The Sunriver Anglers Fly Tying Corner features a UV Sparkle Soft Hackle this month. It is an excellent pattern to imitate emerging Callibaetis, Pale Morning Duns and of the mayflies.

The Sunriver Anglers Fly Tying Corner this month features a Callibaetis Biot Nymph pattern. This is an excellent pattern for imitating Callibaetis during mid-summer hatches of this prolific mayfly.
