Tying Tutorial: How to tie a Shad profile Hollow Fleye

Striper season is around the corner, and we know you guys are already starting to fill your fly boxes. If you've never tied a Bob Popovic's Hollow Fleye, this is a simple pattern that relies on technique rather than material, and makes an incredible fly that flat out catches fish that is easy to cast. In this video, we show you how to shape a shad profile using nothing more than bucktail and a little bit of flash using techniques that have been around for a long time - this is nothing new, and this makes a great platform to build upon with other materials. If you're looking for the materials described in the video, check

Due to Fannin County's current guidelines for all non-essential business, we will be closed from today till April 13th in Blue Ridge. We're in the middle of updating our online store, so hopefully we will have that up and running at the end of the day tomorrow.

Fishing Report: March 12th, 2020

The Toccoa Tailwater is fishing well outside of generation. We've been seeing midges hatching on the river in the evenings, and remnant black caddis might be seen. I would carry a few smaller Griffith's Gnats and Sprout Midges in cream and black in addition to smaller zebra midges if I were headed out. Also keep a few Parachute Adams in 12-18 to cover the various dark-bodied mayflies that could hatch this month. My main focus would be a subsurface presentation, so Pat's Rubber Legs/Stonefly imitations, Rainbow Warriors/Lightning Bugs, Pheasant Tail Variants 14-20, and Batman Nymphs. Don't Forget your split shot, and don't be afraid to throw a big chubby cherynobyl or foam pmx up top as a
