Great new video from Kevin Hospodar! He shows us how to tie Green Drake Mayfly pattern, easy and simple-to-follow steps:
“This is an extremely effective, semi-realistic, Green Drake pattern. With the use of very few materials, this is an extremely easy fly to tie. While some people may prefer to create their own extended bodies and burn their own wings, with the new materials available you can speed up your tying time and still have effective and durable flies.”
Check out his video and try tying your Green Drake Mayfly.
