Fly Tying: Fergus MOAL Tutorial from OFFB

Great tutorial on construction of the Fergus MOAL Steelhead Pattern. I have highlighted this pattern before. My son recently tied up some of these (with Waddington Shank).(OFFB)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Fly Tying: Possie Bugger (What Is This?)

Possie Bugger (OFFB)

What is this pattern? It is normally tied in a size 8-10 or so. What could it be used for? It is highly thought of on special Oregon rivers. Caddis, Big Mayfly, Stonefly, Stillwater Dragon? The name must be an interesting story?

It must be a pretty good fly if worthy of a drawing by Jeff Kennedy

Fly Tying: March Brown Flymph, Nymphs & Duns

March Brown Wet~SB

March Brown Waters

The above pattern is little more than a Pheasant Tail Nymph (normally a swimmer nymph), but it is a bit stouter and has no wingcase…the March Brown nymph is a clinger nymph (stout and flat to hold in the substrates). The Gold Ribbed Hares Ear in tan to dark tan is a good clinger nymph.

Yes, I know..most don’t nymph for the March Brown hatch. No, the early season rise to a dry is the preferred way for most fly fishers (preferred for most hatches).

OFFB (Can You Feel The Energy??)

fry pan toss

Winter is on the wane. Runoff is evident and anticipation is heightened. No where is this more evident than at the OFFB, where the advance assault is afoot and the photo’s depict the energy after a bundled up Winter.  If you check out the OFFB site, see if you don’t agree that you feel the energy. The pictures are not static; they seem alive and energizing….come on Rip Van Winkle..get out there and watch the high water.

March Brown’s Are Coming (How To Tie from OFFB)

The tutorial is slightly different than Matt’s beautiful pattern, but they would both be great. Think of, if water levels allow, drifting the Willamette from Armitage to Harrisburg and finessing these enticing wet/emergers for Cutts.
