The Salvation Ant is a sunken ant pattern tied to fish below the surface.  Ants are one of the most prolific food sources during the warmer months with an over abundance of them scattered along any stream, river bed, in the trees, or bushes falling into the water.  Because of that they are an extremely effective bug to fish.  Not every ant will remain on the surface until eaten though, and many will become submersed in the water dropping into the fishes feeding zone.  This makes a sunken ant pattern a must have in every anglers box.  This one is...

This pattern can be tied in a multitude of colors and differing sizes.  With how fast they are to tie, how well they catch fish, and the variety of colors and sizes to tie they are a must have in anyone's fly box.  This pattern can be fished deadly on a dead drift, swing and retrieve twitch, jig action, under an indicator, or with a nymph rod and tight line technique.  You better make sure you have some of these in your box tied up in sizes from size 8 to size 12, or 14 if you're feeling really adventurous. ...

Today we are doing our spin on a timeless classic the Guides Hares Ear Soft Hackle Nymph.  This pattern is a must have in most fly fishing guides boxes.  It is both quick and easy to tie, but also durable, and deadly effective.  These are some very important things to look at when choosing what pattern to tie.  With the materials substitutions we make here the possibilities become endless to your imagination.  This pattern can be fished anywhere you would fish a hares ear nymph, and can be tied unweighted as well.  We would love to see what you tie....

With this pattern we look to the wire wrapping technique inspired by Barry Ord Clark.  This technique allows you to wrap your wire body without losing the symmetrical form of the hook, and body of your fly.  We believe it also simplifies the process of tying, and adds to the aesthetics of this fly.  although the aesthetics of how it looks may not impact how effectively they bring fish to the net, as a tier I try to tie flies that also look good.  This pattern is simple in only using a couple of materials, making it a quick tie. ...

This pattern has been a go to for us this year.  The fish have especially loved the metallic colored beads paired with the shiny body of this fly and the fish can't resist.  We have combined a few different patterns into one with this one.  Perdigon style flies are becoming all the rage, and they flat out catch a lot of fish.  For us though there is nothing like a soft hackle nymph pattern.  combine the two of them, and you have an extremely beautiful fly along with one that is extremely effective.  This is a great addition to our...
