Friday Night Flies – Mosquito Larvae Fly

Friday Night Flies - Mosquito Larvae Fly

Friday Night Flies – Mosquito Larvae Fly

Mosquito Larva is a great early season stillwater pattern.  Mosquito larvae, commonly called “wigglers,” live in water from 4 to 14 days depending on water temperature. During growth, the larva molts (sheds its skin) four times. The stages between molts are called instars. At the 4th instar, the usual larva reaches a length of almost 1/2 inch and toward the end of this instar ceases feeding. When the 4th instar larva molts, it becomes a pupa.  If you’ve ever fly fished in the Pacific Northwest you have definitely run into the adult form of the mosquito.

Material List:

Hook: Dry Fly Hook size 12
Thread: 3/0 Black Superthread
Tail: White rod wrapping Thread
Body: 3/0 Black Superthread
Rib: Superfly SuperGlitter Thread Red
Bead: Czech Seed Bead size 8 Crystal
Gill: White rod wrapping Thread.


Friday Night Flies – BloodWorm larvae Fly

Friday Night Flies – BloodWorm larvae Fly

The bloodworm is the larve of the non-biting Midge fly and lives on the bottom of a stream or a lake. The Adult flies look like mosquito’s, and form swarms above the water surface. Like mosquitos, they deposit their eggs on the water surface. This Chironomid is very effective for early season Fly Fishing.

Material List:

Hook: Dry Fly Hook size 12
Thread: 3/0 Red Superthread
Tail: White rod wrapping Thread
Body: 3/0 Black Superthread
Rib: Superfly SuperGlitter Thread Red
Bead: Czech Seed Bead size 8 Crystal.


Friday Night Flies – Cartoon Hopper

Friday Night Flies - Cartoon Hopper

Friday Night Flies – Cartoon Hopper

This pattern has the right profile with its carved and trimmed two tone foam body and enough wiggle with its rubber legs to fool any trout in any conditions. Although there are a number of steps in tying the Morrish Hopper, this fly is really quite easy to tie once you get the hang of trimming the foam body.  Some days the fish seem to key in on hoppers that are sitting low in water, much like the real thing. The thicker the foam body on the hopper, the lower the hopper rides in the water.

Material List:

Hook: Daiichi curved size 8
Body: Super foam sheet brown/tan
Wing: Natural elk hair
Legs: Silly legs
Eyes: Stick on eyes.


Friday Night Flies – Steelhead Candy Pop

Friday Night Flies – Steelhead Candy Pop

This pattern came to me after watching a few different composite loop tutorials from the guys at OPST. It’s a real easy pattern to die and is deadly for Steelhead and Salmon when you mix up the colors based on the species you are targeting. If you leave enough room with the intruder wire and stinger hook you will be able to switch out hooks based on the species you are targeting and even replace hooks if they break or bend. This is an awesome technique to makes extremely durable flies that will last a long time when you are targeting the aggressive Salmon species.

Material List:

Hook: Maruto MS4310HC size 2 attached to an OPST 32mm Steelhead Shank with black senyo’s intruder wire
Eyes: Double Pupil Brass Eyes medium fl. pink
Body: Lagartun mini-flatbraid orange
Dubbing Loop: Arctic fox orange, red and silver ice dub, pink ostrich herl, shrimp pink marabou
Head: Fuscha ostrich herl, Krinkle mirror flash pink, Shrimp pink ice dub
