Friday Five: 5/18/18

Last week was a bit heavy on the video end of things, so we’ve tried to balance it out more this week. We have a few articles, the newest issue of S.C.O.F. magazine, and some videos for you to enjoy. Grab your cup of coffee, get comfortable, and dig in!

The Hi-Vis Baetis (Anglers All)

This is a good, visible pattern for when the lighting gets difficult on the stream.

Brooks’ Platinum Blonde (Josh Varner)

Josh Varner shows how to tie a classic streamer pattern that was originally for Atlantic salmon but has since been adapted for a variety of species. It also was one of the original big streamers for trout! Since it’s on the easier end of the tying spectrum and would be worth trying out.
