The first fly in the Nick Granato Series…..the Sasquatch. I like to call Nick Granato the “Mad Scientist” of fly designers. Looking at the recipe for this fly you think “How in the WORLD will this stuff make a good looking fly??” and then you get something as sexy as any fly I have ever seen. Crazy-Cool and fishes REALLY well.

If you are much of a Nymph fisherman at all…..you have caught Rainbow Trout smaller than this fly. If that doesn’t get your attention I don’t know what will.

Gartside Articulated Streamer

Jeremy Hunt

Another great pattern for browns! Because of the foam being incorporated in the fly, this will act like a Zara Spook in the conventional world of fishing. Some of the best action for a fly that is working for you while stripping it in. Tie one and see for yourself.

See Parts 2, 3 and 4 on Jeremy Youtube Channel.


Bucktail Articulated Streamer

Jeremy Hunt

February class is all about streamers. This fly triggers big browns on the White River located in Arkansas. It will trigger some on your home water if there are browns. It’s my go-to pattern when fishing big cfs (anything over 10,000). If you have any questions about this fly give me a shout and make sure to check out the site for other cool streamers http://www.flysandguides.com .

See Parts 2, 3 and 4 on Jeremy Youtube Channel.

Conrad Sculpin

Jeremy Hunt

Jeremy teaches the Conrad Sculpin at his free tying class held at the hatchey building (Sheperd of the Hill) below Table Rock dam located in Branson Missouri. Classes always start at 2pm on two Saturday’s a month during the winter months. We will continue to tie streamers through Jan 2012. See you there!!
