Squimp http://globalflyfisher.com/video/squimp
See video in full resolution

Some of the best patterns to fish are those that use simple materials and are easier to tie, thus defining the "Squimp!" A combination squid and shrimp with excellent movement in the water, this pattern is a favorite for many saltwater fly fisherman and becoming a staple in my saltwater fly box. The best part is that the fly can be easily varied by modifying the materials and/or colors, thus making it a favorite for those creative at the vise, too. My final tip is that this fly can also be altered to resemble a crayfish, thus giving freshwater fly fisherman some additional ideas.

Don't tie flies http://globalflyfisher.com/tiebetter/beginning-fly-tying/pic.php?id=11763#40908 Martin, I have been tying flies for about 40 years now. I got started when I bought a box at an auction for $5.00 dollars. It was full of feathers tools and other stuff. The vise was a Herters and after a few years I replaced it with a better vise. I would imagine that I have spent several hundereds of dollars on stuff and it has been a great hobby. I am mainly a warmwater fisherman but I tie flies of all types just because I like to tie. I have given away most of them and you are correct that it is a hobby that cost money. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I still buy flies becuase I want to see how they are tied. Your article hits the spot.

Don't tie flies http://globalflyfisher.com/tiebetter/beginning-fly-tying/index.php#40904 I think a few other good patterns to try are elk hair caddis, compara dun and x caddis, wulffs are good too. These require hair and not much hackle and they are fairly economical to make. Picking simple flies like wooly buggers teaches you skills and how to work with materials. I also would avoid fashion flies with hot materials or foam and glue starting out. Focus instead on skills and learning. Makes 6s or dozens of all. Cheap tools are better than no tools and crap is still crap. The very best bang for the buck of vises is the Danvise. I tie on a Regal as I hate ***ckin' little set screws and bitty levers that don't lock hooks. Most of the rotatory functions are worthless. I've owned several and never use the rotatory stuff, then again, my first premium vise was an HMH, I still have 30 years.

Mart's Peccary Paraloop Emerger http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/peccary-paraloop-emerger/index.php#40857 Martin Thanks for pointing me to Eflytyer.com. Reading more on peccary, I think this material will lend itself well to even more patterns. Hugh Being relatively new to fly tying, I still have to try quite a few materials, moose mane being one of them. I did read about it briefly in some resource books but you lent perspective with your recommendation and suggestion for achieving that segmented look. I have already ordered some (as well as peccary) and will let you know how it works out. Thanks. Val

Mart's Peccary Paraloop Emerger http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/peccary-paraloop-emerger/index.php#40847 I have not seen peccary in the flyshops or online here in the USA. Do you know of a source, or better yet, is there a good substitute material?

]]>
Mart's Peccary Paraloop Emerger http://globalflyfisher.com/patterns/peccary-paraloop-emerger/index.php#40850 Val, Peccary may well have particular attributes which make it preferable to Martin (the light & dark patches for instance), but experiencing the same supply problem I have used moose mane. If you tie in both a dark and light hairs, the moose mane does result in good segmentation.

Used bodkin to make the 2mm sticky back crafting foam body. Size 8 hook. Black synthetic fur for the body. Black and white pre-packaged feather. I'm just barely beginning to learn how to tie flies.

Mediterranean brown trout http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=a0212842466d
Photographer: Gioiello75 ]]>
The "Sleek" fly is built on a bait hook size 8. The three barbs were mashed down. I used the fibers from the bottom of two discarded feathers to form the tail and under wing. A Guinea purple feather was palmered forward to form the body. A size small copper wire was used for the rib. I used a pinch of medium Coastal Deer hair as a upper wing giving the fly some flare. It is a wet fly that swims beautifully. The fly sits on a piece of drift wood that resembles a bull's head. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=16cc38209fd8

This fly is built on a micro clear plastic tube. It measures 5/8" or 15mm long. The Beetles are floating on the water in great numbers this time of year. I was just sitting at my bench one rainy day and started to tie. This beetle was tied as a result. The next day I fished it and the Bass loved it. It became a very good producer. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=c74e89fa8a99
