I am pleased to be able to tell you guys about a few new patterns coming to you next spring. Building on my Slim Shady pattern, I've added tungsten beads to them as well as a split back pattern. I've even put the two together and have a tungsten split back pattern. Perfect as a dropper of a chubby! These patterns should be available to you next spring, ready for the BWO hatches. Also included for 2019 is my Money Midge pattern in light brown and red. If you like a little bling on your pattern, make sure to get the Flashy Money Midge! Both patterns have worked wonders on the South Platte River, the perfect testing grounds.
It's been a while and since tons of people have asked, I've released a new tying video on how to tie my pattern, The Slim Shady 5.0. While this isn't a drastically new way to tie a fly, I have been using a material I call "Slim Rib". A ribbing material that is smaller than anything currently out there. I am not limiting it to just the Slim Shady though. Other patterns use it currently and I'll show more of those in the future. But for now, enjoy the video and if you tie some up and fish with them, I'd like to see the results.
Thanks as always for following the blog.
I will be in Denver this weekend at The Fly Fishing Show and would love to be able to chat with all the fishy people out there about flies, fishing and food. I'll have some of my secret "Slim Rib" material available for sale there too. Bring $5.00 cash and I'll trade you and show you how I use it for different flies. Hope to see you there!
