Fly of the Month: Skull & Bones

Skull & Bones Download

It’s time for another installment of our Fly of the Month. This month we feature a midge pupa pattern that we frequently fish on our tailwaters. It’s been one of our favorites on the Clinch and Holston Rivers plus we’ve found opportunities to use it successfully on Western Rivers like the Madison, Henry’s Fork, and Yellowstone.

This download is free and in a PDF format which is readable on your computer and mobile devices.

  1. I really enjoy keeping in touch and being motivated to get back to the Smokeys to fish.

    Thanks, Jerry

  2. Ian and charity. I found the midge video to be very helpful. Your website and continued work on behalf of fly fishermen is appreciated. I sent you an email a day or two ago with some questions re’ bonefishing and Hazel Creek. Did you receive it? Mike
