What fly designer, Tracy Smith says about her Lady Flesh flies: "I was born and raised in Alaska and have been blessed with the opportunity to live and fish in an area some people only dream about. 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 nearby slurping eggs or gorging itself with that perfect piece of rotting carcass. My love for the rainbow has narrowed my tying focus in...

Chartreuse accents make many good patterns a little better. Like the skunk for example. A smidgen of this color just seems to get the exchange with the fish started more regularly. As for the yarn collar, it should not hide the fly. Veils are for weddings. A wispy, sexy, thin, see-thru yarn collar makes the Lingerie Egg irresistible to all species that crave the orange protein diet.

The body on this fly is constructed from a slick, shiny, top secret type of sheet foam. It is a fly that has proven more difficult than many anglers want to tie. But, the Loco Hex Dun is unsinkable and very durable, and the colors mimic the local insects perfectly. These are have-to-have flies in the Pacific Northwest if you are a dedicated lake fly fisher.

Low Water Green Butt Purple By: Frank Day As the opposite hills slowly started to gain definition with the first light of dawn, I was staring intently into my Wheatley box. I asked myself, "If I were a Deschutes summer steelhead, what fly would warrant a good savage snap of the jaws as it swims its way across the current in front of me?" There was one fly in particular that just said "fish me." It was a Low Water Green Butt Purple. The fluorescent chartreuse butt and head of the fly simply...

Item #: 15-0300-10 -

True duns mimic the hatches of smaller Hexagenia mayflies, which occur in marginal Hex habitat. Some lakes and rivers have hatches of diminutive size Hexes. What sets this pattern apart and makes it so effective is the life-like lucent wing made from soft mesh, which unfortunately is somewhat fragile. Three or four trout is the life expectancy of these flies. However, they often catch fish when other flies get refusals. One of the key components of this fly is the molded body, which naturally...

Steelhead evolved in the rivers that drain the Pacific Rim. And when one dreams of perfect steelhead rivers, you just naturally have to think about Oregon. The Rogue, Umpqua, Deschutes, John Day and Grand Rhonde are some of the better known steelhead rivers in the world. Other rivers such as the Sandy, Clackamas and North Santiam may be nearly as good in their rights. Because of it's geographic placement, many Oregon rivers fish nearly year round. This makes Oregon a prime laboratory for...

March Brown Mayfly HatchesRhithrogena morrisoni (that's the scientific name)Western March Browns are your first "easy-to-see" hatch of the new season. Look for March Brown hatches on local rivers when water temperatures start reaching 42 degrees consistently. This can occur in most lower elevation water sheds in mid-February and continues through March and early April. Hatching March Browns can create some very exciting surface film and dry fly fishing. Hatches of duns usually start in the...

This pattern was developed by Mark Bachmann in the early 1990's for the hatch at Timothy Lake. It replicates the sequence when the dun is nearly out of the shuck or an emerging dun that is hung up in the shuck. Either way, trout like it. Fish it in the film with the body greased.

Item #: 22958 -

Mark's Olive Damsel Nymph It is unclear how the fly got stuck behind the maxillary flipper, but it makes a very good background for Mark's Olive Damsel Nymph when it is in the water. Damselflies are those delicate iridescent blue or red insects that you see flying around lakes and ponds. In the nymphal stage they range from olive to tan, are free swimming and often exposed to cruising trout. Bass and panfish will also feed heavily on damselfly nymphs. Damselfly nymphs are strong swimmers....

The Prism was first tied by Mark Bachmann in the early eighties. He designed it to be an unobtrusive pattern for low, clear water. The Prism works any time of year, but is especially effective during the late season after the steelhead have been pressured. Several very large steelhead have been tricked by the Prism. In October, many summer steelhead have been away from the Ocean feeding grounds for several months. They start to forget about the brightly colored marine organisms that nurtured...

Item #: 25-1410- -

This fly started as a good deed from another angler who tied me a few flies while we were staying in San Pedro and fishing around Ambergris Key in Belize about 2000. I didn't have all the ingredients that my benefactor had used, but the substitutes worked even better than the originals. Mark's Spawning Shrimp is mighty tasty to bonefish and a host of other flats fish and to fish that live in the mangroves, such as snook, snappers, jacks and even an occasional permit. This is one fly that you...

Mark's Marabou Tube Flies have gained popularity for several kinds of anadromous game fish. Recently this type of fly has become extremely popular for both winter and summer steelhead. Originally designed so that a smaller hook could be used with a large fly to cut injury to wild steelhead, this configuration also proved itself as a way to land a higher percentage of fish that were hooked. These flies are very streamlined and easy to cast. Plastic tube models are very lightweight which gives...

Marks Winter Baetis Emerger Marks Baetis Emerger, Black and Chartreuse
Price: $2.25
Availability: In Stock 1-2 day
Item #: 20089 -

Winter Baetis Mayflies can be very dark colored. Many are jet black. As the nymph swims to the surface the adult insect is already separating itself from the nypmphal shuck. Bright green bands form at each abdominal segment. As the skin splits down the back of the head and between the wing pads of the nymph, the dun starts to emerge through this tear. At this point, the insect can neither swim nor fly. It is completely helpless and a perfect target. Mark Bachmann pattern.

Mercer's October Caddis Skater Steelhead Fly Three of these flies just magically showed up in my "waker box." I can't remember who gave them to me, but it was probably the Umpqua Feather Merchants rep; I get samples from fly reps all of the time. In August of 2013, I decided to try one while fishing the Deschutes for steelhead. It took about ten casts to prove its worth with a fish to my hand. More fish followed in short order, and this little foam-headed thing became my go-to fly. It took...

Stuart Foaxall, Aqua Flies Fly Designer: I have been fly fishing and tying flies for well over 30 years, but mainly for European species. I took the plunge 6 years ago and booked "a trip of a lifetime" chasing Pacific fish. To say that it has absorbed me is an understatement... I just can't get enough. I spend over four weeks a year chasing Pacific salmon and my favorite, the steelhead. The chance to catch this enigmatic fish that I had read and dreamed about as a kid reading Roderick Haig...

Item #: 64208 -

On a trip to Andros South Bonefish Camp, we drifted up within casting range of a whitish streak of clouded water. It was being caused by bonefish rooting for food buried in the bottom of the shallow flat. Sometimes bonefish hydraulically excavate food organisms from soft silt by squirting jets of water from their mouths. This results in a cloud of debris which drifts with the current, sometimes for many yards. The cloud is called a "Mud." As we slowly approached the mudding fish, I offered a...

The Bantam: The perfect late summer/early winter steelhead flyHere at FFS we think Miguel Morejohn’s bantam is one of the best late fall/ early winter steelhead flies around. Size wise this fly comes in at about 2” in length making it the perfect size for most all water conditions. It’s large enough to elicit an aggressive take in a fresh fish, but small enough to not spook more skittish late season summer fish. It has a very small set of lead eyes to break surface tension and provide a nice...
