Salty Monday - Big Jack Crevalle off the S.U.P.

Captain Brian Vaughn of Off the Hook Charters, Inc. off of Hilton Head Island with a big Jack Crevalle on the fly.  Nice footwork!  Certainly somebody we want to go fishing with as soon as we can!  Check him out at and get a load of some of his artwork at  Good stuff Brian!

One Of My Favorite Streamer Patterns

This is a great little pattern tied here by Ryan Gabert of Dakota Angler & Outfitter.  I've used this pattern, or one very similar, quite a bit in recent years as I've thrown more and more "small" streamers.  In my opinion a size 6 streamer with catch more fish than an articulated pair of size 2s and you'll still get a look from the bruisers!

Foam Caddis

Great use of foam for a segmented body....  These techniques may very well work for most any dry fly pattern that has a little bulk (stonefly, etc.).  Can't wait to try a few out on the Big Hole in June!

Yes... He ate the fly...

This fella is a goofball and I love it.  I'm sure he's a Springboks fan, and who wouldn't be?  Neat little fly, but I may stick with the 8/0 uni thread, even though it might not be as "lacquer".  Enjoy!
