fly fishing, spring flies, best flies for spring,

It’s almost springtime in the Rockies—but not quite. There’s still a few more snowstorms bound to blow through, which means a few more weeks to crank out bungs in anticipation for the season. These two videos, from a couple of great companies that manufacture materials and tying accessories, show how to tie a quick and effective Girdlebug, and a fantastic jig nymph called the Jigawockie, for high-sticking and tight-line nymphing.

Pray for spring, but in the meantime, get to tying.
