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!

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