Casey’s Stillwater Searcher Fly Tying Video

This is my favourite pattern to use when I am trying to figure out “what’s working” on a particular lake. It’s a variation of a Carey Special, but I tie it with more of a leech in mind with a thin profile. It’s an incredibly simple pattern that only uses two materials, but don’t let its simplicity take away from the fact that this is a very effective fly.
