CDC Extended Body Dun

This video features an extended body technique I came up with several years ago. It has worked quite well to imitate Baetis mayflies and PMDs. Change the color of the tubing for the species of mayfly you are imitating. It can also be used for a caddis or stonefly body.

Bottom Tickler Tungsten Jig Fly

The Bottom Tickler Tungsten Jig Fly is a Czech-Eastern European style jig fly. This color scheme of tungsten jig is tremendously effective.

Fish a larger heavier jig in faster or deeper water to get down faster.

This streamer is tied to imitate a minnow, but this fly can be tied in several colors.
