DESCRIPTION: In the late (fall) and early (spring) fishing at spring creeks in Livingston, spawners and followers munch on eggs and anything tasty. Especially when insect hatch is sparse, scud and sowbug are very important. Problems to me have been: soft-egg and regular Ray Charles variations are easy to be chewed off because I fish a lot and catch tons!! I needed to reinforce. During the process, I ended up combining "scud" + "egg" = "SCEGG" (su-kegg). It's been taken as scud. sowbug, and/or egg. It works even after spawning phases are over.

Need I say more??

DESCRIPTION: An innovative material from Montana Fly Co, Henry's Fork Hackle Ultra Light has become staple at my tying bench and been helping me design wonderful flies!! This is one of those patterns. Even pickiest trout in Livingston's spring creeks can't resist "one-two punch" of two CDC colors!! This can be fished "on the film", "in the film", and "beneath the film"!!

DESCRIPTION: Another homework from my hunting couple friends. This time I was given a big patch of moose hide. As of now ideas to incorporate to streamers and nymphs have not been done yet. However, little cousin was born and it's been picking up trout during midge hatches at Yellowstone River and DePuy's Spring Creek. I'd like to call this emerger/adult. Tying video has already been shot. It will soon be posted at my YouTube channel.
I seem to have a life-time supply.........

DESCRIPTION: Long awaited (!?) secret pattern of mine is finally here. Trust me, there's not many snail patterns in public (Google it!!). However, my stomach pumping always collect snails. This was my answer and result has been way beyond my expectation. For more detailed stories, order a Tying Instruction along with flies or wait for my YouTube update.

DESCRIPTION: I came up with this patter several seasons ago. The more I tie large soft-hackles with pheasant feathers, the more I tie this as well..........It's been proven its effectiveness. It should be considered as one of arsenals during any mayfly hatches at spring creeks. It can be fished as a dry-fly, half-sunken emerger, or ascending nymph/emerger. By simply adjusting size and color, this will imitate pretty much any mayfly species.
This is why it's named so.......
