    What's the best way to tie on a drop fly?

  • #2
    I like to tie it directly to the hook of the first fly.

      Any specific knots preferred?

        I just use a double clinch. Its a classic knot, so I don't want to bore if you already know. If not, let me know.

          I agree with matouse. I do like to tie my dropper off the bend of the front hook.

          Tie your dry fly on first then drop your nymph off the bend of the dry fly hook and you'll be set. The dry fly will act as a indicator when a fish strikes the dropper.

            I was fishing the south fork of the Snake in South east Idaho last week with a licensed guide and he would tie it on to the bend in the hook with a regular fishing knot and it worked great for us

                        On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...
