There is hardly a fishing report that I've written in the last few years that didn't suggest using a Pat's Rubber Legs. It can be tied in a variety of sizes and colors and it works. This fly was originally designed on the Henry's Fork and has easily become one of the most productive bugs in SW Montana.

Not a super challenging fly to tie, but there is an art to getting the legs, tails and antennae to lay just right.

Here's a video tutorial by InTheRiffle for the Pat's Rubber Legs

Hope to see you all this Thursday evening at 5pm. Please bring tools and thread and I'll supply the rest! BYOB
