Boulder Creek Caddis Tying Demo

In an effort to keep your fly box fresh and loaded with the best patterns around FRA has this to offer.  Jay Zimmerman's own Boulder Creek Caddis. 
Jay speaks on his pattern,"This fly was developed to be used as a great lead fly in a dry dropper rig, it is super easy to see and rides low in the water to attract more fish...the benefit of the curved hook means that this fly hangs droppers just right so that the most subtle strike can be detected."

Bellyache Tying Demo

"This fly was originally designed to be a shad imitation, but due to limitless color combination's and sizes this pattern can mimic almost any bait fish.  Another great feature of the 'Bellyache Technology' is that the fly rides hook up so you can work deep cover and significantly reduce the number of hang ups.  This fly has caught lists of coldwater species, warmwater species and because of the hook a number of saltwater fish."
