  5. Here is a tutorial I just completed on the Slumpbuster. http://www.fishbaitsflybox.com/2014/10/slumpbuster.html Hope you enjoy it!
  6. So there I was, wondering what to do with those other pheasant feathers, you know; the ones other than the tail. I also got to use some variant hen neck. I'm thinking scuplins, shiners, and shad might be covered by this group.
  7. hey I had an idea of a fly thats basically a slim mylar tube body and tail but i added two rubber legs at the head o was first thinking it might mimmick a salamander but when i looked closer at the finished product i snipped the legs quite short it looked like a minnow of some sort. by buddy says it looks like a disco dasmel which he called it when i did it with a blue deer hair.
  8. Since the holiday is close, I decided to make a video of a fun pattern...part Slumpbuster, part Meat Whistle, part Zonker...basically a fun streamer that catches fish. There's even an added ingredient to guarantee success...gotta watch the last minute of the video for that one! Enjoy, and Happy Halloween! TC
  9. One small step for mankind but a big step for fly fishing....share and enjoy... Sponsered by: http://www.leecheyewear.com
  10. I'm tying streamers for trout and smallmouth. I have been using marabou, bucktail, rabbit strips, etc. But I'm wondering if there is a better synthetic out there. There are SO MANY different synthetics in the catalogs and at the local fly shops, I don't know where to start. I have tried EP fibers (and similar FTD material), but it seems to tangle easily when fished in longer streamers. I tried the EP baitfish tying style and am not sure I like the way these swim. I'd like to imitate baby/small trout with ~ 3-4" streamer. If you were going to tie a 3 color bucktail type streamer, where the material extends a hook shank length beyong the bend, what is your choice of a swimmy synthetic that doesnt tangle or wrap around the hook? Thanks!
  11. The Hen Saddle Matuka is another fly that is apart of Mike's Deadly Dozen. In this video Mike Lawson talks about why he likes the Hen Saddle Matuka and gives detailed instructions on tying the pattern. Mike says "This is down and dirty". This is a must have pattern for any serious streamer fisherman. https://vimeo.com/62938607
  12. A trout streamer pattern. Its called Mike's Red Rocket (I believe its a Mike Schmidt pattern but dont quote me on that). Black and blue..seems to be a good combo.
  13. What are the best hackles for streamer saltwater/warmwater patterns? Where should i buy from? What companies? Saddle or neck? Rooster or hen? HELP!!
