Fly of the Week: RS2 by Rim Chung

For this week I'm going with something a little different. I'll admit that this week I was scratching my head on what fly to tie up for the FotW, and lucky (for me) someone posted about this fly on one of the forums. I've never fished it, but everyone is coming out of the woodwork on how this fly is the bee's knees, and is consider by many to be the official fly of Colorado (hell, it could be the official fly of CO for all I know; it seems to be that good.)

Someone was gracious enough to have posted a video on how to tie it, so I'm going to cop-out and post it here.

It's a simple tie, 40 Helen's agree that this is the fly to have, and it's as old as dirt. So who am I to stand in the way of destiny?

PS: if the video is to small, the heading is a link to the Youtube page.


  1. Good bug for sure, Yea you could call it official fly of RAD-O, and It goes back quite a few years, The variations probably out fish the origonals to be honest.

  2. That's what I've heard; that this is one of those "needs to be in the box" flies in a wide assortment of colors.
