Nice rainbow, huh?

We’ve been catching fish on $3 Dip, RiverKeeper Soft Hackle Cripple, Beetle Bailey, and an occasional Elk Hair Caddis.

Now that you’re paying attention, here are some recent changes you may have missed.

A few flies I’ve added to the Fly Patterns tab:

I continue to add fly pattern sheets. You’ll be seeing a few more nymphs in the near future.


  • I’ve added a link for a website called Animated Knots, a great video resource for how to tie knots.
  • Bob left a comment about using the Davy knot. Follow the link in Resources and check it out.
  • Updated my favorite Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Books Learning from the Water by Rene Harrop and Montana’s Best Fishing Waters.

Check out the Popular Posts section on the right-hand sidebar. These are links to the most viewed blog posts. Be sure to read them if you’ve missed any.

If you are on Facebook, check out and LIKE my RiverKeeper Flies page. I’ve started a “Throw Back Thursday” post of older flies that were popular years ago and sometimes, but not always forgotten. The first two were a Tied Down Caddis and the Zug Bug.

Thanks for following RiverKeeper Flies!
