Kevin Hospodar's Semi Realistic Mayfly

Another great fly tying video tutorial coming from Kevin Hospodar – his Semi Realistic Mayfly pattern – a Blue Winged Olive variation featuring a Hemingway’s Mayfly Tube Bodies and Realistic Wings.

This is Kevin’s ‘fly tying for trout’ pattern: “an easy-to-tie extended body mayfly that really looks the part. Realistic fly tying is an intimidating undertaking and the process is not very easy to grasp from idea to completion. But, utilizing a few unique materials you can have a semi-realistic extended body mayfly that catches fish and is durable.”

Definitely give it a try. The results are super-effective and steps easy to follow. Thanks for sharing Kevin.
