Estaz Eggs now available in the Ebay Shop

I’ve been spending some time down by the rivers watching the salmon come up to spawn and tying tons of egg patterns to offer them. I’ve decided to offer up a few selections of Estaz Eggs in the Ebay shop. I’ll have a wider selection of sizes and colours coming in the next few weeks, but to start off we have a 5 colour selection of eggs for just 24.95 including shipping to destinations in Canada and the United States.

The Piscator Flies Ebay Store is slowly getting back up to speed and I’ve put up the assortments of Alaskabou flies once again. I’ll be adding additional patterns over the coming months including Hoh Bo Spey, flesh flies, marabou’s and other Steelhead specialties.

Keep an eye out for our RIO Products clearance coming up as well. We have a variety of lines, backing, tippet and leaders starting from just $2.00. It’s not expected to last long, so get it while you can.

If you are looking for other fly patterns, email us at piscatorflies@gmail.com with your pattern specifics. We tie lots of custom patterns starting from just $1.00. Cost will depend on the materials and complexity of the pattern.

All the best in 2014.

I’ve also been wanting to start tying a few of the late David Mac’s patterns. I’m finding that I don’t have materials for most of his patterns as he used a number of exotic feathers in many of his creations. I did have a close enough inventory to attempt his Purple Kate.

Snocone Chironomids in the Shop

It’s a simply pattern but really one that every stillwater angler should have a full stock of in their flybox. It can be fished on a long leader, under an indicator or jigged. Carrying these in your fly box could be the difference between being skunked out on the lake and being envied by every other angler on the water. Set the fly 5-8 feet under a strike indicator, and be ready to set the hook when the indicator moves. If nothing hits the fly, move it down 6 inches every 10 minutes until you start getting hits on the fly. These also make some of the best ice fishing lures for trout and perch. The assortment is just $12/doz and includes 4 of each colour (black, olive, red) in one size.
