Natural vs. Synthetics. Some fly tyers will likely favor one heavily over the other, but for my fishing and the flies I tie, I use both materials with about a nearly even split. While synthetic fibers can be great for certain styles of flies and certain water condition...

For many fly anglers, wintertime totally stinks.

It's cold, snowy, icy, and there might not even be any fishable water around. This can be a totally depressing scenario from a fishing perspective, but I can think of no better time of year to tie flies. You don't tie fl...

I'm a big streamer guy....always have been!

I can still remember the very first fly I tied. It was in the early 90's and I was no more than 12 years old. Since I don't think I had actually taken up fly fishing quite yet, I was equipped with absolutely NO fly tying materials or tools. Lucky for me, my mom came to...

With all of the streamer choices available today, the Clouser Minnow remains a top pick for myself and countless other fly anglers. Often referred to as "the fly angler's bucktail jig," it's simple construction and enticing action makes it both easy to tie and catch fi...

Most streamers that you'll see are tied on a standard hook with a straight shank. 

These hooks get the job done well and can be easily found at any fly shop. However, like many things in life, improvements can be made. Aside from sprucing up or modifying an existing fly...
