Tied during the "Working with Foam" class on 12/18/09. The Hopper Juan is my signature pattern that works great as a hopper or stonefly. I fish this thing about 10 months of the year, usually followed by a tungsten Glossy Back Baetis as a dropper and have tons of fun fishing this way.
Tied on Dec 18th, 2009 during one of my classes. Amy's Ant is one of my favorite flies to tie and to fish with. It can be tied in many different colors and in many different styles. Change the color of the chenille, the foam, the legs and you can customize this as you need to. This is the way I currently tie this fly.
A quick and easy tie, this is a true guide fly. Easy to change colors and to get a different look, this thing is effective in PMD, gray and black to name a few. I would keep the tails a bit shorter than what I did here.
Ben Furmisky's BDE pattern. This pattern can cover almost all mayflies and can take the place of those patterns that are unused and in your box just in case. Ben is a member of the Montana Fly Company design team and is one of the best tiers out there. Ben is also the Co -Director for "The Fly Fishing Show".
