Cammisa's Stealth Mode jig nymph
Cammisa's Stealth Mode is a jig nymph that pays homage to tinsel-bodied flies with its use of UNI-Mylar. Though that material has "stealth" tendencies, everything completely changes with the rear hot spot...and fish don't seem to mind. Learn more about this pattern in the video.
Flies: To tie or to buy???

In this fly tying video, I tie a simple version of the Foam Beetle. This is an easy-to-tie pattern that lends well to variations, but I also wanted to share how I use a foam cutter to tie multiple sizes. Finally, be sure to catch the end of the tying for a little hint, ha ha! ;-)

If you fish in waterways known for caddisflies, here's a pattern that belongs in your fly box! This caddis is one that I fish to imitate the Grannom Caddis (also known in areas as the Mother's Day Caddis). This is a "new and improved" version of a previous video, and I'm sure you'll enjoy this one.
