    great spring creek pattern - 4/1/2015

    I have fished this pattern on spring creeks in the Midwest and have found it productive. A wonderful caddis bwo impression. It works in riffles and as a dropper fly on a tandem rig. Try it next time when you want a little excitement on the end of your leader.

    Big fish love the Auto Emerger. - 11/3/2012
    By: from Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming

    Whether guiding or fishing on my own, the Auto Emerger is my go to mayfly nymph. From technical tailwaters to freestone Cutthroat streams, this fly produces. The tungsten version gets down to the fish quickly. This fly caught more big fish for me this season, than any other fly, including this 25" Brown.

    Gets Deep, Big 'Bows & Browns - 4/30/2011
    By: from Victor, Idaho

    Fishing this fly deep on the North Platte in Wyoming is crazy productive. Match the may-fly you see, the PMD or BWO, both versions are killer. These fish hold near the bottom and rarely lift to the surface. The tungsten gets you to the "eat" zone. Lift and swing this fly at the end of your drift and you will move and battle some true beasts.
