Tying Flies that Catch Fish

Lefty Kreh and Bob Clouser are on the fly tying bench together and showing us some deadly saltwater and freshwater flies. They start by demonstrating bend back flies with Bob showing how he ties a Bendback Clouser. Next its Bucktail Deceivers, which are easy to tie and which look fantastic in the water. Despite being quite large flies, this pattern is lightweight and therefore can be cast using 8 or 9 weight rods. It can be used effectively for saltwater species like snook, tarpon and redfish as well as Northern Pike in freshwater and in smaller sizes for largemouth and smallmouth bass. Lefty and Bob then tie classic versions of their two most famous patterns, Bob's Clouser Minnow and Lefty's Deceiver and discuss how many variations can be made once the style is mastered. Bob then shows us the Maxi Minnow which can be 6-9 inches long which is sometimes crucial to attract larger fish, whilst Lefty's shows us the Hackle Fly, a classic bass pattern. We watch Bob tie his BP Clouser tied on a smaller hook which is fantastic for bonefish before Lefty discusses Popping Bugs which are excellent in both freshwater and saltwater and then shows us how he makes a popping bug from scratch. Finally, Bob and Lefty demonstrate the Half and Half, which guessed it, half Clouser Minnow and half Lefty's Deceiver. Tying Flies that Catch Fish is a timeless instructional video as you can be pretty sure that the patterns invented by these two, will be catching fish for eternity.
