One more day until fly tying madness! Yes… It’s Hump Day…. There will be a Hump Day Video on the blog and you’ll be thinking about Fly Tying Night! Since it’s March… Warming up…. And the Missouri is on fire… Let’s do… Missouri Bugs!
Some of my best memories of the Missouri are in March…. Some amazing dry fly days in the Canyon…. Big dumb browns sitting inches from the bank chowing like machines…. I just got goose bumps! Some Marches are better than others with BWO’s and I’m always hopeful that it will be better than the last. The last two years it seems to be more of a midge game on top. This year probably the same… But one can dream? Anyways… back to Tying Night!
Lets focus on Midges, BWO’s and other patterns that are catching fish. Midge adults, emergers, nymphs and clusters. BWO nymphs are effective….. All other BWO stages are great if they are hatching. Fire beads, Pinks, Worms and other secret little stuff are great nymphs to think about. Streamers? Coffey’s, PCL and Clousabous are the ticket.
There will be a few new tiers at our Tying Night so I will probably be focusing my efforts to help them get started and get them comfortable tying some patterns. I’m thinking I will be tying San Juan Worms and some midge patterns. Simple to tie and rail fish pretty much everywhere!
I’m excited for this one! A couple of new tiers…. Missouri River Bugs… It’s March…… The doors open at 6:00 and were tying bugs till were done!
