Black Magic Tying Guide

When no other fly is working for you, this Black Magic fly will do the business throughout the season and pull up both trout and grayling!  Just add floatant to the hackle and wing post and watch it go!

Part of our North Country dry fly patterns, they are designed around traditional yorkshire patterns for rainbow & brown trout. North Country and Clyde Style fly patterns are lightly dressed (traditionalists say 1.5 turns of hackle). Key is a very lightly dressed body and hackles. These fly patterns are deadly.
