*Practice* 🤔🎣 • • Match the Hatch - “Flying Fish” Not a super practical fly, but I just wanted to try some new materials and ideas. Too “fuzzy” for me, but the concept is there. 🛫🐟 • • #gonnaneeda12wt #tieandrefine #flyingfish #practicemakesperfect #flytying #flyfishing #flytyingjunkie #saltwaterflyfishing #bluefintuna #tunaonthefly #matchthehatch #streamerjunkie #articulationnation #ericstackleshop #rdflyfishing #gamechangerfly #changeyourgame
Experimental Mole Crab / Sand Crab.....🦀🎣 • •Swipe ➡️ for more pics In between NOT catching Corbina, I’ve been playing with materials trying to tie a fast and hopefully effective Mole Crab/Sand Crab pattern. This is about a 5 min tie and feels like a soft shell crab. Hoping to get these wet soon and keep trying. • • #ishouldprobablyjustworkonpresentation #flytying #flyfishing #flytyingjunkie #flyfishthesurf #flyfishingaddict #saltwaterflyfishing #corbina #corbinapatrol #socalfishing #chuckingmuppets #ericstackleshop

Decided to try my hand at @rpopovics “Surf Candy” after being inspired by a few of my favorite tiers on IG. Waaaayyyyy better than when I tried them the first time. It was so bad, I had given up on them. 😂 Lots of hours behind the vise between attempts sure makes a difference! I’m gonna need some heavier hooks and resin! 😈🎣 • • • @andrewscustomflies @flyonby @smartflies @justinpribanic#practicemakesperfect #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #surfcandy #flyfishthesurf #saltwaterflyfishing #socalfishing @flyskinz @deercreekflies @gamakatsu.usa
110% sure I didn’t need to tie these, but “Beans” on the brain. 🤔🎣🧠 Handful of Surfin’ Merkins using Sculpting Flash Fiber in White and a little Copic touch up. • • #ishouldprobablyjustworkonpresentation #andprobablyuseonefly #imgoinginsane #obsessed #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishthesurf #corbina #flytyingjunkie #saltwaterflyfishing #corbinapatrol #flyfishingnation #ericstackleshop
“Match the Hatch” or trying to....😑 Tried a Ghost Shrimp 🦐 today, pretty frustrating tie, even though I set out to specifically tie it. New materials, new techniques, etc. Plus, they aren’t very “pretty” critters, and I like tying “pretty” flies. It will definitely get cleaner, but I don’t think these will ever be “pretty”, but hopefully they’re effective. After all, that’s really the result we are after, right? 🎣🦐 • • 3” Articulated Ghost Shrimp @harelinedubbin Chocklett’s GC Chenille @gamakatsu.usa B10S size 6 @flymenfishingco 25mm Fish Spine @senyogreg Wacko Hackle in Pearl Medium Dazl Eyes Clear Shrink Tubing Chenille Claws UV resin eyes Copics for color • #ghostshrimp #corbina #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishthesurf #saltwaterflyfishing #beanpatrol #flytyingjunkie #flyfishingnation #ericstackleshop
Large pink fly......any questions? 🎣 • • @rdflyfishing SF Fibers in Pink and Off White on a @gamakatsu.usa SL12S 3/0 and a @flyskinz Thin Finz in Large. Copic markers for final flavoring. FYI - Fibers in these colors have quite a bit less crinkle to them than the other colors, which makes life interesting. • • #lesskinkythaniexpected #probablyshouldnthaveusedthatfirsthashtag 😳 #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #streamerjunkie #sffibers #baitfish #baitfishfly #saltwaterflyfishing #bluewaterflyfishing #biggamefishing
Couple of big SF Baitfish in a Mackerel pattern on @gamakatsu.usa SL12S 4/0 for some offshore action. One using a @flyskinz Thin Finz in Large. Can’t decide on fin or no fin. 🤔Figured I’d try my hand at these after seeing @cb.kendrick baitfish ties. Appreciate the pointers Cory! 🎣 • • @rdflyfishing SF Fibers in Mackerel & White and hit with the Copics for a little color. • • #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flyfishingnation #offshoreflyfishing #biggameflyfishing #bluewaterfishing #baitfish #mackerel
My entry for the @douglasoutdoors contest. • One of my original ties and one of my favorites for the @douglasoutdoors contest. Baby Bluegill on a 2/0 Gamakatsu B10S. About 3” overall for the fall when the spring Bluegill fry are about snack size for Largemouth Bass. Fairly simple to tie. Ostrich Herl tail, @flymenfishingco Faux Bucktail for support, @epflies Sparkle Brush, Custom @rdflyfishing Sculpting Flash Fiber brush for bulk and to finish off the head, Peacock herl for color on top, and @mr_squimpish Fibers for the belly. The @douglasoutdoors contest just motivated me to tie some more up....fall is right around the corner. • Swipe for second pic. • #douglasoutdoors #flytying #flytyingjunkie #bassflies #largemouthbass #warmwaterflyfishing #blackshearsbabybluegill
Quick trip up North, mostly to relax....but I did get a few casts in. 🎣 Lots of little brookies and a few rainbows in the high country until we got chased out by a thunderstorm ⛈ (note to self: ALWAYS pack your rain shell and a change of clothes, even when it’s 90 degrees in August at the bottom of the mountain.....it really sucks hiking out soaking wet and freezing). • Stopped by the Owens on the way home with @reecesmomma and #shadowtheplott to see if I could find a few hopper eats....yup, found some. Thunder Thighs hopper did the trick, super windy but if we had more time, I’d have stayed all day and dealt with it (wind is no fun with a 3wt 😂🤷‍♂️). So much fun to see them blast the hopper as soon as it lands. • • • #yesiactuallyfishsometimes #flyfishing #flyfishingjunkie #hoppers #dryordie #scottflyrods #easternsierra #trout #rainbowtrout #brooktrout #troutfishing
Fun little pre-work sesh with @jh_camacho Joey picked up a nice one early, I had my shots but couldn’t convert. Fish everywhere though....water is probably 70 degrees, beautiful day.

Couple of 4” Finesse Changers inspired by one of my favorite tiers on IG @ammo_flies 🎣 Got a long way to go to get to that level but these were fun ties. 🐟 • • • #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #flyfishingnation #articulationnation #streamerjunkie #gamechangerfly #gamechanger #changeyourgame #saltwaterflyfishing #predatorflies #finessewrap #calicobass #yellowtail #bonito #tuna #chuckingmuppets #ericstackleshop #fishing
Maybe I should tie some nymphs instead....#obsessed with these @blanechocklettfishing #gamechangerfly variations! 😂 Spun up one to imitate some of my more successful lure colors. Gimme some ideas people!! 💡💡 • • • Custom SF Fiber Dubbing brush @flymenfishingco Fish Spines @deercreekflies Gator Eyes in Chameleon @epflies Crustaceous Brush to finish off the head. @gamakatsu.usa SC12S 2/0 & SC15S 1/0 • #somebodystopme #redundant #iforgotthedamnfins #gamechangerfly #gamechanger #calicobass #tunafly #yellowtail #saltwaterflyfishing #flytying #flyfishing #flytyingjunkie #custom #bassonthefly #flyfishingjunkie #streamerjunkie #articulationnation #chuckingmuppets #ericstackleshop #rdflyfishing #flyfishingnation #changeyourgame
Fanboy much? Why yes, yes I do. 🤷‍♂️ • Had to pick up a classic @scottflyrods F2 653/3 before the new F series replaced them. What a sweet little stick to add to the quiver, matched up with a @rossreels Colorado LT. I know of a tiny little creek nearby, that maybe.....just maybe, might have a few natives left in it. • • • #ithinkthisflyfishingthingisgettingoutofhand #scottflyrods #radian #meridian #f2 #flyrods #flyfishing #troutfishing #flyfishingjunkie #trout #bass #yellowtail #calicobass #carp #corbina #bonito #rossreels #coloradolt #saltwaterflyfishing #freshwaterflyfishing #flatsfishing #madeinamerica #handcrafted @tellurideoutside @tellurideonthefly
