For those that prefer to spend more time on the water than at the vise tying fly fishing flies, this fly pattern by Aaron Jasper of Trout Predator Online is for you! This has to be one of the simplest yet effective BWO emerger imitations I have ever seen and you can tie it in less than 2 minutes.

Ken, you have the beginnings of a very intriguing site here! Fantastic format – and great choice on the theme. It’s easy to navigate and pops up pertinent information right where you need it. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Dejon! I hope to put together a collection of quality on-line / interactive maps of the best trout fishing locations and contact information for local fly shops, guides & outfitters to help promote and support our fly fishing industry. Seems like a lot of work at times but now that I’ve got the website up and running it should get easier.
