Fly Tying: The Mole Fly

Fly tying tutorials and patterns from

A simple, effective dry fly pattern you should always have in the box.

Tightline Productions recently posted another awesome fly tying video, this time showing Charlie Craven’s Mole Fly pattern.

It’s a simple, effective 2 material pattern that floats like nobody’s business. Using CDC and beaver dubbing, this pattern is probably one of the easiest you can learn to tie.

I tie this fly using either Ear’s Hare+ dubbing or my own custom blend of deer hair dubbing. It floats well and is usually highly productive.


Be sure to check out Tightline Productions over on YouTube for some other awesome tying videos.
