Tying the LaFontaine Sparkle Emerger

The Orvis news posted our latest tying video, which is one of our go-to flies all year.  We tie them in the 4 primary colors that Gary details in his ground breaking book, Caddisflies.  These colors will cover 80% or more of the available caddis in North American trout streams.

1. Brown & Bright green
2. Brown & Yellow
3. Gray & Black
4. Ginger

Enjoy and feel free to ask questions.

And sharpen those hooks!

Sorry, can't spell

Thanks Matt, seeing it done is very helpful. This fly has been frustrating for me to tie well
