Larimer’s Brazilian Fly Tying Video

The Brazilian is a subtle colored fly designed to fish in low, clear water. Claret flies are a great choice for Summer Steelhead, and this Tom Larimer creation is no exception. Whether you swing this fly as a comeback fly or as your pattern of the day, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. While I have tied this pattern with a red wire, the pattern calls for Copper Wire, not wine as stated in the video. According to Mr. Larimer, a very consistent producer on Idaho’s Clearwater River.
