    Tom always very knowledgeable, I struggle with his clarity….. when a question is brought up on what weight choice of anything haha… it is obvious that there are so many variables when choosing. In depth and Toms personal choices broke down on the โ€œoneโ€ rod he takes to use all three fly lines would be helpful. Slow/medium/fast somewhere in between…. Large topic with so many variables, thanks for all your experience shared!!

    Would be great to hear if you’d pick different flies for stillwater in the Fall

  4. Peter Boyd on January 5, 2020 at 8:14 am

    Maybe you guys could live stream on YouTube too? Also, what color Woolly Buggers does Tom like to use in the fall besides yellow?

  5. Beth M on January 5, 2020 at 8:14 am

    Nicely done! I’m just starting out and will definitely add these flies.

  6. Gordy on January 5, 2020 at 8:15 am

    Nice flies Tom.

  7. Bill Corrales on January 5, 2020 at 8:16 am

    Tom! It’s Drunk and Disorderly not Down and Dirty. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That was pretty cool! Intelligent, common sense, observation, and decades of application. Love the way you teach, and love your Snow Shoe emerger. I didn’t have the recipe materials, didn’t even know what CDC was, but I tied it from your sbs in an old Orvis newsletter using grizzly hackle instead of CDC. It was an instant success from the first cast. Thanks for all your excellent instruction, tight lines to you sir!

    Tom, I have learned so much from you over the years. Thank you for being a wonderful ambassador for outdoorsmen and women, specifically those who fish.

  11. HENRY FORSTER on January 5, 2020 at 8:25 am

    What about-

    I’m kidding =)

  12. john kendall on January 5, 2020 at 8:28 am

    How in the world would you fish a size 24 dry fly I have enough trouble seeing a size 20 and sometimes even a size 18 depending on the color.

  13. jgraham140 on January 5, 2020 at 8:32 am

    Thanks for the post. I’ll be looking for any upcoming ones. I usually fish the Smoky Mountains or North Georgia in the fall and agree with your comments on the October Caddis. We have several different species of Pycnopsyche in the southeast and they begin emerging when the leaves begin to fall, not before. The larvae live in leaf beds and eat the fungi and bacteria that colonize the fallen leaves. I’ve caught trout on big #8-10 dry orange caddis, but only right at dusk. That fly was always useless during the day and, like you, I’ve never seen an October Caddis on the water, let alone eaten by a trout. In the Smokies, the very small blue winged olives and terrestrials (beetles and ants) are the best dries in the fall.

    Iโ€™d say Tom is the Bob Ross of fly fishing

  15. Tony Tredway on January 5, 2020 at 8:32 am

    I am listening but late in the game. You have taught me a great deal and I am grateful to you.

  16. edward constantini on January 5, 2020 at 8:34 am

    Tom, do you add weight to the Killer Bug?

  17. Ascendance Fishing on January 5, 2020 at 8:34 am

  21. james Truscello on January 5, 2020 at 8:36 am

    Didnโ€™t know you were doing these love it. Going to pudre canyon co. Mid August. Went once before, so different than our home tail waters. Are you familiar with it? What flies, set up would you start with?

  22. harleyman on January 5, 2020 at 8:37 am

    Tom: greetings from Denmark! Love your show!
    Most of the flie from this video you can find on (and try to tie it! ) :

  23. Henry Lau on January 5, 2020 at 8:40 am

    Love it! I am listening. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  24. TheFrogfeeder on January 5, 2020 at 8:44 am

    Man, what a day! Earlier while cleaning out my garage, I found some old fly fishing gear, hadnโ€™t seen it in years. Amongst the stuff was a brand spanking new Orvis Green Mountain combo my father gave me a LONG time ago. Just spooled it up and made a makeshift leader/tippet, and was coming on here looking for fly suggestions. Now I find a guy thatโ€™s been at Orvis for 42 years!!
    Hey I also found a brand new Orvis spinning rod, the butt is labeled โ€œ10ft salmon spin 8 1/4oz 0680โ€, I believe this rod is also from sometime in the 90s, but I canโ€™t find any info on Orvis website for spinning rods, Iโ€™d like to know the power/action…itโ€™s a graphite rod….imma give it a shot with a Diawa b400 I have laying around.
    Lol all my gear is older but still in good shape. Ok, Imma watch the video now, hit the fly shop tomoro, fishing by Monday evening ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. JR Quarnberg on January 5, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Am I the only one who this guy is making uncomfortable?

  26. Donald Burleyson on January 5, 2020 at 8:46 am

    Tom do you have to have a tail on the Griffith’s gnat?

  27. hatch7x on January 5, 2020 at 8:46 am

    Spot-on selection for the TN tailwaters, at least the small drys and nymphs. Very nice video.

  28. Des Farrell on January 5, 2020 at 8:48 am

    Things are bad when Iโ€™m jealous of another manโ€™s down and dirty fly.

  29. Pat on January 5, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Haha love the "this is my list" and screw your "what abouts." Every guy has his favorites. Thanks for sharing yours.

  30. Bill Corrales on January 5, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Tom, I used to work not far from you at The Vermont Country Store HQ. Probably bumped into you a time or two. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the Podcast, keep it up!

  31. Donald Donaldson on January 5, 2020 at 8:51 am

    I also like to fish.

  32. Wyatt Crane on January 5, 2020 at 8:51 am

    Can you make another video like this, but show flies for brook trout?

  33. eastwoodccj on January 5, 2020 at 8:55 am

    I’ve been listening to the podcast, now I’ve just run across you on youtube. The rabbit hole of fishing content continues!

  34. Matt McHugh on January 5, 2020 at 9:02 am

    Great job Tom always love the knowledge you offer I always learn something new!

  35. Cachi - on January 5, 2020 at 9:03 am

    Streaking Caddis…hmmm….
    Never heard of it but perhaps it works well.

  36. Scott Rhoades on January 5, 2020 at 9:04 am

    I don’t care what you use, as long as it is black marabou

  37. Alexander Gibson on January 5, 2020 at 9:06 am
