LOON LIVE TONIGHT: SPECIAL GUEST BRITA FORDICE

Special Saturday night edition of Loon Live tonight!

On this special Saturday edition of Loon Live we welcome special guest Brita Fordice. The fly fishing industry is covered with Brita’s fingerprints from her time as a shop employee and manager, fly designer, product consultant, guide, and writer. Beyond her resume, she is a fantastic angler, and beyond that, she’s fantastically humble.

Brita will be tying up a squid and a flatwing streamer developed for her home waters of the Puget Sound. If you fish in the salt at all (even if you’re not a tyer), then join us on Saturday night as she’ll be going beyond tying to discuss tips and techniques for fishing the Sound.

We hope to we see you on Saturday at 6pm PST!
Follow this link when the time comes tonight.

Murdich Minnow Variant

From Piscator Flies:
“The Murdich Minnow was designed by Bill Murdich who also developed the Murdich Wrigger. Both are great fly patterns for warm water species like smallmouth and largemouth bass. The fly was originally tied for fishing in saltwater for Striped Bass but has crossed over into warm and cold water fishing. Use an appropriate hook for the target species and color the fly so that you mimic that target’s food items.”

Materials list:

Hook: Gamakatsu DV314
Thread: White 6/0 (140 d)
Tail: Bucktail
Flash: Pearl & Silver Flashabou
Collar: Ice Dubbing UV pearl
Body: Pearl Estaz
Hackle: UV Pearl Polar Chenille
Eyes: 7.0mm Living Eyes Wind

Tying a Flatwing – Barry Ord Clarke

From Barry:
“This is a single hackle flatwing sand eel, that is a killer fly for sea trout here in Scandinavia and striped bass in North America. A real easy pattern to tie when you know how.”
