Best hatch of the year

Flytimes Poly Wing Baetis

hook: #18-#20 TMC 101
tail: brown antron
body: Superfine dubbing, gray olive
wing: ~1/3 to 1/4 strand of polypro yarn
thorax: same as body

Here at the Flytimes Ranch we call it the working man's hatch because it lasts long enough that nobody has to take time off to fish it.

Olive Biot Parachute

Flytimes Olive Biot Parachute

hook: TMC 100 #14
post: white turkey flats
tail: light dun micro-fibetts
body: olive turkey biot quill (long side)
parachute: brown saddle hackle
thorax: olive antron dubbing

Summer is over and the PMDs and PED's are still emerging while mahogany duns and various baetis species are just getting started. This time of year I'll fish this pattern all day. If the blue winged olives start to hatch I'll tie a tiny BWO pattern on the dropper.

Native Trout Files: Westslope Cutthroat

Westslope Cutthroat

Discovered near the Great Falls by Silas Goodrich and named by his superior officers, Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi was once the widest ranging of all the cutthroats. Since the Corps of Discovery Westslope cutthroat populations have retreated back to the tributaires and headwaters of its ancestral watersheds; the Columbia and the Missouri.

Hey look its an internet magazine about fly fishing.
These things have come and gone over the years but I think that This is Fly is here to stay. It might even change the way we see our sport.
How do you jump into a new medium while maintaining the appeal of the old standby?
You start by taking out the garbage and the recycling: how to articles, file footage photos, product reviews and the like. Fuggem' we don't need no stinkin' product reviews!
Great fishing stories, original photos, west coast graphics and east coast attitude. Package it all in a feature filled flash player. The future in fly fishing mags? This Is Fly is it.
