Tying Video: The Backwater Special

When I started creating this series of tying videos I told myself I was not going to tie this fly…but, I couldn’t resist. This fly is one naughty fish catching dude! I fish this fly for multiple species of fish and tie it in a number of different color combos. The fly itself is extremely light and lands very soft on the water. This makes it a great fly for sight fishing spooky laid up reds, snook, and gator trout.

If you have any questions about the steps or materials needed to properly tie this fly. Please leave a comment below or shoot me an email. All my contact info is listed in the “Contact” tab at the top of the page. Thanks for watching. IMG_0016_1

Tight lines,

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
