Bonus Friday Video: Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!


Written by: Phil Monahan

Our favorite fly-tying-video maker, Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions, has turned his lens on the underwater life of his home stream. He took a benthic sample from the South Branch of the Raritan River—near Califon, New Jersey—today, and then filmed the results. What did he find? How about some early black stoneflies, Isonychia, and scuds. But there’s more! Can you identify any of these creatures?

    Was the one with the gills on its abdomen and the three feathery tails a damselfly nymph? It certainly was a good swimmer! Also noticed several different types of caddis, a cased caddis and a free living caddis. Really cool stuff. Gives me some tying ideas, for sure!
