  1. The Blushing Onyx nymph is something I’ve been working on for just a short time and have only had a chance to get out fishing with it a couple times. So far, it’s been producing really well in the creeks I’ve fished it, bringing several nice resident trout and even a couple river chubs. The … Continue reading Tying a Blushing Onyx Nymph Fly Pattern → The post Tying a Blushing Onyx Nymph Fly Pattern appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog. View the full article

  3. The Mohawk Hotspot Pheasant Tail Nymph is a fly design from Justin Aldrich (check out his channel here – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa5G…) and was featured on JStockard’s blog in May 2018.

  4. The Flashback Seal scud has gone through a lot of changes in my flybox over the years. I’ve added the UV coating over the back flash as well as using a multicolored dubbing blend rather than a monotone one. It is in spring and fall when the scuds are at their peak populations in ponds … Continue reading Tying a Flashback Seal Scud → The post Tying a Flashback Seal Scud appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  5. I’ve only been able to hit the creeks a couple times this year, but I’ve been developing this brownline nymph for the past couple seasons. In particular, I wanted this fly to target a specific river, but I’m finding that it has been producing a ton of resident rainbow trout on all the creeks I’ve … Continue reading Tying the Brownline Nymph → The post Tying the Brownline Nymph appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  6. The Cluster Maggot is a dream find for any hungry trout, panfish or carp on the hunt. It’s likely that one of the first baits you used as a kid was a maggot on a hook, so you know how effective the off-white morsels are for catching. Now multiply this into a larger snack pack … Continue reading Cluster Maggot or Maggot Cluster? → The post Cluster Maggot or Maggot Cluster? appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  7. DFP - CDC & Elk Variant

    The CDC & Elk is one of my favorite dry flies for fishing small creeks throughout the season, but always one of the first I tie on. This is one of my most productive variations on Hans Weilenmann’s infamous original. I tie the fly in a variety of colours using CDC in yellow, olive and … Continue reading CDC & Elk Variant → The post CDC & Elk Variant appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  8. I ventured out to check out how my local stream fared over the winter and decided to tie a fly streamside. With a little luck, I was able to pind pretty much everything I needed to build a fine little Frenchie variation. I was hoping to find a pheasant tail, but what I ended up … Continue reading How to find Fly Tying Materials Streamside → The post How to find Fly Tying Materials Streamside appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  9. I first saw this fly pattern years ago while reading an article on GlobalFlyFisher written by Mike Martinek. Mike stated that he preferred to fish the Liggett Special over the Mickey Finn and claimed it as one of his all-time favorite bucktails. The bucktail was named for one Mr. Liggett, a Hathaway Shirt Co foreman. ...Continue reading View the full article
  10. Years ago, my cat Mags, got under my feet and I ended up stepping on the hair of his tail. A big chunk of hair was left behind, pretty much even tipped, and so I figured I would put it to good use. I decided to tie the cat hair into a Clouser pattern and … Continue reading Mags’ Clouser tied by Piscator Flies → The post Mags’ Clouser tied by Piscator Flies appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  12. DFP - Brass Zebra Bead Head

    The Brass Zebra is a mash-up of 2 popular trout flies. The Brassie and the Zebra Midge. This design is credited to Dan Liechty, but there are some other similar flies out in the world.

  13. This Bead Head Flashback Hare’s Ear Nymph is a simple variation on the classic Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear Nymph. The addition of the flashback and the riddance of the shellback make this easy to tie nymph a perfect confidence fl. It is going to be one of the staple flies in my small stream trout … Continue reading Tying a Bead Head Flashback Hare’s Ear Nymph → The post Tying a Bead Head Flashback Hare’s Ear Nymph appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.

  14. We get a behind the scenes look into the operations at Whiting Farms. There is a lot involved in order to get those even long hackles that fly tyers covet. There is the breeding selection process that is needed in order to breed in or out desired traits. There is the tracking of eggs from … Continue reading Whiting Hackle from Egg to Emerger → View the full article
  15. The Pink and Tan is a fly that reminds me of a time early in my fly fishing career when some of my fellow anglers took me to a secluded spot deep in the northern Alberta backcountry. We drove through foresty roads, more or less unmarked and abandoned. You may pass a truck every 20 … Continue reading Tying the Pink and Tan Grayling Bug with Darren MacEachern → The post Tying the Pink and Tan Grayling Bug with Darren MacEachern appeared first on The Daily Fly Paper Blog.
