Brooks’ Blondes have always given me good results, they are timeless I’d say. That’s why I made new adaptations of this model throughout the years, for different waters and fish. The Rainbow Warrior is like a Blonde whose design makes it move more water without it being heavy. Adding barred feathers, like dyed grizzly rooster, makes imitating small trout and other fish easier. Peacock, red flashabou and jungle cock give it some color details that make it more attractive under the water.
Bid streamers are ideal for big trout, but using other colors makes this fly great for golden dorados, peacock bass and many sea species; that’s why I tie them on strong lasting hooks and don’t change them when I change species.

It's a simple enough pattern and I've been tying it with both fluorescent fire orange and fluorescent pink hot spots in the thorax. The fly is finished with a thin coating of UV resin (Bone Dry) and I double up on the thorax to create a more pronounced profile.

This is a good fly for tying into smaller sizes (18-22) and I use a razor blad to trim threads thus avoiding messy tags under the resin. If you don't have resin to work with, your regular head cement should work well, giving the fly a double coat at the thorax. Take care not to block the eye of the hook with either thread wraps at the head or with your choice of sealing.

After over a decade, fly fishing for Roosterfish from the beach has held its challenging allure for anglers in Baja. So much so, in fact, that we found a man who has devoted his life to Roosters. Meet Grant Hartman - long-time fly fishing guide, surfing extraordinaire, and life-loving local who has spent countless hours chasing a historically elusive species on the fly. This is Grant’s story.

These bugs can make up a good portion of a trout's diet during these months, and especially into the fall when bulking up is a priority.

Bob states that he has been offered many Corixa (Water boatmen) and Notonectidae (backswimmer) patterns over the years, but has had most of his success with this backswimmer fly pattern while fishing the lakes of Saskatchewan.

Bob also points out the misnomer that the bugs leave a trail of bubbles behind as they dive, the initial reason for the crystal flash tail. While this may not hold true, he opted to include this feature in order to add a little bit of stabilization to the otherwise tail-less fly and to give predators another trigger to gaze upon.

The spring creek water that is so cool in the hot summers, also keeps the water from freezing in the winter times. Scuds and midges are the primary diet in the wintertime, but leeches and streamers can be deadly as well. Spring creeks often bring the benefit of crystal clear water which allow you to sight fish to large fish ratcheting up the excitement.

This fly has a number of elements that I like in a fly. A fat nymph profile, hot spot, and a heavy weighted bead head. You could even add a little extra weight in the form of some wire or lead behind the bead.

I'll be pitching this fly into some small creek pockets waters come the spring, but I think the pattern has good prospects for fishing deeper waters under a strike indicator or even fishing stillwater with a cast and retrieve.

It's also great for salmon and trout. The fly was originally tied to target fish in the Rouge River system in Oregon but has been quite successful fished elsewhere on the western coast and on the Great Lakes tributaries.

I've modified my version of the fly by using brass eyes rather than lead and by using the Bug Shop Ultra Chenille instead of the Woolly Bugger chenille used on the original. https://globugs.com/products/glo-bugs-ultra-chenille

The Thunder Egg is weighted and was designed to be a sinker and to be fished in tandem with an unweighted egg. This was especially useful for fishing rivers where external weights were restricted.

You can tie this in any number of color combinations, but pink, red and oranges seem to perform quite well.

We had kinda plan and scenery prepared before we left. But all went upside down when we reached this wild place and saw the river with extremely high water level and continuous bad weather. It made our fishing and filming really tough. How ever we caught a few nice taimen got them on camera and had great experience. But that was not enough for the film we planed. So we decided to go back in 2016 again.
So this year we went back again with group of anglers and other plans for scenery. We were really hoping for nice water level and good fishing this time. So the idea was to compare fishing in bad conditions from last year and fishing in more friendly conditions this year... And bang! Here we go again! The river is blown out even more then last year! Mental break down, tough conditions, hard fishing, vodka and all game changes again.
So the project "Expedition Taimen" is about our two trips while exploring Russian wilderness in the search for taimen.

Flies in sizes #18-26 are the norm for him. I'm used to tying flies in the #12-18 range, for the most part, mostly tying mayfly nymphs and caddis larva for the local trout.

This pattern fits into that small fly for tailwater fly fishing slot, but I'm using the Mirror Dip as a dropper fly in mid-sized rivers. I've tied it as the dropper on a dry dropper set-up where fish were feeding at the surface and just below. It's also been a good fly tied behind a bead head nymph.

Both the original Serendipity and the popular variant called the $3 Dip, originally known as the $3 Bridge Serendipity, are effective patterns to have in your fly box. This variation offers a highly reflective mirror finish and a dark head. I imagine this imitates a caddis larva or a midge pupa but serves as an easy food item for foraging trout.

The original Serendipity was designed by a guide from California named Ross A. Merigold. He was fond of fishing the Madison River in Montana, so much, in fact, you can now find a bronze plaque honoring his legacy. If you are crossing the Raynold’s Pass Bridge look for a boulder that houses the plaque just above the bridge that identifies the Ross Merigold Hole.
