Tying Tuesday: Hog Magnet

This week's Tying Tuesday features some fun flies, including a great chironomid pattern, a traditional mayfly nymph from Ireland, and a worm pattern from Charlie Craven.

Tying Tuesday: The Easy Street Midge

In this week's Tying Tuesday, we're treated to a few fun patterns. The first is the Easy Street Midge, from Barry Ord Clarke, of the Feather Bender on YouTube. This little midge pattern has all the looks of a fishy fly, and I can see myself tying up a few for the box. Our next pattern is a fun Yellow Sally imitation from the folks over at Fly Fish Food...

Tying Tuesday: Cased Caddis Larva

This week's edition of Tying Tuesday comes to us from Tim Flagler, where he shows us how to tie a cased caddis larva. Whenever I see a tying tutorial for a cased caddis, I'm reminded that I don't fish with these nearly often enough. They should definitely be in your box, especially as we gear up for the first caddis hatches of the year.

Tying Tuesday: Bugs We Found on The River

In this week's edition of Tying Tuesday, we treated to a bit of an impromptu masterclass from Brian Flechsig and Tim Flagler. The two discuss how they found some Hendrickson nymphs on the Mad River, and how that led them to tie up their own imitations of that venerable bug. It's fun - and enlightening - to see the thought process of two accomplished tiers.

Tying Tuesday: Picky Eater

This week's Tying Tuesday features an interesting little nymph from Charlie Craven, called the Picky Eater. As its name implies, this bug should help put fish in the net when it feels like they're refusing everything else in your box.
