A great little fly

The hackle wing rusty spinner is a staple in my box.  Tied large to small. Pictured is a size 20. The small sizes with a simple thread body have served me well on many streams.  From the tough limestones to tail waters and everywhere in between. 
 The hackle wing spinner is an old spinner pattern that is hands down one of the most effective and durable ways to tie a spinner.  Quick, easy and few materials make this fly a no brainer.  
I'll be instructing how to tie this pattern at our up coming ridge and valley tying night on July 1st at the Musconetcong water shed association blg in asbury nj.   @ 730pm.  Come on out and learn to tie this deadly fly.   Also Utah's fly corners next video in the works is for the #20 rusty hackle wing spinner.  So stay tuned. 


Utah's fly corner studios.

Utah's fly corner studios has returned to film making.  Stay tuned for fly tying videos and tutorials!! And more!!!!! 

Catskill outing

 Well I was up in the Catskills this past weekend.  It was an outing with my T.U. Chapter.  8 of us in total with a few more friends and chapter members meeting up with us to fish.  We stayed at the dream catcher lodge. Which is very modest with pricing and the cabins are very nice.
  Half way up I realized I had forgotten my camera! With my phones cam being scratched to hell I was s.o.l. As far as pics went.  
 The first lights out on Friday was great. Many sulphurs and caddis around. As for the next two nights out well they sucked to say the least.  Tons of tiny sulphurs coming of but not a flash, boil, or any rise forms. 
 We hit the beaver kill for some late morning early afternoon nymphing.  My iso nymph did very well, landing me 2 very beautiful bows that had my Lamson guru screaming.  
 The iso nymph is modified version of the pattern I've tied in the past but similar. I will do a tutorial for the pattern very soon.
 All in all the outing was a blast.  Lots of laughs and great food. With everyone catching trout.  
 As for the nomad,  bitch, and the savage. I have been very pleased with the tech pack set up(bitch creek back pack and the savage creek chest pack) and the fishpond nomad net.
  Great to be back to posting
