The Green Yarn Mullet Fly. Few flies are as easy to tie, provided you can get a hold of the special yarn used. Martin found the material for this fly in his wife's knitting scraps.
A true treasure trove
One material caddis
: It will form legs, wing, body and the perfect silhouette of a caddis. It's a great floater and superb for fast water or as an indicator tied on above a seductive nymph.

See how to tie it in Steve Schweitzer's article
: Again a 'classic' Danish fly. Actually only uses one significant material: a piece of mylar tubing. Body can be covered with yarn or floss to add color. A really good fly for cold or unclear water. Fish deep and slow in the winter.
