Epic day on the water getting a couple of buddies, @utahflyguy & @paulharimyoo into their first Pacific Bonito (I think it may have been Paul’s first saltwater fish 🤔) Had the opportunity to show Paul around part of our beautiful Channel Islands National Park, for the first time. Glad the “tiger tuna” came out to play today, and super thankful that we live where we do. #thestokeisreal 🎣🙌 • • #theydontfightliketrout #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #saltwaterflyfishing #channelislands #nationalpark #scottflyrods #anacapaisland #bonito #tuna #streamerjunkie #rangerboats #patagonia #patagoniaflyfishing
Hot Spot • Can’t tell if these are satisfying or frustrating yet. 🤷‍♂️ Definitely need to get more magnum sized hen saddles. Feather selection is way crucial, and I’m definitely having issues there. Love/hate relationship with the ‘ol learning curve. • • #cantfixitwithscissors #practicemakesperfect #feathergamechanger #flyfishing #flytying #featheredgamechanger #gamechangerfly #whitingfarms #flytyingjunkie #flyfishingjunkie #saltwaterflyfishing #calicobass #bassonthefly #bonita #yellowtail #channelislands #articulationnation #trout #rainbowtrout #browntrout #cutthroattrout #flyfishfood #streamerjunkie #flyfishfood #fluefiske #flugfiske #flugbindning #pescamosca #socal #ericstackleshop
Super fun day showing Mike and Michelle Anderson around our neck of the woods with @jh_camacho. Had a blast fishing around our islands chasing “Tiger Tuna” (Bonito), and Calico Bass. Good times with good people. Can’t wait to see the pics Michelle took with her legit camera! Mike ( @mt_anderson ) is a guide with @renoflyshop in Nevada, fishing Pyramid Lake for monster Lahonton Cutthroat, the Truckee, and other surrounding waters. If you find yourself out that way, do yourself a favor and look Mike and the Reno Fly Shop up. 🎣🙌 • • • #flyfishing #flytying #saltwaterflyfishing #bonito #tigertuna #calicobass #calicobassonthefly #channelislands #channelislandsnationalpark #rangerboats #scottflyrods #hatchoutdoors #tunaonthefly #bassonthefly #ericstackleshop #articulationnation #streamerjunkie #fluefiske #fluebinding #pescamosca #socal #youknowhowilikeem

Ummm.....yeah. 😳 • • Day two for Jamie with my flies. His messages are classic. 😂 • “And it gets better…. Your fly I call “Cousin It”, silverish straight hair with some brown, No Eyes, No rattle. Long Story short.. I landed a 180 Kilogram (400 Pounds) Arapaima plus one more of reasonable size on that fly. The only 2 fish caught this morning… I will get the pics tonight once our afternoon session is done… HUGE Fish and the biggest our guide every got from his boat.. Biggest He has seen since being here.  All in All…. Not too shabby on your flies… Pics to follow. When I say “Not too Shabby”…. I mean F-ing awesome!” • • I think I was happiest when he said that the flies were holding up...but he did say the eyes took a beating. I acknowledged that, and told him resins, adhesives were meant for fish....not dinosaurs! 😂🎣🦖 @rpopovics hollow style tie, using @squimpishflies fibers and veiled with @leterasfishing Magnum Dub on an @ownerhooks 8/0 Aki.
Another run of shad flies. Basically a mini DL3 Minnow. @rdflyfishing SF Blend, Rainbow Moon Dumbell eyes, 1” Streamer Brush and an @epflies 3” Craft Fur brush in grey all on @gamakatsu.usa B10S size 2. • • • #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flytyingjunkie #streamerjunkie #flyfishingaddict #flyfishingnation #flugfiske #fluefiske #flugbindning #pescamosca #bassfly #shad #bass #bassfishing #bassonthefly #largemouthbass #smallmouthbass #stripedbass
Gotta love getting this kind of feedback! Day one for my buddy Jamie chasing Arapaima with my flies. I bulletproofed them but wasn’t sure how they would hold up! Next time I’m going with the flies!!! 🎣🤞 • “I do not know if you will get this but your Peacock bass fly was on fire today… I mean smokin hot… 200 pound plus probably another 10 between 50 and 150.  I lost another bigger fish than the 200 because I was a knucklehead… Cloudy day today but that thing was perfect.. A  bit heavier due to the reticulated backing which gave a great sink pattern.  The color for today was perfect and everything about it was off the chain… Another AMAZING day here at Pirarucu no matter who you talk to.. The sad part is the guy using my camera did not have a clue as to what he is doing so the pictures miss most of the fish… Oh well.. Two more days to get pics.. LOL.. Unfortunately, these fish ate the sh….t out of your fly so I could not get one with the fly hanging out..I thought I would try something different this morning… We started out with a fly tied by the guide… It hooked a number of fish and then slowed down… I decided to fish you fly starting around 10 AM and then it was game on for the rest of the day…. yeee Haaaawww.” • • #flyfishingjunkie #amazonriver #arapaima #peacockbass #redbelliedpiranha #fishing #junglefish #gamechanger #gamechangerfly #changeyourgame #streamerjunkie #ericstackleshop #articulationnation #pescamosca #flugfiske #predatorflies #jungleflies #fishspines #flugbindning @flymenfishingco @blanechocklettfishing @harelinedubbin
Last fly headed to the Amazon. This one is a custom brush using @rdflyfishing SF Fibers and has 6 articulations using @flymenfishingco Fish Spines, all on a @ownerhooks 8/0 Aki hook. This guy should move some water. “V-tied” in some extra SF fibers to finish off the head @jonnyzking “Kinky Muddler” style, so I could control the shape and give it that extra bulk that was requested. Going to need a big gun to chuck it, but it will be chasing giants. Super fun tie! I’ll post the before and after haircut pics in my story highlights. 🎣🦖 • • • #matchthehatch #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #flyfishingjunkie #junglefish #peacockbass #gamechangerfly #streamerjunkie #articulationnation #ericstackleshop #pescamosca #fluefiske #flugfiske #predatorflies #jungleflies #amazonriver #amazonriverfishing #flugbindning
