This video features the Body Quill Perdigon- A quick and easy perdigon pattern that has a subtle bit of flash. The body of the fly is made of Hends Body Quills, a thin translucent tinsel.

Black Hills fly fishing has been solid over the past couple weeks, and the snow that the upper elevations got has bumped the flows a bit. The weather this weekend looks to be great as well, and will make for some great fishing!
Rapid Creek above Pactola has come up a bit in flow, but will still fish well with nymphs. Bigger patterns will work better in the dirtier water – North Fork Specials, Jig Hare’s Ears, Mop Flies, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Rainbow Czech Nymphs, and worm patterns in size 10-14 will work well.
