How to Tie the Copper John Fly: Video

The Copper John. Do I need to say more? Created by the infamous John Barr, just about anyone who has fly fished has heard of or thrown this fly. It is a go-to attractor pattern year round. It will imitate a wide range of bugs from mayflies, stoneflies, and even caddis or midges. Fish it smaller in the colder months and larger in the summer. Most commonly the copper john is tied using copper or red wire but there are many color variations out there. If you want to get the skunk off get the copper john tied on!

How to Tie the Autumn Splendor Fly: Video

How to Tie the Autumn Splendor Fly: Video

If it’s streamer season you better think about throwing this fly! It was created by Tim Heng who was a long time Colorado fly fishing guide and tyer. The Autumn Splendor is a beefed up wooly bugger with action that can’t be beat. The Marabou tail along with some flash and movement provided by the rubber legs is a great fly to pull large fish out of deep holes or any other location. You can fish it as a stand-alone streamer or on both ends of a tandem streamer rig. Whether you like it chasing a smaller wooly bugger or in front of a larger articulated fly it will bring great success!
