At the Bench: Lance Egan’s Rainbow Warrior

One of my go-to flies this past year is Lance Egan’s Rainbow Warrior. For some reason, trout really love it. It’s bright, has an interesting thorax from a magical material, and has a red-thread body underneath some plastic material. And, it’s extremely rugged. As I’ve blogged before, Lance is on the national fly fishing team.

Fluorescent Orange Flies: They Work

One of the most effective colors in my fly tying arsenal is this: fluorescent orange. That color has worked wonders at the Farmington, Millers and Westfield East Branch rivers. I work with UTC thread to incorporate that color into some of my nymphs. Easy to do so. View this post on Instagram Orange did well

At the Bench: Caddis Larva

After hearing about some people at the Farmington who tightline bait, such as meal worms, I decided to play around at the tying bench. View this post on Instagram Will it hunt?
