Similar to the Willy's UV Cray from two weeks ago but significantly different as well.

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;

  • dia-riki 285 #10-6
  • anteni - flexi-floss & orange marabou
  • thin skin of your choice(lt olive fly spec used)
  • Squirrel stripped zonker color of choice.
  • Hen soft hackle(choice)
  • Medium wire or magic stretch
  • Lt olive dubbing or color of choice.

From Ben:

I have been fly fishing and tying flies for the past 15 years. From 2001 to 2005, I worked for the late Andre Puyans helping at his fly fishing seminars in Idaho. More recently, I'm a fly fishing instructor for Wilderness Unlimited and The Becoming an Outdoor Woman programs.

You can find me hanging around the tier's row at the west coast fly fishing shows and expos in the early spring. Bass fishing with a fly in the California Delta on hot summer nights for a double digit fish is the current goal.

This fly is great for the skinny damsel nymphs found in lakes in the Sierra Nevadas.

RECIPE:

  • Hook: Daiichi 1270 size 8
  • Thread: 8/0 Olive
  • Eyesl: Mono
  • Tail: Jay Fair brown/olive marabou
  • Body: Jay Fair brown/olive marabou ribbed with chartreuce flashabou
  • Thorax: Jay Fair brown/olive long shuck
  • Wingcase: olive magic shell
  • Legs: Jay Fair brown/ olive shuck - trimmed.
