Paul Prentiss

New Streamer Materials & Approaches - Paul Prentiss is going way beyond just tying with Rabbit and Marabou.  How about tying some patterns that drop to the bottom immediately?  Have you ever tied big streamers on cotter pins?  If you fish big water like the Colorado or Gunnison this is a must see.

Paul Prentiss

Must Have Basic Scuds - Scuds are the most common freshwater crustaceans and are present in mind boggling numbers in lakes, spring creeks, and virtually all tailwaters.  Despite the fact that trout pursue and eat them year round, few anglers bother to carry scud patterns.  Or if they do, they have one or two generic versions.  Paul is going to tie a half dozen patterns that should be in your fly box.
