This week's Tying Tuesday post comes to us from Avid Max. It's a tutorial on tying a pretty cool nymph - the Beadhead Water Boatman.
This is a really interesting fly that I've never seen before - something I don't get to say all that often. The Pheasant Bugger jig is, according to the tier's description, a great fly for warm water fish. But I don't see why it wouldn't work for trout.
The second episode of the new series For Wild's Sake is up and live. It picks up where episode one left off, with Chase and Aimee in pursuit of the blueback trout, one of the rarest in Maine.
Chase and Aimee Bartee, the creative minds behind the YouTube channel Tight Loops, have really outdone themselves with their latest project.

Tom Rosenbauer just released a new video in his seemingly-endless supply of fly fishing wisdom. This video focuses on dry fly rise forms. As usual, Tom is incredibly informative without being overbearing.
The folks over at Avid Max fly tying on YouTube put together a great tutorial on a timely fly pattern - Mike Mercer's Missing Link Caddis. Caddis haven't started fluttering in droves in my neck of the woods, but we all know they're not far off. This is a great way to mix up your usual offering of elk hair caddis patterns.
