The barred blue Zonker

Barred blue zonker – streamer fly tying tutorial

Watch the underwater footage of this fly, and you know you are gonna need to tie it! The Zonker is not a specific pattern, but a type of streamer fly typically tied with a furry skin strip from rabbit for wing and tail. You can use other types of fur as well. Muskrat, fox, mink […]

Perch under water with black and purple marabou jig

Black and Purple Marabou Jig – UW- special: real honest fish reactions

Watch some real honest and unbiased fish reactions to my Black and Purple Marabou Jig :0) This is our take on the popular reaction movie trend.

Hugh Falkus’ Medicine – Seatrout Fly tying tutorial – video

The late Hugh Falkus’ simple Medicine is a top producing fly for seatrout (sea run brown). It was created for river fishing, but in my opinion it is equally effective in the salt.

Enjoyed the night looking at […]

The Blue Dun Soft Hackle

Sea run brown on Mickey Finn

The Polar Shrimp

Polar Shrimp – Classic steelhead and salmon fly tying tutorial – video
