Purple Rockfish Candy Fly Tying Video

The Purple Rockfish Candy is another Pacific Saltwater fly inspired by the Bob Popovics' Surf Candy fly style. Our Pacific Bottom-fish, including Black Rockfish, have teeth and a chomping ability that can wreak havoc with our flies.
The use of Fishient Fish Scale synthetic material makes it relatively straightforward to create a slim, shimmery baitfish profile with this fly. I prefer Tack Free Cure Goo versus Thick, because I like a very slim profile fly. This color combination is but one of several I have fished successfully for Black Rockfish off Oregon. This is a relatively subtle color combination and the fly is relatively long.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
