Tying the Kreelex Streamer

We have been talking about the Kreelex Streamer since way back in 2015, but we have never actually put a proper tying tutorial together for the people.  You can find our quick video on Instagram, but look for a longer video soon.  You can find all the materials you will need below. This is a super simple pattern, and probably easier to learn than a Wooly Bugger for beginner tiers.  Give this a go and you will find tying the Kreelex Streamer to be quick and easy. The Kreelex Streamer was specifically for targeting trout, but it has proved to be a deadly pattern for just a ..read more

Patagonia Forra Wading Boot Review
Duranglers Fly Shop Blog
by Andy McKinley
8M ago
After the discontinuation of the Patagonia Ultralight wading boot a few years ago, the lightweight wading/hiking boot market saw a vacuum implode the market due to such a loss of pivotal gear.  Soon after, hucksters in Denver were slinging their rebranded Chinese junk boots that turned out to be rebranded Wal-Mart hiking boots with pseudo-felt soles to save on import taxes outside the Denver Fly Show.  Every Billy, Bob, and Hal with $20 to spare in the parking lot of the Denver Merchandise Mart felt empowered to hike far into the backcountry in search of Greenbacks, only to find th ..read more

Sage SALT R8 Fly Rod Review
Duranglers Fly Shop Blog
by Andy McKinley
11M ago
If you read our Sage SALT R8 ‘First Impressions’ blog, then you probably picked up on the fact that we like this rod, so just know we were a little biased towards the positive when setting out on our various ventures. However, parking lot and grass casting can only tell you so much about the soul of a fly rod.  To truly grasp the capability of a fly rod, one has to pressure test it: take shots, hook fish, miss fish, fight fish, and land them in a variety of conditions.  Trout rods are easier for us to get out and test, but living pretty far from saltwater poses challenges when tryi ..read more

Beginner’s Guide to Fly Fishing Lakes for Trout
Duranglers Fly Shop Blog
by Andy McKinley
1y ago
Beginner’s Guide to Fly Fishing Lakes for Trout The why, where, when, what, and how of fly fishing in lakes for trout. At the onset of the first warm days of spring comes snowmelt in Colorado.  Snowmelt means cold and dirty rivers and creeks, and dirty rivers result in the inevitable fly shop question we so often hear at Duranglers: “Where can I fish that isn’t blown out?” Our usual reply to this question is something along the lines of “taliwaters” such as the San Juan River (which is experiencing its own dirty water snowmelt event this spring), or “lakes and reservoirs”.  At 40 ye ..read more
