Todd Ostenson is a steelhead guide and shop owner from Medford, Oregon. He says, "This fly follows the natural tying evolution of my love for heavy stonefly patterns. The first heavy stones I tied were ?Montana Stones,? then came more natural golden stones. Then came beads in the early nineties to my patterns, and the addition of rubber legs via the girdle bug. One small detail to my girdle bugs, during my years guiding the Deschutes, was the bright orange thread head. I wouldn?t tie one with...

Item #: 904 -

There are many "wormy" looking creatures that live in aquatic environments. Most lakes and weedy streams have dense populations of leeches and aquatic worms. During much of the time, they are buried in the substrate or bottom vegetation. However, during low light conditions they often forage about where they are exposed to patrolling game fish. Trout and bass seek out these tender morsels and eat them like candy. This is especially true early in the spring before weeds start to grow. Leeches...

Like trout feeding on midge pupas, many giant fish feed on small, fragile, easy-to-catch baitfish. Ninety-pound sailfish will eat 5-inch long Sardinas. One time we encountered three sails lounging on the surface. The guide tossed a Sardina at them. All three chased it and then several others. I threw a grey/white Baha Baitfish at the lead sailfish with a 10-weight rod. He took it without hesitation and stayed on for three jumps until the light leader came in contact with his raspy bill.

In their purest form, fishing flies are supposed to fool fish into believing that they are eating something that they normally feed on. Most avid fly tyers put a lot of study into what game fish eat in their natural environment so that they can replicate those organisms with tying materials to exacting detail. One would suppose that the tyer who can construct the most believable counterfeit has advantages in fooling his/her prey. It's called "matching the hatch.""Attractors" are fly patterns...

Often referred to as a snow-cone because of the pearl white bead used to add weight and to simulate the white gills of a midge pupa.
