Clark "Cheech" Pierce:

Fly fishing best describes me. I can see it in any tying I do. To be more specific, fly tying is what most consumes me with this hobby/addiction that I have. Creating things that fool trout, bass, carp, etc, it what really gets me going. Looking a slimy swimmer in the eye and saying "hey, just fyi, that thing you just ate isn't real." I like that. I have a VERY understanding wife, and 2 wonderful kids (Girl-5, Boy-4) who will correct you if you call it a fishing pole... nuff said.

In addition, Cheech is a Rainy's innovator and just had an article published in Southwest Flyfishing on his pattern Cheech's Leech (pg 54). You can read more about Cheech and his fishing adventures at his blog Fly Fish Food.

  • Hook: TMC 100 #14 (or 8-20)
  • Thread: Red 70 denier
  • Tail: Fly Tyer's Dungeon shuck yarn (brown)
  • Body: Yellow floss
  • Humps: Rainy's evazote foam (camel)
  • Band: Red thread
  • Hackle: Brown saddle hackle
  • Wing: White poly yarn

{Give us a Stumble if you're up for it}

This fly is available as an HD Download.

Willy discovered his passion for fly fishing at the early age of six. Shortly thereafter, he began tying his own flies for trout, salmon steelhead, and shad. Willy found his love of lake fishing early and has continued to fish stillwaters, becoming known far and wide for his expertise and knowledge. He has fished all over northern California, Idaho, and Montana. From famous blue ribbon trout rivers to high mountain lakes and reservoirs, from farm ponds to the big lakes, Willy has guided for over twenty years in Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Willy has continued to develop his fly tying skills and is currently a signature tyer for Brookside Flies out of Denver, Co. He is the Assistant Manager of Montana Troutfitters of Bozeman. He uses any number of Echo fly rods to ply his craft, including our spey and switch rods and is currently working on the new design of Airflo fly lines for special presentation on lakes. Spey casting may be a new approach for lake fishermen in the US, but in Europe it is a common practice allowing for long distant casts from the shoreline.

RECIPE:

  • Hook: 1/0 Gamagatsu
  • Thread: 3/0 Mono cord
  • Body: Larva lace hollow body, color of choice
  • Head: Red mono 3/0
  • Gills: Flo Orange big fish thread
