Lance Egan’s Red Dart Fly Tying Video

In this instructional fly tying video Tony Torrence demonstrates how to tie Lance Egan’s Red Dart. This attractor pattern is a local favorite for fishing as the point fly in a Hopper-Dropper configuration. As a jigged pattern it also makes a great point fly for a two fly nymphing set-up. Tie a few in various sizes and weights to meet the river conditions and you will be very pleased in how well the Red Dart produces fish.
