EL Chupacabra Tutorial

EL Chupacabra Tutorial

    Highly influenced by Brad Bohen’s Hang Time and fortified with Clear Cure Goo El Chupacabra is a staple in my Esox arsenal. After years of fishing and tweaking it’s a great confidence pattern that can be tied in a just about any color scheme you can imagine. But don’t think of El Chupacabra […]


Sasquatch

Some years back I joined a fly swap on the Drake and it threw me a bit of a curve ball. Unlike local fly swaps these were going around the word and to several people across the country. So I set out to develop a highly versatile pattern that could be fished anywhere, anytime for […]

Mid Winter R & D Pays Off!

Mid Winter R & D Pays Off! A good portion of my time on the water is spent testing and fishing patterns I’ve been working on… What I’m working on at the vice more often than not dictates where I fish and what I throw.  To me there is no reason for me to say […]
