Green drake emerger

This green drake emerger is an effective pattern when there are prolific hatches and the fish are playing hard to get. Tie it in different sizes and colours and it works well for many species of emerging mayfly.

Antron yarn caddis pupa

 

A twisted Antron yarn segmented abdomen makes this easy caddis larva a nice alternative to dubbed bodies.

Tying a Trico spent Spinner

A small Trico spent spinner with a neat mayfly tailing technique and a segmented moose mane hair body for a semi realistic effect.

Transitional Midge

A hatching midge with a little different quill body technique that gives a more three dimensional, transparent body effect.

Baetis Sparkle wing

A little comparadun Baetis, that not only works very well early, but just about the whole season. With a mixed wing and a quill body. Perfect in sizes 16-18.

Fly Tying Masterclass

The skating caddis

A quick medium sized adult caddis fly that skates high, creating a nice wake, making it a great little attractor, with an interesting segmented dubbing body technique.

Paraloop Griffiths

A little different play on a Griffiths gnat. A reverse paraloop hackle that gives a deeper presentation and doubles as a quick sight indicator.

Parachute Adams

One of the true classics that works just about everywhere. This one tied with a calf body hair post, two hackles, one brown and one grizzle along with an unusual dubbing technique for a fine segmented body.

Floating mayfly nymph

A floating CDC mayfly nymph that will fish as an emerger with the tail and abdomen under the surface, the thorax being held high with the CDC bubble wing case. Change the colour and hook size to match your hatch.
