Easter Fly Tying

Some hatches that have popped off the vice recently:

“Red Hot Chili Bomber”

Red Hot Chili Bomber

Hook: #16 dry
Thread: 6/0 red UNI
Tail: Moose body hair
Body: Tying thread
Wing: White deer hair or calf tail, tied ausable bomber style
Hackle: Grizzly

A (big) Ausable Bomber variation tied for small stream brook trout.


Greedo BWO

Hook:#18-22 nymph
Thread: Olive 6/0 UNI
Bead: 5/32 gold brass
Tail: Brown duck flank fibers, hen hackle fibers, pheasant tail fibers, or whatever else you have laying around
Abdomen: Olive Micro Tubing
Thorax: Olive hare’s ear dubbing
Wing bud: Brown goose biot

I tied this one up to imitate the plentiful small BWO nymphs I have been seeing in my home waters. I think the micro tubing does a nice job of getting a segmented body.


Hook: #12-16
Bead: Gold brass
Thread: Olive */0 UNI
Tail: Two split brown goose biots
Abdomen: Olive Micro Tubing
Wingcase: Mottled brown turkey or hen quill slip
Thorax: Olive hare’s ear dubbing
Legs: Olive Micro Tubing

I have been playing around with micro tubing a lot lately. This nymph is basically a copper john with micro tubing instead of wire and some legs. I don’t have a name for this one yet. Any suggestions?

I haven’t had the chance to fish any of these flies yet, so tie some up and let me know how they do.

Have a happy and blessed Easter!
