Fly Fishing: Anchor Flies (Big & Light)

Sometimes the anchor fly is heavy for short line dredging of a fast running slot. However, this short piece in the Harford Examiner by Alain Barthelemy suggests, in shallower runs, a big but lighter fly is in order.

Query both Greg Lowry (SwittersB) and Alain Barthelemy (net) re woven nymph techniques.

Fly Tying & Fishing the Bottom Roller (Anchor Fly)

Burk's Hare's Ear Bottom Roller (www.gbflycasters.org)

Via Colorado Fly Fishing Report to Front Range Angler a vid on the Bottom Roller Pattern. The heavily weighted ‘anchor fly’ provides the mean to sink one to three flies while dredging nymphs. This stems from competitions, in which no attached weights (like split shot) are allowed.

I like Czech Nymphs for Scud/Caddis like patterns. Could not embed the Andy Burk Bottom Roller vid.…but linked it and it gives good explanation on tying the anchor pattern.
