Saltwater fly patterns

We’ve done extensive research on saltwater fly patterns from tailing bonefish in the Caribbean, to East Coast striper patterns, and even offshore and nearshore flies for Oregon’s Saltwater Fly Fishing experience. See links to our saltwater fly tying video instructions below.

    NICE SITE. GREAT PRODUCTS. I HAVE USED YOUR HACKLE & OTHER. YOU HAVE A LOT OF DEDICATION TO WORK AND A LOT OF INSIGHT INTO THE NEEDS OF TIERS.

    Tied some sexy little Avalon Crab’s. Now just have to get somewhere to use ‘em.

    Do you have any Tarpon bunny patterns also? An olive bunny size 4 or a black one seem to work really well in the keys. Suprisngly (to me) the black seems to work well at night. Any other tarpon patterns would be appreciatted.

    Rcently (this summer) I tried every fly in my arsenal while literally surrounded by tailing tarpon in the Sebastian river (E. Central Florida), almost bouncing of the backs of those shiny Kings. I needed a “magic” fly – any hints??

    Many thanks,

    Flyboy

    Barrett,

    I saw a video of you tying Craft Fur Shrimp. Liked the looks and needed to know the colors of the select craft fur and color of feather craft body fur.

    If you would, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’ve been fly fishing the surf for several years in California. We have patterns that one cannot buy, but must tier themselves.
    One pattern is called the “Stevie’s Wonder Bug” which is either a red otr orange pattern, and is terrific on perch and corbina….a go to fly for me. I fish these with a doulble fly dropper set-up.
    Another is the “Voodoo Doll” another very effective pattern, tied in either a root beer, red or orange body.
    Also search the surf patterns “Mr. Bates” and Mrs Bates” tied by former Fly fishing contributing writer to California Fly Fisher, John Parmenter…excellent patterns that I suspect would work well in Oregon…
