Current Fly Rig

The Big Thompson is flowing fast and hard.  The color of mud, chocolate.
Big flies to carry big loads.


Stimulator, my all time goto fly as well as my favorite fly overall. Able to carry large droppers, leap tall buildings...oh sorry wrong story.  I just love this bug.

Kauffmans Stone Fly. Easy to tie and really very realistic stone fly imitation.  I love to use this pretty much all summer as well as now, in early to mid spring.

A cool cased or emerger caddis.  Also easy to and trout just love the darn things.

Happy hunting.

  5. yeah I was looking at it and I figured you can never have too many emergers! Thanks for following up on my question. Is it a glass or brass? I have a ton of glass ones that should work perfet

  6. I also make a version with either green or black glass beads. I recently found some Montana Fly Tying beads in sparkle green(brass) that I really am excited about. Bought some blue ones as well to tie with Craven's Poison Tongue. Really love that fly. Who would have thought trout like blue jewelry!
