Red Bandit Fly Tying Video

In this instructional fly tying video Matt Powell demonstrates how to tie the Red Bandit. This “attractor” nymph pattern was developed by Matt in Colorado, but has produced a lot of fish for him in the Pacific Northwest. The fly features Hareline’s new Gritty Tungsten bead, giving it a “glowing” red head. Tie one on and see if it measures up on your favorite trout stream.
