Tequeely Pattern Description: The Tequeely has been around for qui te some time, but I am afraid I know, and can find very little about it's creator or inception. What I do know is that it's a great shallow running streamer pattern, it's easy to cast and on the right day fish go bananas for
Shaggy Leech Pattern Description: It recently has come to my attention that this site contains NO leech patterns! Well, it seems as though that was right, so here I am to fix it! This little leech pattern is nothing terribly original, but is non-the-less a great imitation of a bloodsucker. This is a quick, easy
Hell Razor Craw, McCannel's Pattern Description: From Flyfisherman Magazine, 2017 I’ve always felt like there are very few gaps in my fly arsenal. I have boxes and boxes of flies for every stage of every insect I may encounter on my home waters and about thirty pounds of patterns for bugs I just might encounter.
Platte River Spider, Schrantz's Pattern Description: The Platte River Spider sprang from the mind of my good friend, Chris Schrantz.

At any rate, here is my latest
Zonker Pattern Description: The Zonker is a unique baitfish pattern developed by Dan Byford. The beauty of the Zonker lies in its simplicity. It can be tied with as few as two materials, but we have dressed it up a bit here and added a few parts. The Zonker was the first fly that made
Black Nosed Dace Pattern Description: The Black Nosed Dace is a traditional bucktail streamer pattern. After a long absence from western fishing, it has made a recent comeback with the rising popularity of these classic streamers. Bucktails are really very simple to tie, and the techniques used here are transferable to many other bucktail patterns.
Black Ghost Pattern Description: The Black Ghost is an old eastern streamer that has gained a bit of a following with the upswing in classic feather wing streamers. This is really a pretty simple tie but has a few little hitches that can throw you off a bit, so I've included it here. I have
Woolhead Sculpin Pattern Description: Here is the Woolhead Sculpin that many of you had asked for. In this tutorial, I hope to take some of the mystery out of spinning wool. It works similarly to deer hair but rather than counting on the elasticity and hollowness of the hair to spin it, you'll need to
Clouser Minnow Pattern Description: The Clouser Minnow was invented by Bob Clouser as a smallmouth bass pattern. It imitates a baitfish as well as any pattern ever conceived and has taken more types of fish than any other pattern I know of.
