Tying Tuesday: CDL Peacock Caddis

The folks over at Savage Flies have put together a great tutorial for tying an easy beginner caddis dry fly - the CDL Peacock Caddis. As someone who's not a beginner tier but still struggles with tying an elk hair caddis (I can get elk hair to behave on a variety of patterns just fine; on a caddis, though, I can never get it to look right), this is a...

Tying Tuesday: Dorsey's Top Secret Baetis

This week's edition of Tying Tuesday comes to us from Fly Fisherman Magazine. Charlie Craven shows you how to tie a pattern that needs little introduction - Pat Dorsey's Top Secret Baetis.

Tying Tuesday: The Trip Saver

This week's edition of Tying Tuesday features a pattern called the Trip Saver, from the folks over at Mainely Flies. I know a few flies that are personal "trip savers" but this one looks like it's worth having in your box.

Tying Tuseday: The Two Bit Midge

This week's edition of Tying Tuesday features the Two Bit Midge, tied by none other than Charlie Craven. Charlie knows a thing or two about tying, and this is a great pattern to have at the ready over the next few months.

Tying Tuesday: Indestructible Griffiths Gnat

The folks over at Fly Fish Food are back with an intriguing new pattern - a Griffiths gnat that's "indestructible" according to Cheech. If I'm going to take anyone's word for it, I'd take Cheech's. At any rate, I'm going to plan on tying a few of these up.

Tying Tuesday: Brig's Rippin' Rooster

In this week's edition of Tying Tuesday, we're treated to a pattern from Brig over at Fly Fish Food that's "proven to land more fish." With an endorsement like that, how could you go wrong? Kidding aside, this streamer looks plenty fishy, and I think I'll have to add a few to my box.

Video: Underhand Casting

Have you ever heard of underhand casting? Me neither. But apparently it's a technique that has some value, because the folks over at Loop Fly Fishing put together a wonderful video detailing the technique. You can view it below.

Tying Tuesday: Secret Wooly Bugger

The folks over at Mainely Flies just dropped a new fly tying tutorial, which is our focus for today's Tying Tuesday. And despite what the video thumbnail might show, this isn't just a standard wooly bugger. No, the folks at Mainely dressed this up with a secret ingredient.

Tying Tuesday: Fly Tying Skill Builder #1

In this week's edition of Tying Tuesday, I want to showcase a new series from the folks over at Fly Fish Food. They've just launched their Fly Tying Skill Builder series of videos, and the first one takes us through how to tie a half-hitch, how to work with deer hair, and how to work with zonker strips. These are critical skills that every tier should...

Tying Tuesday: Hi-Lo Streamer

In this week's Tying Tuesday, we're treated to a wonderful streamer pattern that I've personally used, to great success. The Hi-Lo streamer has the right kind of flash and contrast to really grab a fish's attention - especially the big ones.
