Video: How to Tie the EP Micro Crab Fly

The EP Micro Crab is a perfect small crab pattern for bonefish, redfish and permit developed by Enrico Puglisi. It was designed to fool spooky fish in shallow water. The light weight beadchain eyes allow for the fly to land softly in skinny water.  The EP Micro Crab can be tied in several color variations: Tan, Olive and Rootbeer are the most popular color patterns, but Gray and Purple have also been known to catch fish! Have fun and take your time with this fly. Once tied and glued, the EP Micro Crab is really durable and will catch a ton of fish!

Video: How to Tie the Morris Boatman Fly

The Morris Boatman is a little known late season stillwater pattern developed by fly tier Skip Morris. This fly is meant to imitate a small water boatman and these little bugs get very active late in the season. Huge trout will chase these little bugs down like missiles. There is nothing like a water boatman hatch! It turns ordinary trout into killer trout! The Morris Boatman is best tied in sizes #14-16, but can be tied larger or smaller. My favorite color is the Olive version, but the Silver version is also very effective! Don’t forget these little bugs in your box. The “Boatman” hatch is one of those overlooked stillwater secrets!!

Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers

The Road Less Travelled

The Road Less Travelled

To state the obvious: there are many ways to get to Yellowstone National Park. It is a huge tract of land (over 3,472 square miles) lying at an odd-shaped joining of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Most guide books recommend that if you have time, and trust me, you will want to set aside a bit of time, then plan to spend a few days in the different parts of the park with accommodation nearby. This will cut down on travel time and allow you to immerse yourself in the experience a whole lot more.

After much research, our plans took us from LAX through Denver and on to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This has to be one of the most breathtaking airports in the world, with a backdrop of the Grand Tetons and the Snake River only a short hike away. Touching down we knew our adventure had begun.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming. One of the most spectacular airports in the States.
