Riffle Drifters

Riffle Drifter are a style of perdigone that I tie for use in shallower riffles of just a few feet or less. I use a smaller bead and tie them in common caddis larva colors. I have been fishing these all summer as a dropper with them out performing the anchor fly. I now fish two of these at a time in contrasting colors. Expect many more colors coming.

Deschutes bound anglers should grab plenty of these. I match the exact size and color of many free living caddis species found in her waters. Anglers worldwide are also given the same advice.

When the “Platinum” level shops start calling me to fill their guides boxes with these jigs because a similar fly was “THE GO-TO” fly last year, you know it’s hot. I know it’s hot too. My logs are filled to the rim with this pattern. Get em while you can as supplies are limited.

Glam Rocker - Golden Olive

This is it! One of the single most effective patterns that I have ever fished. Despite a crappy 2018 season in the Roaring Fork valley, I still logged over a thousand fish with nearly 70% owed to this fly.

According to my daily angling logs, this fly was the best pattern going in my lineup since 2017.

A heavy, deep version of the Zika Midge. Pronounced segmentation is a strike trigger drawing in even the most bashful fish.

New sizes and color options available.

Hands down, this is the single most effective fly in my box. My logs are beginning to show exceptional numbers of fish that this fly has been producing this year. I have not had a day later when I cannot draw a fish to take. I try to use other patterns, but this one always gets put back on.

Knuckle Draggers

Knuckle Draggers sport extra long front legs for extra action. These are the most active flies I have ever fish. I swing them across the current using a wet fly swing when i am not picking up fish.

Fifth Element - Knuckle Draggers
3.95

My Top guide fly selection during the Yellow Sally and PMD’s during the 2019 summer season included these in the yellow.

Use a non slip loop knot and twitch this occasionally. Better yet…let this fly swing like a wet fly at the end of the drift. I have had astounding action on the swing with this fly.

Knuckle Dragger Golden Stone
3.95

Picked up by Fulling Mill as a signature pattern. You can still buy mine right here, tied by me.
This is one of my top three producing signature patterns.

From the time I detect the first Skwala to the late september Sabulosa stones I will be employing this pattern as my anchor fly when I am scouring the trenches. It pairs well with a bank maggot during run-off or with a small polish quill during other hatches. you get the idea. It get’s used a lot. These are also very durable, I have many intact that still reside in my box that I have left-over from last year that I am still using.

Newbury's Dirty Hipster
3.95

The original Dirty Hipster pattern with a bright spot for added allure and fish catching prowess. Reports are strong on how well this fly fishing in the mid-west and in Pennsylvania streams.

Available only as part of the foundation collection, go here to get one.

French Quills

Blondie

It has taken me a couple of years to finally get around to filling the empty bin these once occupied. Why not? A perfectly deadly fly with a lemon twist.

OG Krush Deluxe
3.95

The OG Krush Deluxe is a fly is also growing in cult status around the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado and beyond. This pattern is best during the spring and autumn when trout and other fish are spawning. I had remarkable success during the autumn 2017 and spring of 2018 with this pattern. Both pink and orange bead headed flies trigger an innate egg eating response in fish.

Sheila Possie Bugger
3.95

A very durable and deep sinking run-off buster.

Many autumn or spring days have started with this fly. Many Autumn or Spring days have also ended with this fly still attached after quality fishing. Comes with a trailer hitch incorporated into the tail to add a dropper fly.
