Striper Flies

The Masked rainbow comes in several different colors. It's a heavily weighted striper fly designed to sink fast and freely. A fly that produces great in the clearest of water. 


"Masked Rainbow" Colors: Bass, Grey, Chart, Auqua, & Rainbow.

Simple yet deadly effective.

Lightly weighted smaller clouser minnows for bass.

Hooks ride upside down.

This lowers snags in the rugged areas bass occupy.

Masked Rainbow Style

For an additional fee, mini clousers can be tied in the more realistic style of the "masked rainbow". Not limmited to the rainbow color.

Clouser Minnow

Bob Clouser's "Clouser Minnow" is a time tested fly that's truly genius in its simplicity and effectiveness. A great striper/bass streamer that's been proven over the years. Ones found in my box and my customer's boxes are the biggest and bulkiest.

Pole Dancer

The pole dancer is a fly that revolutionized the topwater fly game. Giving us the ability to walk the dog like a conventional "zara spook." As with most of my flies, I tie mine quite a bit different. But any pole dancer that swims properly is a top warm water fly for Northern California.

Murdich Minnow

Recommended to me by Doc Cedar. This fly has a nice spot in my arsenal of tactics now. The Murdich Minnow is a pleasure to cast. Lite enough for a 5wt or 6wt . Even a 4wt. Unheard of for a 6” streamer. With hooks strong enough for baby tarpon. It can be fished within inches of the surface, or down deep on sinking lines. The fly stays in the same water column when retrieved, giving it an irresistible swim.
