How To Tie The Smoke Wagon: Fly Tying Video

After watching a Kelly Galloup video where he says he has his best fishing one fall while using this pattern, you stop and tie up a bunch! This fly one me over really quickly due to the ease of tying and the sweet profile. A light weight streamer pattern, this fly shines as a point fly in a two fly rig. Lead it with a nice heavy cone head of some sort and let this swing off the back for some big hits!
