My friend Holly Finn thought we should name this pattern Bat Girl, and I thought that was a cool name. Superheroes like to fish to right? Blue is the new black, and we've experienced a ton of success with the metallic blue bead over the last several years. Blue has also been an effective color for us. This pattern uses a synthetic quill that is clear and takes on the color of the thread used underneath. That makes the possibilities endless, and believe me when I say explore those possibilities because this pattern will work in all kinds of different...

The Purple Haze is a fly created by Andy Carlson over 15 years ago.  It is similar to a Parachute Adams, and can be used as an attractor pattern or mayfly imitation just like the Adams can.  Traditionally the Purple Haze is tied with Super Floss rather than a dubbed body.  We have taken the liberty of making some changes to the pattern that fit more artistic style, and have consistently brought fish to the net over the years.  The Purple Haze has quickly become many anglers go to pattern, and one of the most prolific patterns in the western...

The Last Chance Cripple pattern was designed by famed angler and tier Rene Harrop.  The pattern was designed to fish for picky fish on spring creeks and the Railroad Ranch on the Henry's Fork.  This pattern incorporates a CDC wing that imitates a crippled bug trapping air bubbles, making the insect look vulnerable, and an easy target.

Winter means that Midge patterns are king.  Josh Williams is the creator of this pattern.  What we like about this pattern is its simplicity, effectiveness, and it is just a flat out versatile pattern.  Originally this pattern is tied in purple, pink, and orange.  We like this pattern in black and olive as well.  This pattern is tied in sizes 14-20 and because of the material for the wing is easier to see.  Make sure you have a variety of sizes and colors of this pattern in your box during the winter season.
