“Blane Chocklett is a fisherman’s fly designer. His sense of what makes a fly work is the absolute best ever, and he has the creativity to fulfill his ideas as I’ve never seen before. Blane’s designs cross over from fresh to saltwater with ease. He works an idea all the way until it’s right— then improves it. And the flies in this book are only the beginning...”
—Bob Popovics, author of Pop Fleyes and Fleye Design
Game Changer flies have completely revolutionized how fly anglers approach pressured and wary fish around the world. Tied on a series of interconnecting spines, these flies can be drawn through the water with a serpentine swimming action or made to glide and jacknife in the water with hard strips—movements that predatory fish find irresistable. In this book, from one of the most creative and visionary minds in fly tying and fly fishing, author Blane Chocklett shares his tips and techniques for getting maximum movement out of these flies, both at the vise and on the water. In addition to covering popular patterns such as the Finesse Changer and Feather Game Changer, Chocklett traces the evolution of his search for the ultimate pattern, and takes readers along his journey of discovery, by beginning with his Gummy Minnow and ending the book with perhaps the most effective fly ever designed for apex predators, the Hybrid Changer.
• Step-by-step tying instructions for 20 flies • Chapter covering hooks, shanks, brushes, and other critical materials
• Fishing techniques, including tips on retrieves and casting large flies • Close-ups of Chocklett’s favorite patterns • Detailed information on building brushes
