Ben Byng ties up his Skwala Stone Dry Fly. You can find a lot of Skwala Fly Patterns out there but this is one of the best, in our opinion. It’s a beautiful, colorful fly while also fun to tie. Let us know how you like this skwala outdoors fly tying pattern as well as how it performs for you out on the water.

You have been looking for Skwala Fishing or Skwala Outdoors.

From Ben:

I have been fly fishing and tying flies for the past 20 years. From 2001 to 2005, I worked for the late Andre Puyans helping at his fly fishing seminars in Idaho. More recently, I’m a fly fishing instructor for Wilderness Unlimited and The Becoming an Outdoor Woman programs.

You can find me hanging around the tier’s row at the west coast fly fishing shows and expos in the early spring. Bass fishing with a fly in the California Delta on hot summer nights for a double digit fish is the current goal.
