  1. In this video, I tie the Mega Prince, which bares little resemblance to its predecessor. This is both a great trout and steelhead pattern, plus you can be creative and modify the Mega Prince with your favorite colors. This is a fun fly to both tie and fish, thus as I say in the video, have fun with this one! TC
  2. I am just curious if anyone has any tips they to add extra floating properties to their Dry Flies beyond the gel or paste on the fly while at the stream? I know materials used are important as to whether the material floats or absorbs water but is there anything you might add during or immediately after tying a dry fly that gives it better floating properties and/or repels water more effectively?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. This is my new video. Let me know what you think. Borski's Redfish Slider's are great flies for redfish and seatrout. The most common inshore forage for the gulf fish is brown shrimp. This fly mimics the brown shrimp wonderfully. It moves really nicely in the water due to being tied with craft fur. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 Hook Size 2. (you can use any saltwater long shanked hook) Weight: Dumbell Eyes (I used 5MM size) Body: Craft fur (I used tan, but you can use any color to match the shrimp in your area) Collar: Streamer sized saddle hackle (Red, pink, or orange to resemble the egg sack on shrimp). Head and upper collar: I used elk hair, but its more traditionally tied with deer hair. Elk hair tends to be slightly less buoyant, but deer hair is easier to spin Music: (Happiness & Sunny) Bensound.com https://youtu.be/Il9EgYAoNPM
  9. I fish this for redfish in the gulf. It does well for me. Let me know what you think. https://youtu.be/JGTNbsT715Y
  10. I use this fly to fish for redfish in the flats down in south Texas. It mimics a brown shrimp really well. Its a cross between a more realistic shrimp pattern and a crazy charlie. Seatrout love this fly as well. It can be tied in a number of colors. Its super easy to tie, not too many steps. Hook: Mustad 3407 size 1/0 Thread: Danville 210 Waxed Dubbing: The Kracken Dubbing Fiber: Super Fiber Weight: Bead chain eyes Epoxy: Solarez UV curing epoxy. "thin hard formula" and their "bone dry formula" https://youtu.be/v6wID8jhaqk
  11. Doc halls tailing shrimp was designed specifically to fish the flats for bonefish by Daniel "doc" Hall. He is a legendary bone fisherman that created many amazing flies that do a good job in tricking those tough and skittish bonefish. Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 Bonefish Hook size 8-2 (I am using size 6) You can also use any bonefish type hook. Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed color pink (pink, orange, salmon, brown and tan can all work) Also, you can use any thread size you feel comfortable with, I just like the ease of building a head with the flat waxed. Body: Super fiber color tan (tan, light brown, pink, orange, and white all work) You can also use buck tail. Flash: Krystal Flash color Gold (but you can use any color you want, get creative) Back: Grizzly saddle hackle, Use the cheaper stuff, no need for dry fly hackle. Just whatever you use for your wooly buggers or streamers. Make sure its thin on the tips though. Epoxy: Solarez "Thin Hard" UV curing epoxy.

  12. Everyone that ties regularly knows how to use buck tail , and prepare it properly. However those that are new into fly tying might not know the simple but crucial steps in preparing buck tail before tying it in. I make these tips and tricks type of video's for beginners, so keep that in mind when watching it. The video is under a minute long, so it won't take too much out of your day. haha https://youtu.be/glU67iVvkc0
  13. 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
  14. I changed up a bit of the normal standing shrimp materials. Whatcha think of this version? https://youtu.be/nLBgkANCa-I
  15. Does anyone know where I can find butterfly patterns. I don't plan on fishing these they're for safety pin flys for kids so I need something that looks realistic but fast to tie. I tied some last year and the kids were requesting them, so I ended up tying them as they waited, just made something up as I tied. This year I would like to be better prepared and have something tied and ready to hand out. I would be grateful for any help or direction. Jim H Quacker
