This is the first of a series of fly tying tutorials I will be posting. This streamer is deadly for smallmouth bass in moving water. If you try out this fly for yourself, please let me know in the comments how it worked for you. As always, any comments with tips and/or recommendations are much appreciated. Please Subscribe if you want to see more fly tying videos and quality fishing content. Thanks for watching!

… 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.
