From the educated Edward Ringwood Hewitt comes the Bivisiable. A pattern that is named for its function, as it is meant to be seen just as well by the fish as it is by the fisher. The darker of the two colors should show better to the fish’s eye while the lighter color creates nice contrast during a drift so it can be seen by you, the fly fisher. Being an attractor pattern this fly can be used to move fish that may be eating a variety of insects off the surface. It is a great trailing fly when fishing a larger dry in a two fly setup.

Don’t tell anybody you have this fly on point. Just say your hooking up on midge larva or something. They will never know but they will see you filling your net time and time again. Face it, if you were a fish eating midges or baetis all day and then saw a big fat juicy worm headed your way, you would eat it to. The Squirmy Wormy material used is an amazing fish catching material. The movement it provides in the water is unmatched by other worm imitations. Add a Firehole Outdoors Pink Bead and you have a solid pattern!
Fall is the time of year when crisp air rolls in, the leaves on the trees turn beautiful shades of red, yellow, orange, and brown, and all things in nature seem to settle down and start preparing for the long winter months ahead. It is an especially pleasant time of year for fly fishing, and you are likely to experience less competition among other anglers who are all searching for their own secret hole along the water’s edge. Whether you have been fly fishing your entire life or are new to the sport, here are some tips to ensure you have a successful fall fly fishing trip: Continue reading “Tips for an Epic Fall Fly Fishing Experience”

With cool weather comes the BWO. Covering many types of mayflies in the US we look forward to the seasons that bring these bugs to life. They bring dry fly fishing early in the spring and then again in the late fall. This Hi-Vis parachute pattern is a go to dry fly for when the hatch is in full swing. With a pink parachute post you will enjoy watching your drift rather than struggling to see where you fly lays. Throw it at some rising fish and wait for the take!

Leechy indeed! I love this pattern because of its versatility. It fishes really well in a variety of water types and really shines in deep pools and in stillwater. The conehead on this pattern partnered with a slow retrieve will help to create undulating movement that mimics a leech expanding and contracting while it swims. Or, if you are in a lazier type of mood give it a good dead drift and it can be just as effective. Simple to tie and maybe even easier to fish!
Have you ever been on the water and wondered why the guy or gal fishing near you continually lands fish after fish? All the while your day is going relatively uneventful. You were hoping to have a fantastic day on the water. You took the day off work, loaded up on good flies, and arrived at the water early. Why is the other person doing so well? Are they using some hot fly pattern that’s irresistible to the trout? Are they in a better spot? What if I was to tell you it is probably neither of these things… Continue reading “How To Fly Fish Using Indicator Nymphing Techniques”
