Classic Podcast: The Golden Rules of Fly-Tying with Dave Klausmeyer

Editor’s Note: Tom’s off filming episodes of Season 2 of “The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing” TV show, so here’s a great podcast from the archives.

This week, the main part of the podcast is a long interview with Dave Klausmeyer, editor of Fly Tyer Magazine. He talks about his Golden Rules of Fly Tying and then also gives his 10 Cannot-Do-Without natural and synthetic materials. If you keep count, you will find that Klausmeyer is even worse at addition than I am.

In The Fly Box, we ramble from fishing soft hackles to checking fly lines and backing for damage. There are also a couple questions about finding big rainbow trout feeding in still, shallow water. And we have a couple great lists of suggestions from listeners—one on ways to carry a second rod when wading; the other on “suggestions for a novice from a kinda novice.” If I keep getting great responses like this from listeners, I can let them take over the whole podcast.

  1. Dave Allbaugh specializes in wet flies especially soft hackles. He is based in central Pa. He might be a good guest.

  2. I second Bryan’s request. It would be great to see what the best fly he uses looks like. Thank you for the podcast!
