How To Tie Pav’s Micro Flesh: Fly Tying Tutorial Video

Pav’s Micro Flesh

After fishing 4-10” long flesh flies on big rivers like the Kenai, I wanted a little something for the small creeks and tributaries that get salmon runs. Though this fly is a simplistic tie, it is super effective. Pegging a bead above this fly makes it a little more fly fishy instead of the alternative of fishing a naked hook under your pegged bead. After hooking more fish and bigger fish in the small creeks, I was sold on this pattern I created. Just like any other fly you fish you have to match the hatch (the hatch being deceased salmon floating down the river) By August there should be enough salmon in the river that start dropping off to fish this fly. Rainbows and dollies are gorging on eggs and these chunks of flesh floating down the river. When you catch a whiff of death on the river think about breaking out the micro flesh.

How To Tie The Balanced Ghost (Balanced Leech): Fly Tying Video

The Balanced Ghost (Balanced Leech)

The balanced leech is fished best under an indicator in stillwaters when there is some wind causing top water disturbance to give constant action and movement to your fly. 10-20 feet of water seems ideal over weed beds. Tied in many colors, this fly is great for imitating a leech or a minnow. Try tying one today!

The Chart Baetis

A great baetis pattern to fish deep or in discolored or high/off colored water. A tungsten bead helps get rig down quick in turbulent water. I will also tie with couple other color matte beads. I like the fluorescent orange and the caddis green bead. Also try tying this fly from 16-22 hook sizes. An easy tie and very effective. Designed by Max Pavel.

The Bubble Back Midge

Effective midge pattern especially on Colorado Rivers. Tied in sizes 18-24. Good replacement for when the classic zebra isn’t getting as many takers as you would like. Fish it like you would any other midge pupae. Get it down and be ready for the subtle midge eats. Mix and match colors to get what you want. White with a pearl krystal flash rib can make a mean mysis imitation.

I flick the light off and leave it for later… When I sit down at my bench the next time I feel unmotivated and out of sorts. Keeping a clean tying area means better tying.

Here 5 quick things you can do to keep a cleaner bench.
