Martyn White shows us step by step instructions for Bob Clouser’s hellgrammite.
“This suggestive imitation of a Dobsonfly larva is an excellent smallmouth fly, it’s full of movement and has an incredibly enticing action when fished dead drift or retrieved. I’ve tied an olive version here, but black or dark brown is also very effective.”

Learn how to tie a small, less than 2 inch long intruder, in under 2.5 minutes. Hopefully this will give you some ideas. In different color combinations these small intruders are extremely effective for trout, bass and steelhead. This one has a hook that’s definitely for trout, though. They are also pretty addictive to tie. Challenge yourself to see just how small you can go- and try them out on your local fishery- you might be surprised.

TCO Fly Fishing guide, Jake Villwock, designed the Over Easy Sculpin. He had this to say about the fly.
“This fly is an all around fresh water fly, it has caught trout, smallmouth, and steelhead. It can be stripped, swung, or dead drifted. The stinger hook in the back gives you the ability to switch the hook from up facing or down, depending on the style you are fishing it. Crawling on the bottom, go hook up. Swinging or striping it mid current, go hook down. I tie it in olive, brown, black, and tan. It has also been purchased by Orvis. So that’s kinda cool. I am an Orvis signature tier and Regal Vise Pro Staff member.”
Gunnar gives a detailed step by step explanation on how to tie his Impostor pike fly.
Gunnar had this to say about his new streamer. “This fly is a synthetic based flashabou/stacked fiber fly hybrid, designed to cut water and behave like a jerk bait. It comes in at 8.5″, is tied on an Ahrex 4/0 Light Predator Stinger (barbless), and is a perfect size fly for Pike, Smallmouth, and Big Trout!”
Gunnar says, “I tie a small baitfish streamer pattern that I designed and explain in detail how to tie it. The fly is roughly 4″ long and is designed to cut though the water, creating a jerk bait style action. The Jerk Jr. is an exalent smallmouth bass pattern as well as other warm water, and saltwater species.”

I want to send a thanks out to everyone that ordered Zudbubblers and other flies from my online store during the recent sale. I still have a few sale orders to tie and send out. The Zudbubbler sale has been a success, but all good things come to an end. So this weekend will be the end of the sale.
Matt Grajewski displays his Yard Sale streamer step-by-step below.
