Blowtorch Tag Nymph

The Blowtorch is a variation on a pattern our Czech guide showed my Fly Fishing Team USA mates and I while fishing in the 2014 World Fly Fishing Championships. It was deadly in the Czech Republic and it has been deadly here in the USA as well. I generally fish it as the point fly on a two or three fly Euro nymphing or Czech nymphing rig but it would work just as well with a strike indictor rig.
In this tutorial you will learn how to tie this fly as well make a soft hackle nymph with oversized feathers.

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.
