Pintar PT Nymph

It’s a jig-style pattern, so it’ll ride up-side-down, and therefore not snagging on the bottom that much. Next to the “Simon Templer nymph” and “La Bomba” it has become my go-to fly for fast water. It’s a real killer! The CDC gives this fly something special under water.

Also try some more color variations. Same fly, but with an olive abdomen has given me great results for grayling. You can fish it in a team of flies, as a point fly or middle dropper, but you can also fish it as a single fly. In Slovenia you have this fly as a single, because it is not allowed to fish with multiple flies.

I’ve fished this fly mainly in a French/Czech nymphing setup, but you can also fish it the old fashion way, on a dead upstream drift.

Daddy Longlegs (cranefly)

Spring and autumn are typically times when the Daddy Longlegs (or cranefly) start coming out. These larvae live on land (although there are some aquatic subspecies), but adult cranefly are bad fliers ofter fly near lakes and get blown into the water. Therefore they are an easy target for a lot of trout.

El Zorro Loco

A couple of weeks and we’ll be fishing the Yucatán flats again. We hope to encounter a lot of bonefish, tarpon and perhaps one or two permit. In preparation for this trip we’re tying a lot of tropic flies. This week I tie the “El Zorro Loco” or, the crazy fox. A crazy charlie with a fox wing. I’ve used mirage flash as an underbody, this way the body gets a bit of sparkle when you wrap the bodyglass over it. Just like a lot of shrimps have. It gives a real life like impression. Give this one a try!

Brian's Popper

A quick and easy to tie Popper when you need large quantaties, fast. Everybody loves poppers, fisherman and fish alike. There is no equal for the sight of a predator slamming a popper in the surface. It’s not always easy to get a fish to take one but when they’re at it you’ll be sorry if you don’t have any ones laying around. For materials visit our website.
