Sliders

Today I tied up some slider style flies. They are a fun and easy tie. These are supposed to be a very effective fly. I have fished them very little but I hope one day to be throwing these at some big redfish. Advertisements

Fly Tying Excess

Having to sit around with my broken leg has led to many flies being tied. This means I have an excess of flies and no means to use them right now, so I am selling my excess flies on Ebay. I figure it is one way to keep some cash flowing in to support my…

Mad River GoPro Video

Back in February I drove down to check out the Mad River. One of the few rivers in Ohio that holds trout. It looks like a great place to fish and I had a couple trout chase my streamer but only caught a few other species on a wetfly. Here is my first attempt at…

#TarponTuesday 7-7-15

Many dedicated fly fisherman lust after the same thing I do, a week in a tropical paradise casting to 100+ pound tarpon and watching them explode out of the water after you perfectly strip-set. Well, I have to feed this desire and keep from blowing out the bank account with 1000+ mile trips to the…

Not Just Trout Fly Tying Tutorial – Deceiver Fly

Here is my simple version of the time-tested Deceiver fly pattern. I have caught many bass on this exact pattern. I tie the majority on a 2/0 hook because it represents the size of the shad in the waters I fish, but it can be scaled up or down to almost any size. I also…
