Fly Tying...The Fire Bird

The Fire Bird is a spin-off on the classic Bird’s Nest. In it’s original form the Bird’s Nest is a super buggy pattern that is a fairly quick tie. Loon loves quick ties and buggy patterns! With the easy addition of a hot spot using the Loon Outdoors UV Fly Paint, this fly gains just a little bit of flare without compromising the parts of the classic that we love. Although it’s tied unweighted here, this fly would work well with a bead head especially if it is being fished by itself in deeper water.
