Friday Night Flies – Lefty’s Deceiver
The Lefty’s Deceiver is an artificial fly streamer pattern used in fly fishing for freshwater and saltwater species. The fly was originated by fly angler and author Lefty Kreh in the Chesapeake Bay for striped bass. The original fly was tied to resemble smelt, a common striped bass forage. The Deceiver is arguably the best known saltwater fly pattern in the world and in 1991 the U.S. Postal Service honored Kreh’s creation with a postage stamp.

Friday Night Flies – Hoh Bo Spey
The Hoh Bo Spey is no stranger to the Steelhead anglers of the Pacific Northwest. Designed by Charles St. Pierre, the Hoh Bo Spey has proven itself as an essential winter and summer run Steelhead fly. Unlike a lot of Steelhead flies, this one goes together quite quickly and I would classify it as a “guide” fly. In the water, the Hoh Bo Spey has that classic tear drop shape that we want in a Steelhead fly. You can weight this pattern or keep it unweighted and it works in all of your favorite Steelhead colors.

Friday Night Flies – Mighty Might Golden Stone
The Mighty might golden stone is a perfect fly pattern for early year. The most important stage of a stone fly in my opinion is its nymph stage because they are more available to trout when crawling along the ground. You can euro nymph these suckers or us a strike indicator. I prefer using a thingamabobber because of the heavy weight of the tungsten head. Golden stone are more abundant in faster moving water because they like oxygenated water, they are also more abundant in higher elevations. Larger golden stones are carnivores so they will feed on small stones, caddis nymphs, mayfly nymphs, midges. Most fast rivers will have a Stonefly of some sort so make sure you have some of these in box!

Friday Night Flies – Amy’s Ant
Amy’s Ant is a pattern created by industry legend Jack Dennis. The pattern, at least to me is a combination of a hopper, Chernobyl ant and a stimulator. The pattern gain notoriety in 1999 when it won the Yellowstone Angler One Fly contest. Shortly after that, the pattern was picked up by Umpqua and is still sold commercially to my knowledge.
