  1. DFP - Charlie Has Worms

    Charlie Has Worms! This is what happens when you leave a San Juan Worm and a Gotcha locked in a fly box together. Well, my Crazy Charlie got mixed up with a Squirmy Wormy. I ordered some sea anemone aquarium decorations to play around with. I like this material as it has some incredible stretch … Continue reading Charlie Has Worms → The post Charlie Has Worms appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog. View the full article
  2. I tie the Pyramid Lake Woolly Worm a little bit different from the ones from Jan Nemec, but they are essentially the same pattern. The chartreuse and black variation are referred to as the Northern Lights color. It’s a good choice for fishing water where the clarity isn’t optimal. You get a pop of color … Continue reading Tying the Root Beer Leech (Jack Simpson) → The post Tying the Root Beer Leech (Jack Simpson) appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  6. I started tying the Northshore Stonefly Nymph for a client but have been fishing this simplified stonefly nymph pattern designed for trout and steelhead. I tie the fly on a 3xl curved hook like the Mustad C53s, Tiemco 200R or the Partridge K12ST. You could also bens a 4 or 5xl streamer hook if you … Continue reading Northshore Stonefly Nymph → The post Northshore Stonefly Nymph appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog. View the full article
  7. It’s winter, but Mike from the Wooly Bugged Youtube Channel doesn’t let that stop him from catching a creel’s worth of hungry bows and browns.

  8. The Conehead Foxy Crystal Bugger is a departure from the original black and olive bugger Russell Blessing first cast many years ago. I use dyed fox tail hair in place of marabou. It maintains most of the action of marabou and adds extra durability for fishing hard-hitting trout and bass. You can tie this in … Continue reading Cone Head Foxy Crystal Bugger → The post Cone Head Foxy Crystal Bugger appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog. View the full article

  11. It’s about this time every year that I start fielding questions about what I want for gifts. I’m always at a loss to give suggestions, and I’m fully stocked up with pheasant tail and marabou.

    The Egg Sucking Ice Tiger is a fly that can be tied either on a standard hook or on a leashed shank fly. In this case, the fly was tied with a clipped shank and a wire leash.

  13. You may be familiar with George Cook’s famous Alaskabou Popsicle, this Orange Popsicle is a hairwing fly pattern for steelhead and salmon from BC fly tyer Bill Luscombe. The original pattern calls for the use of mallard in the tail and throat, but I think this fly would be well served with a stronger barred … Continue reading Orange Popsicle Salmon and Steelhead Streamer Fly → The post Orange Popsicle Salmon and Steelhead Streamer Fly appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.
