Blumble Bee Fly
This is an easy yet deadly effective bumble bee pattern. There aren't a lot of these out there and this one gets the job done. It does take a little while to tie but its worth it in the end.

Twigg & Barry Foam Ant

Often early spring can see a fly ant emergence. Never be on the stillwaters in the spring without an ant pattern!

Here we tie a simple foam and dubbing pattern. It's a quick and easy tie, but don't forget the sighting post (here we've used orange poly) as you'll never see the fly again. Thanks for watching!

Foam Beetle

Twigg & Barry tie a simple foam beetle.
At different times on the year, depending on the elevation of the lake (or river) being fished, beetles will become prominent. On stillwaters, look for water with vegetation overhead, or in leeward bays as food will accumulate here on the surface.
