December Fly of the Month: Leadbelly Spey

Winter is upon us and with it the cherished opportunity to swing flies for steelhead in our favorite rivers and streams of the west coast. I’ve long been a fan of the classic Marabou Spey patterns for steelhead, from the simple wound marabou patterns of Bob Aid to the decidedly fancied up ties of John […]

November Fly of the Month: Rubber Legged Christmas Island Special

Fall and winter are great times to think about going somewhere the weather isn’t totally lousy and fishing for cool species we don’t get to experience around these parts. Bonefish are an incredible fly rod quarry. You’re targeting sighted fish that often demand your farthest and most delicate presentation and get to watch the whole […]

October Fly of the Month: Gold Bead Rolled Muddler

The Muddler Minnow has for many years possessed a supernatural fish-catching ability for all sorts of species. My love affair with the Muddler has introduced me to scads of big-shouldered river dwelling trout over several decades, swinging that thing on a sink tip or dry line.

September Fly of the Month: Peter Parker Cutty Spider

Spiders and sea run cutthroat go together like bread and butter, wine and cheese, beer and a big bag of Cheetos. This fly is inspired by the many great spider type flies that came before it, from Al Knudsen’s Spider, to Walt Johnson’s Spectral Spider and of course, Mike Kinney’s Reverse Hackle Spider. Yellow and […]

July Fly of the Month: Wounded Sculpin

Solitude’s Wounded Sculpin is a pretty simple pattern and a little baby sibling to larger streamers like the Zonker. Though sculpin come in a variety of sizes big and small in streams throughout the US, it stands to reason that trout get the opportunity to see and eat more small ones that big ones in […]

June Fly of the Month: Zudbubbler Bass Popper

Warm weather, warm water means active bass willing to attack helpless things making a big old commotion on the surface, including the flies you fish. A lot of fly tiers look at surface bass bugs made from spun deer hair or meticulously carved and painted wood or cork and shy away from the difficulty in […]

May Fly of the Month: Jean Claude Van Damsel

As our stillwaters heat up later in May and through the month of June, nature’s original hula dancers, the damsel nymphs get active and become readily available for foraging fish. Damsels are found around weed beds and migrate toward shoreline vegetation to emerge into adults. They are characteristically slender, move with a pronounced wiggle and […]
