Silvey's Super Sinker Jig

Silvey's  Super Sinker Jig

"I can tie this with anything, what do you have in your trashcan? This is my trash fly" Brian Silvey

Brian Silvey is the master of the Dry Dropper. I am always prying into his personal business to find out what fly or flies he's been using. I would guess that after years of asking him that question 90% of the time he lands on Silvey's BH Caddis Pupa or the Super Sinker.

 

When Brian was here last week we got him to sit down and tie a couple of flies. When he was trying to figure out what to tie, I requested a jig and something good. I asked Brian what he needed and he said let me look in the trash and see what you have, "This is a trash fly".

 

So without further ado let introduce you to Brian's Super Sinker Jig. As well as the Recipe there is a video and a tying kit. The Kit includes enough material to tie 40 flies and as usual each kit gets a custom tied fly for a demo. Kits are limited at this point so first come first served.
