Hans ties a Quill Body CDC Adult Midge in this video. This is one of our favorite midge dry fly patterns, and works especially well in the late winter and early spring months. Vary the colors as needed to suit your local fish!
Classic soft hackles are fun to tie, and they catch a ton of fish! Hans ties a Partridge & Hare Soft Hackle in this video. This fly is a killer dropper off of a dry fly or swung during a caddis hatch!
