Nalle Puh (Winnie the Pooh Fly). Popular dry fly from Finland. I used black bear for the divided wings, hares mask for the dubbing and @whitingfarms ginger saddle hackle. Tied on a @moonlitflyfishing ML052
The Classy Caddis is the newest pattern available in the Blue Lines shop. Link in bio as always!
We love the Classy Caddis because it looks like the caddis we see here on the Front Range. The triple wrap of gold wire at the hook bend adds subtle flash and the elk hair wing provides a great looking profile as seen from below.
-<- INTRODUCING THE FLY GEEK 6-PACK ->- I get lots of requests for assortments for local water or specific quarry. Outside of the flies I offer on my website, I've been wanting to put together some limited-edition, smaller assortments themed around a specific area or type of fishing. These are fun for me as they let me stretch my legs a bit artistically and play with some new colors, flies, and variations that I wouldn't otherwise.
The inaugural 6-Pack is the Hill Country Half-Dz features six of my favorites that will cover the vast majority of the fishing we have in the Texas Hill Country.
Price: $30 and includes:
Lunch Money, Shad, Size 4
Brunch Money, Sculpin Olive, Size 8
Foxy Shimmer Clouser, Size 8
Carp-It Bomb, Copper Chrome, Size 10
Carp-It Bomb, Olive/Orange, Size 6
Sparkle Rio Getter, Black, Size 12
Fly Geek Logo Box
Mini Lunch Money Sticker
These will be available TOMORROW in-person, during my tying demo at FILSON AUSTIN from 11 AM - 4 PM. If I have any remaining, they'll be offered for sale on my website later this weekend.
Thanks for the support and I look forward to offering a lot more of these in the near future.
