Tag Archives: Fly Tying

We had the chance to fish a private lake in Eastern Oregon yesterday for LM Bass and Bluegill.  To say it was good fishing would be a huge understatement!  The fishing was off the chart…  I have been working on a prototype for Umpqua for use as a baby bluegill pattern for LM Bass, I think I’v found it, it does need a couple of very minor adjustments, but it fishes so well even the bluegill eat it!!  Also note the use of my new pattern with Umpqua coming out in the 2015 catalog, “Hud’s Bushwacker”, this fly flat out hunts!  don’t be afraid to throw it into the thick stuff, it fished weedless very well.  We took several bass under cover by “driving” this fly down through the weeds into the strike zone with Rio’s Outbound type 3 and 6 sink lines..

Hud’s Indicator Damsel

Here is a video for a killer fly pattern for indicator fishing still waters!  Tie it on as your bottom fly, and make sure it’s tied with a no slip loop knot..  Hang as many bugs above it as you want, I usually just fish two, and depending on the hatch conditions they may be a nymph or a chironomid.

Tiger Muskie Bait!

Got a little time off coming up, thinking of heading up to Mayfield Lake in WA for a little Tiger Muskie action!!  At least that’s one possible option, being that it is the middle of October, (the best month of the year), there are only 1000 other options…  The hardest part is just making up your mind!

Whoa!!

Been busier than a one armed paper hanger tying flies..  Got a little steelheading in a couple of weeks ago, got down to the Big D and it looked like chocolate milk!  Fished anyway, and even managed to hook one…  Go figure hu!  Well last night I finished the flies for the Umpqua submission, they’r on the way to Colorado as I write..  Did some elk hunting last weekend, please note I said “hunting” not “killing”, as like most years in the past, I did not fill my tag.  Headed back down to the D for some more steehead action this weekend, hope to have a good report..  In the mean time, stay cool!
