E-Z Buzzer (Epoxy Buzzer)

Here is a quick, bomb-proof, easy to tie buzzer (chrinomid) pattern with great segmentation that can be tied in whatever colour or size you so desire to match the buzzers/chironomids to the waters you fish.

Hot Spot Cased Caddis

A great buggy looking point fly for river's that host 'mothers day caddis' hatches. Very effective at high water, due to it's tungsten bead/lead weight giving it a quick decent. Tying on a good jig hook allows the fly to ride point up, not only maintaining it's sharp hook point, but also reducing the ammount of snags you'll encounter phenomenally!

Here is a down-sized "buck bug" variant that has been very productive for site-fishing to feeding cutthroat in the salt'. There's just something about the colour yellow and cutthroat trout dry flies.
