Classic Podcast: Fly Patterns old and New, with Tim Flagler

This week, back by popular demand is Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions , who is one of the best fly-tying teachers around and also produces the best tying videos on the Internet. (See his One-Minute Tying Tips on our Fly Fishing blog or in the Orvis Learning Center.) Tim and I talk about great new patterns and old patterns that should be resurrected, as well as taking old patterns and incorporating modern materials into them. We also discuss that state of fly-tying today, which is probably more exciting than at any other time in history because of the great interchange of ideas in places like Instagram and YouTube.

In
the Fly Box this week, we have some great questions and suggestions:

  • Suggestion on how to keep your split shot from sliding down the leader.
  • Suggestion on a free way to remove water from dry flies.
  • Do nymphs work all season long?  What method should I start with?
  • Should I do anything to maintain my old Orvis Green Mountain outfit?
  • What do you think of foam posts for parachute flies?
  • How do I catch rolling tarpon in deep water? 
  • How can I catch gar on a fly?
  • Can I use big streamers on small streams in Central New York?
  • I like short rods.  Should I get the 6-foot Superfine Carbon or 61/2-foot Orvis Superfine Glass rod?
  • Can I buy the right Comparadun hair online?
