Fly Tying: How to Tie EP Fibre Baitfish Patterns

Tying flies in preparation for a quick jaunt down to Tarponville in a few weeks has reminded me how much I love tying with EP Fibre (or “fiber”, for our friends south of the border!).  EP fibre, whether tied in a brush or loose strands, makes it super easy to create great baitfish patterns that offer great translucency.

EP minnows and baitfish can be tied in a variety of sizes and colours for all sorts of species from trout and salmon to GT’s and Tarpon.  The fly in this step-by-step is tied for Tarpon, but can easily be scaled down and fished for rainbows and bull trout. read more

VIDEO: YETI Presents -120 Days

This video is more than just a fly fishing video to me, it showcases the pure obsession behind it, along with some real-time guide frustration.  I have not listened to someone talk more passionately about their craft than David Mangum does in this video.  I have watched it a million times and still never gets old to me, so if you are out of things to do on this Friday night sit back and enjoy this!
