Ultra Violet Nymph Fly Tying Video

Based on nymphs from Czech fly tiers, the Ultra Violet Nymph is a very effective fly fished in the European or American styles of nymphing. It is also very effective fished as a dropper from a dry fly. This pattern works well to imitate mayfly nymphs as they rise through the water column on their way to the surface.

Hans’ Hopper Fly Tying Video

There are many great hopper patterns out there. This pattern combines bits and pieces of several hopper patterns, with a couple of unique twists.

As with most foam patterns, this hopper floats well. The accents of uv ice dub, cdc, and web wing add a few new triggers.

This is a great all around summer attractor or hopper imitation. This color scheme has been a great all purpose color for me. The Chernobyl Ant seems to imitate a variety of big terrestrial insects- hoppers, crickets, flying ants, and big beetles. I tie the Chernobyl Ant in sizes in sizes 8-14.

Engle’s Sunken Trico Fly

Engle’s Sunken Trico Fly is is an excellent and unique pattern. The pattern is featured in Ed Engle’s book Tying Small Flies. Ed developed this fly while fishing trico hatches in Colorado.

Fishing a sunken spinner at the tail end of a trico spinner fall will extend the hatch. Trout continue to feed on the spinners as they become water logged and begin to sink. Excellent when fished as a dropper under a dry fly.

CDC Emerging Mayfly Nymph

This has been a very successful pattern for imitating emerging late summer yellow mayflies, especially pale evening duns. It has fooled many selective fish on our tailwater. The body and thorax are made of CDC. This pattern can be tied in various color schemes to imitate different mayfly species. It can also be tied on a curved emerger style hook.
