This is what Bjorn Beech says about the Stinger Prawn Series:"In the 1980's we got tired of fishing normal type steelhead patterns. As fly tiers were playing with various marabou patterns, I came up with what later became known as "Bjorn's Super Prawn."After some tweaks and playing around with hooks it started catching other species especially spring Chinook. The first order I had for kings consisted of a meager 1 dozen flies but the next year that same order was 6 dozen, then 12 dozen, and it...

Item #: GB -

These Glo Bugs®, are a product of The Bug Shop. They are the real thing, not cheap copies. All eggs change color as the embryo inside them develops. Trout and salmon eggs go through a similar metamorphosis. First the tiny eyes of the fish inside the egg forms a dark spot. Then the darker reddish-orange yoke sack starts to form. In later stages the silvery form of the fish is seen through the outer membrane of the egg. If the egg is unfertilized it dies quickly and turns an opaque whitish-pink....

Jumbo Critter Jumbo Critter
Price: $3.50
Availability: In Stock
Item #: ST073 -

This is what Bjorn Beech says about the Jumbo Critter series: "This pattern originally belongs to the late Wally Bolger. I cleaned up the edges by spinning the hair a little sparser and more evenly around the shank creating a fly limited in size only by the length of hair used. I've tied this fly from little 1-1/2" summer run steelhead patterns to 6" long monster king versions. A combination of sparsely spun hair and a pheasant tail collar gives us a big loud wiggly pattern. Major benefits to...

As a Fishery Biologist for the Department of Fish & Game, fish are my life and rainbows are one of my favorites. With abundant salmon runs, the rainbow is always near by slurping eggs or gorging itself with that perfect piece of rotting carcass. My love for the rainbow has narrowed my tying focus in...

Mike McCune says this about the the Big Gulp Sculp, "The Big Gulp Sculpin, like so many other original patterns, has been in a constant state of evolution for more than 20 years. Originally designed to imitate sculpins and blackfish found in the waters of Southwest Alaska, colors have been incorporated to mimic or suggest forage fish species found world-wide. One of the characteristics that make the fly so successful is the incorporation of both rabbit fur and marabou. The deer hair collar,...

Availability: In Stock
Item #: S103 -

Sculpzilla was designed to fulfill the need for a streamer that would dredge the deepest pools while enabling an effective presentation of a sculpin darting for a hiding place. While working with the prototypes, a stinger hook was chosen because of great holding properties, and less damage to fish due to the narrow gauge and short shank of the octopus hook. Another design benefit of the stinger is that since the hook is not connected to the head in the traditional sense, the back end of the...
