Flies of 2011

These are some of the flies that I have been using this season.

Sulphur nymph with a weaved body (size 18 - 16) - Will put a step-by-step tying guide up for this fly.

Deer hair caddis (size 16-14), this has been the top dry fly for me. Good for dropping a nymph off, but still bring them to the surface.

CDC Caddis (size 14) - An unsinkable fly and has the perfect profile from the side and from below. This is a copy of the one tied by Oliver Edwards, but with a turkey feather wing instead of the sticky tape that Oliver used.

BWO emerger with a weaved body (size 16 -20) - CDC will hold anything up and the weaving produces that two tone body that nymphs have.
