S.C.Ant (Queen & Male)

Description: S.C. = Slough Creek. Without this fly, your catch will be SCANT!! I can't emphasize my experience at Slough that I came across the sudden & huge Flying Ant Mating swarm (click for my old post)!! Scene of swarming insects and gulping trout was unbelievable but I was not ready for this sudden event and was totally knocked out......Yet I quickly developed new patterns (both queen and male) and head back to the creek. Then I was lucky enough to encounter the SWARM again and I solved the puzzle with these (click for how I did).

Let's see Queen first from side,


and bottom.

Here's how it looks on my fingers,

And here's how the actual looks on my finger!!

Then males are almost like midges.

This is how it looks on my finger,

And this is how the actual looks on my finger!!

Look at this violent Cutbow who gulped the Queen!!!

Price: $2.25 each. 
Size: Queen = size 10 and 12
         Male = size 20, 22, and 24

Pheasant Tail Mayfly Cripple

Description: Since I tie too many COYOTEs, I have lots of pheasant tails at my bench. I was thinking of a reason to reduce my inventory and that was when I came up with this fly...........just kidding.
Pheasant tail fibers are such nice & attractive looking for all kinds of fly patterns. Here, my concept is to create a "cross-dresser". Especially at three famous spring creeks here in Livingston, we all love mayfly hatches. There are several species and hatching activities to be debated all the time. This fly does it all!! Furthermore, by simply changing sizes and colors, this pattern can be any kinds of mayflies!! See the size-&-color chart at the end for your orders.

Here's baetis,

and PMD with black wing.

It's been proven even by the most selective trout at DePuy's. Here area a brown

and a fine rainbow!!

This is a specific match-the-hatch fly, so I give you a general guide line here.
Calibaetis = size 14, 16, & 18 in tan.
Epeorus & Heptagenia = size 14 & 16 in light olive.
PMD = size 16 & 18 in light olive
Baetis = size 20, 22, & 24 in dark olive
Trico = size 20 & 22 in rusty dun
Sulpher = size 18 & 20 in cream/light cahill

Got it?
So specify your needs and price is $2.25 each. Flies will be packed in a little containers or boxes.

Midge Larva Assortment

Description: Midge larva can be trout snack any time if not all the time. Plenty of patterns have been created and tested. Each pattern can be deadly and have a spot or two in our fly boxes. I picked up 10 patterns out of this book, which pretty much serves like an encyclopedia, and would like to offer you in a special price.
Included are;
Disco Midge

Flashbou Larva Pearl

Flashbou Larva Red

Forgotten Midge

Micro Management

Miracle Midge

Miracle Midge-Beadhead

Thread Body Larva-Cream

Thread Body Larva-Red

Peacock & Yellow Larva Style (soft-hackle)

Price: $15 per set (of 10 patterns above)
Size: all in 20 or 22 (mix-up available. We will discuss upon orders.)
Flies will be packed in a small plastic box.


Description: This is articulated with the stinger-hook style. It simply gives great pulse and silhouette while stripping. It has been the BIG FISH Producer for me. Gamakatsu Octopus hook in the rear nails trout mouths. Compared to factory-tied ones sold in shops, I go large on purpose. All of my ties are 4-inch LONG, just to target big players.

This is the original in tan/olive.




and Olive.

Here are proof pics. 21-inch Giant Whitefish from Yellowstone River!!

My recent catch from Madison.

And I guided a president of fishing product company into a nice brown on Yellowstone!
Price: $4.00 each
I don't cut off the front hook as it's a super strong salt-water hook. One can saw off after purchase if you wish. Even if you don't, it's not illegal to fish in most rivers.

Gray Drake Essentials

Description: Gray Drake is one of the most important and enjoyable hatches in Yellowstone Park waters. This large mayfly does move large trout at Madison, Gibbon, Slough, etc. Here are 4 essentials for your boxes!! All in size 12 and that's all you need.

Sparkle Dun: This Yellowstone classic is still the best.

Gray Drake Cripple: Very visible and imitates impaired, crippled, fluttering, and emerging duns.

Gray Drake Foam Dun: I modified the commercial extended body pattern into much slender and less bushy appearance. This should suit much better at spring-creek like sections of Park waters.

Gray Drake Foam Nymph: Tied ugly and shaggy on purpose, this imitates emerging nymphs to the surface film. This is suggested to fish behind either one of above flies.

Here are a few out of many nice trout caught during Gray Drake hatch this summer.

Size: 12 is all you need.
Price: $2.25 each.

NEWS: COYOTE Featured in Magazine

Folks, here's another news to share. After all, since I'm trying to sell my products to other people, I have to convince anyone that I'm good at and proud of my creation. My COYOTE made to North West Fly Fishing Nov/Dec issue. Fly must be my own tie that I sent in. It won't hurt to keep one or two in your fly box.

In my main blog, there's a permanent page on the top right. There you can read entire article in scanned pictures.
Since the material list is there, you can sure try yourself. Then if you need some advise and detailed tying instructions, just ask me!!

BHB Soft-Hackle Ray Charles

BHB stands for "Big-Horn" & "Hot-Bead".
Description: A simple Ray Charles in pink far more out-fished my own Royal Ray Charles. I hang up both of my arms and surrender. There really doesn't exist scud in pink but somehow it works in Bighorn. And then there are some more effective scud patterns for Bighorn so I combined them all. I combined a fire-bead pattern, soft-hackle sow-bug pattern, and Ray Charles.

This 18-incher was some of the best during the week among all of us, caught on a pink scud.

I also tie in a natural sow-bug color.

Price: $2.25 each. Flies will be packed in a little container.
Size: 16 & 18.
Color: pink, olive, & gray. Then again for Bighorn, pink is somehow the best.
