Rick is back with another of his favorite fly tying patterns. This one is personal. The pattern was developed by Rick’s friend and famous angler Dave Whitlock. This is a classic fly pattern for trout and has a lot of potential for those cold water species. Take a look and tie a few up.

Rick has now tied quite a few trout fly tying videos for us. Take a look at the list below or select from the dropdown list to the right.


  • Hook: TMC 3769 #6-18 or any 1x or 2x long nymph-weftly hook.
