In this video, Jim Sens ties his version of Charley Bird’s Bird’s Nest.
Using Awesome Possum, wood duck, and dubbing Jim shows you dubbing loop techniques that create durable, fishy flies that are guaranteed to catch trout.
Jim has personally tested this fly on rivers such as the McKenzie to great success. He swings them, drifts them, or hangs them as a dropper off of a dry fly.
