Fall Special

A short fly tying video showing how to tie a Fall Special Nymph. This bead head fly is tied using a #16 nymph hook, but this simple pattern can be tied to match the hatch. I use the Fall Special just about all year, and especially August through October. I believe that this pattern looks like a drowned PMD Spinner or perhaps a struggling nymph. This fly will work best whenever you see brown or rusty spinners over the water. If you have ever considered fly fishing in the Colorado Rockies, this is your year. Recent years of low water have made the hatches bountiful and long lasting. The fish are bigger and stronger than you might think. Consider hiring me, Capt. Matt, to show you an incredible fly fishing experience from a boat when you travel to the Colorado Rockies this year. Go to for information and booking.

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.
