Brown & Orange Waterpusher

The movement of the fly and the disturbance in the water is the key to trigger predators. A fly that pushes the water is the big effort in flies tied “Buford-style”. Originally invented by musky guide Brad Bohen, and is basically constructed with bucktail, a few saddle feathers and some flash. It has elements from several other fly types, like the Larry Dahlberg’s Diver, Bob Popovics’ reverse tie and hollow tie and even the good old Muddler Minnow. It is however a slightly different beast, mainly because of the rough look of adjusted - not trimmed - deer hair. In this video we have our Dr. Hook aka Søren Flarup behind the vice demonstrating his bid on a “pimped” Buford inspired fly, but mounted with a Waterpushing Disc from Paolo Pacchiarini for maximum disturbance and attraction for the biggest predators below the surface.

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.
