View Full Version : Pattern Recipies From AJ's Videos

07-22-2013, 11:46 AM
I'm new here and glad i finally forum a forum for more advanced tactics than so much of the same old that is out there. As for my question, the title says it all but I bought and watched the videos (all 3 this weekend) and was wondering if there was a place on here that listed all the patterns and required materials so i can get to the vice. I know AJ goes over some of them in the videos but only 4 flies and if there was a way to have them all listed it would save em some time. I tried search as i imagine its been asked before but struck out. Any help would be appreciated.

What are the names of the flies? I have a little free time now that the hectic start to my summer is over.

Thanks Aaron, the ones i remember are the Drone stone, rubber legs, polish woven nymphs, tripple threat, walts worm and another cranefly larva, and then there were some smaller mayflies (bwo or sulphur cdc colar with the petijan tool) that i cant recall off the top of my head but was interested in tying. I loved that the full array really covered most situations where i would fish so it would be great to have them all if its not too much trouble.
thanks for the time, Don
