2, but it can be tied on any strong long shanked hook. Weight: lead dumbbell eye Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed in blue (can use white as well for this pattern) Body: White, yellow, and blue buck tail Flash: Pearl flashabou (under the white bucktail) and gold crystal flash (under the yellow buck tail) Epoxy: Solarez "Thin Hard" UV curing resin.

  17. Hey guys, I just finished the ridiculously long process of moving from California to New Mexico. I finally was able to unpack all my stuff, and setup for a quick video. I now have a bit more room to work with in the new place, and was able to shoot with the camera over the shoulder so you can get the POV type of video. (Thanks for those who recommended this). Sorry I have been away for over a month, I just really had many issues with this move. We have been staying in a hotel for what seems like forever. Anyway, now that I am unpacked, I will be back to my 1-2 video's per week schedule. Please enjoy this new video. The Mc Fry Glass Candy is a variation of my Mc Fry Glass Minnow in which I epoxy up the hook shank a bit more. I also use a few different materials as well. This is a very realistic looking fly that is made to mimic small fry or glass minnows. 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. Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 size 1/0 Thread: Danville ultra fine monofiliment Body wrap: Super Pearl Braid, and Super tinsel twist Fiber: Super Flash Dubbing (Pearl and Holo-Silver) Eyes: 3/32" silver eyes Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" and "bone dry" formula Music: Sunny, funnysong, ukulele - Bensound.com
  18. Hi Guys, I present a my baitfish imitation ... It's a good fly for Salt and freshwater fishing.... I hope that you like it ! Thanks a lot for watching. Giovanni http://gdpdressing.blogspot.it/
  19. The square tail marabou deceiver is a great baitfish imitation. Its got a wide profile, and moves nicely in the water due to the marabou. The marabou is protected from being ripped up by the more durable buck tail surrounding it. This fly can be tied in a number of colors, and sizes. Making it great for a large number of fish species. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 size 2 Thread: Danville 210 waxed (pink) Tail: Marabou (hot pink) Flash: Flashabou (pearl) and krystal flash (pink) Wings: Bucktail (hot pink and white) Gill: Red krystal flash Eyes: Silver 3D eyes (size 5/32) Epoxy: Solarez "thin hard" and "bone dry" formulas Music: Sunny, funnysong, happiness - Bensound.com Linked video's: Preparing bucktail - https://youtu.be/glU67iVvkc0
  20. 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.

  21. What do you guys think of this glass minnow? I usually tie it with bucktail, but I got this synthetic material recently and decided to tie it in that. Tell me what you think? The video is only 6 minutes and 45 seconds. https://youtu.be/ffMVjYoSczc
  22. I have tied a few trout flies and understand the differences between dry fly and wet/streamer fly hooks. However, since I don't live close to trout fishing I would like to tie for panfish and bass. My question to you tying guru's is this - Do I really need to worry about the hook classification (wet vs. dry) for panfish and bass? Also, I am thinking about tying for bluegill and crappie so I am thinking about using hook sizes 10 - 6. Is that appropriate? Can I just go to my walmart and pick up some aberdeen style hooks to tie, or do I need to stick with the wet/dry fly hooks at the more expensive retailers for better results. I would prefer to spend the extra money if it does yield better results because that is what matters most to me. I just didn't know if it really mattered all that much. I appreciate any help I get from yall. Thanks in advance!
