Regarding dry fly fishing, is there anything better than watching fish rise to giant flies?!?! For the next short while on rivers across the west Pteronarcys (also know as the Salmonfly) will be abundant in numbers sufficient to attract most fish to rise. This can be some of the funnest fishing all year long.
If you haven’t already filled your boxes tying large foam bugs for this occasion we’ve got you covered. We’ve teamed up with Rainy’s Flies to offer our friends here at Fly Tying 123 a great selection of premium Salmonfly dry flies. These are the highest quality flies on the market. Rainy’s only uses the best materials available, and with top designers from around the world these innovative patterns not only attract fish but last through the sharp teeth of many trout without falling apart.
We are selling them in packs of 3 to help keep our costs down. Then again, would you really want less than three of any pattern? When it happens to be the fly of choice I’m confident you’ll want more than just one in your fly box, incase of breakoffs, or maybe that you will begin feeling bad for your fishing buddy who is watching you crush fish on the only fly they seam to want to eat (sharing is optional ;-). By keeping our cost low we are able to essentially give you 3 flies for the price of 2. Originally these patterns retail for $2.99, but we are happy to be offering them for an exceptional price of $1.99 each. Visit our store for more info regarding sizes and availability.
Check out our fly selection here and check back as we will be adding new flies each week.
This is a fly fishing film that consists of the beauty of Alaska mixed with a lot of underwater footage of amazing salmon schools. Our flies pass by them, and often times they are seen peeling away to chase our presentations. It was fun to capture this on film! Alaska is a very special place for fly fishing. There is a broad myth that many of the salmon caught in Alaska are snagged. This has not been my experience during any of my three trips there.
I filmed this in 2014 when a few of my brothers and I took an Alaska fly fishing trip that had many memorable moments. It was a good salmon run that year for the chum and silver salmon. We hooked up with a few aggressive rainbows as well. All of which ate the Tungsten Embryo egg pattern.
One of my favorite accomplishments of the film was by my brother Brad. He had never been fly fishing before, and after only a few days he was casting like he’d been doing it for year. He is the guy in the film double hauling and throwing the tight loops.
I teamed up with Rainy’s Flies on this project. They have a great selection of flies for all species of salmon. They produce great quality flies that don’t fall apart. Check them out at http://www.rainysflies.com/
We visited our good friends the Butlers and caught many amazing fish each day. Alaska fishing has never been so much fun for me.

Have you ever wondered what it looks like underwater when a fish eats your fly? Some follow for a while curious but unwilling, while others attack the fly the moment it hits the water! Filming this video was insightful to say the least, and although fly fishing high mountain lakes may not always produce large fish, the excitement is second to none.
Did you notice the fly box in the video? If you haven’t checked out Tacky Fly Boxes you should! Learn more at http://tackyflyfishing.com/ I’m currently transitioning from foam slit fly boxes to the silicone slit Tacky boxes for the majority of my flies. This box will enhance your fly fishing experience!
Most of the fish caught in this video were taken on a fly called Mason’s Houdini. It is an articulated leech pattern that fish (not only trout) can’t resist. Check it out, and other awesome fly patterns at http://rainysflies.com/
