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...

Item #: SIG -

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...

One of the most recognized insects is the blood sucking mosquito. Of course, mosquitoes are aquatic insects, so they are always around water where people are fishing. Many anglers would associate mosquitoes as fish food. Because of their wandering life style, is doubtful that many adult mosquitoes are eaten by trout. However, the Mosquito fly has been very successful and is very popular with many anglers today. It is most successful as a fly for fishing lakes. This may be because it looks more...

The Muddler Minnow is one of the most popular fly patterns in the world. According to Joseph D. Bates, in his classic book "Streamers & Bucktails," the Muddler Minnow fly was invented by commercial fly tyer Don Gapen in about 1950 to catch Brook trout from the Nipigon River, Ontario, CA. Since then the "Muddler" has been copied by nearly every fly tyer and used to catch nearly every specie of fresh water game fish that will eat a fly. The Muddler was originally tied to represent the Cockatush...

Norm Wood was a very popular fishing guide on the Deschutes River for 30 years. His Golden Stonefly pattern is tied with a wing & tail made from tan dyed calf tail hair. Calf tail traps air between the hair fibers and floats very well. Some anglers believe that these flies will often out produce patterns tied with the more conventional elk hair wings and tails. There are a number of Norm Wood Specials out there. We have examined this pattern as tied by the originator, and copies of the...

Callibaetis are the most numerous mayflies in many of the Western Hemisphere's lakes, ponds and slow moving streams.

Many mayflies that in the dun stage are yellowish or pinkish color in the dun stage, turn mahogany color in the spinner stage. It always pays to capture one of the real flies so that you can match it for size and color. I like to carry a pair of high resolutions binoculars to scan the water and identify what trout are actually feeding on.

Item #: BB280 -

Many mayflies that hatch as light green or olive duns turn into spinners of the same general shades. Trout can be very picky when feeding on spinners. Especially when feeding in scum lines in slow back-eddies, trout normally find that one type of food is preferable to all others. It is always best to spend a lot of time observing your quarry before making that crucial first cast. Then you must be very precise in your fly placement in front of the fish. Putting your fly exactly in the center of...

This is the most popular color of mayfly spinner overall. It seems that many different mayflies turn this color in the spinner stage. Although most mayfly spinners are fished on the surface, they can even be more productive fished as wet flies. After mayflies mate and reproduce, both sexes quickly die. These dead spinners only float for a short period of time and then they become waterlogged and sink, where they are consumed by trout.Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from...

Item #: BB300 -

Certain western spring fed rivers, such as Silver Creek in Central Idaho are famous for hatches of Trico Mayflies. During the spinner falls of these tiny mayflies, trout can feed ravenously, but be very selective as to the size, shape, color and attitude of your fly. Extremely thin tippets are the rule. 7X isn't out of the question. Very lightweight rods are often used to land large trout. Down-stream drag-free presentations are the rule. During these spinner falls the Organza Wing Trico...

Can you imagine, some companies actually sell panfish flies that don't have weed guards. Panfish are ambush fish. They like to work at close range. Weed beds provide the densest cover. And of course weed beds are most fully grown during the warmest part of the year when panfish are most active. Panfish metabolism is high during the summer months. Panfish are voracious feeders and easy to catch....if you can fish right in the weeds. Our Panfish Poppers have very strong weed guards. They are...

This gives double the visibility to the angler and double the floatation for the fly. The ParaWulff, although exceptionally difficult to tie, became very popular because it made fishing rough water easier. Why the purple body color?
