Field Report – Rowley Stone in Central PA

Since posting the fly tying video of the Rowley Stone we’ve received tons of positive feedback from many anglers across the country.

Colby Welshans recently reported form Mill Hall, PA on his recent success using the Rowley Stone:

“Finally got out on the water today with the warm up happening in Central PA.. water was good and the Rowley Stone produced a hefty brown!  Took a few pictures to share with you.  Glad I stumbled across the pattern… knew it would be killer out here.  Thanks again!”

Iced Caddis Pupa Fly Tying Video

Learn to tie a super effective caddis pupa fly pattern. When caddis are active it is often times hard to get trout to notice anything else. Every angler should have a good selection of caddis imitations on hand whenever hitting the water. This is hand down one of the best pupa imitations out there.

The Provo River here in Utah has some amazing caddis action from late spring to late fall. There are many afternoons that the fish are closed mouth to most everything besides caddis imitations. Caddis pupa are a valuable food source for trout, and they love to key on them when they are active in the water column. Check out this pattern and fill your box, it will more than likely come in hand sometime in the near future if you plan on fishing much at all this year.
