NW Outfitters have been fishing classic style Atlantic Salmon hair wing tubes for steelhead for a while now with awesome results. They cast like bullets, move great, and sink fast. They thought it was time to share.
Here is a video showing how to safely handle, hold, catch, and release trout in a better and healthier way to better ensure their survival.
Dying Feathers is a real good idea, especially if you want a special color. Maybe that nymph that you have seen in your new fishing waters is a color that your Feather supplier does not have. If you experiment with the dyes you may just come up with that color.

Here’s a few simple tips on how to best hold a fish and get a great photograph, without harming the fish.
There’s a lot of debate right now about photographing fish. Like most topics that get blown out of proportion on the internet, this debate is riddled with sensationalized accusations and disinformation. I’ve written about holding fish for photographs but I thought a short video showing how simple and noninvasive it can be would be a big help.
First, I’d like to clarify my stance on the subject. When done properly, I do not see any harm in photographing a fish. Fish are injured by poor handling, not cameras. I have two serious problems with the ‘no photo’ argument. First, it simply doesn’t address the problem. If anglers are mishandling fish, they are doing so while landing them and unhooking them with or without a photo. Demonizing the camera does nothing to stop this and doesn’t save fish. What we should be doing is educating anglers on ethical fish handling. Secondly, the photograph is the bargain that makes catch-and-release fishing work. Whether you like it or not there are simply a lot of anglers who require proof of their catch. It’s much better to give them a photo than a corpse.

During this tutorial, I go through the tying of the Prince nymph pattern, with the focus on my thought process when making variations to the original pattern. As an experienced fly tyer, making variations is something Tim completes with ease, but he also understands that those with less experience are interested in why certain decisions are made when tying. Throughout this tutorial, the areas to vary include beads, weight, tails, ribbing, body material, hackle/legs, and the stingers. There is also time spent discussing hot spots @ the front of the pattern.
In this “Tips & Techniques” fly tying video, Tim explains some common uses for hen hackle. As a beginning fly tyer over 25 years ago, he knew little about the differences between hen and rooster, thus he wanted to give a brief overview and show a few common applications for the actual hen feathers. There are many more uses for hen hackle, but this video features the common ones that he employs, especially with JV Hen Hackle.
The various applications Tim shows are: Tailing and legs (especially for use with patterns such as the Copper John), beards on wet fly patterns, and soft hackles. These are just a few possibilities for utilizing hen hackles.
Speaking of JV Hen Hackle, Tim wants to give a shout-out to Clearwater Hackle, which is where Tim gets the majority of the hackle he uses. They have an incredible product called JV Hen Hackle, which offers smaller and softer feathers, especially for those tying trout flies. The feathers will tie down to 18 on soft hackles, and there are lots of great colors (Tim discusses the JV Hungarian Partridge Hen Hackle a lot in this video!). There is a Twitter feed now (@Clearwaterhackle) or you can go about it via the website. When you visit their site, be sure to let Lars (the owner) know that Tim Cammisa had sent you: http://www.clearwaterhackle.com/jv-hens/

Smallmouth junkies, this one’s for you! Our top-producing Smallmouth fly of 2014 was cooked up by our own Mike Schultz. Embodying many of the principals in Tommy Lynch’s D&D flies, the Swingin’ D is optimized for Smallies. The foam diver head gives it more of a “dart” and less of a “roll”. Faster to tie than your average “D” and designed for durability against chunk Smallies.
Best fished on an intermediate line and running higher in the water column. Make sure you’re using a very “sharp” retrieve and exaggerating the pause. They always eat on the pause…
