This in-depth DVD production focuses on a less understood but highly significant trout food, the Dobsonfly Larvae.

Common not only in most New Zealand rivers but also around the world, this insect has many regional names such as; Hellgrammite, Creeper, Toe biter, Black Creeper, Alderfly , Fishfly  and Lace Wing to name a few. These aquatic insects due to their larger size are keenly sort after by trout and other freshwater species.

The seeds for this production began in 1975 when my passion for backcountry river fishing started. I discovered then how widespread and important the Dobsonfly larvae were playing such a huge role in both freshwater ecology and a trout's diet. Through the many years since, as both a full time fly fishing guide and trout fly developer, these practical observations and trout fly evolutions are fully encompassed in this resulting production. I am confident this DVD will give you a deeper insight not only into Dobsonfly Larvae but also trout fly design, a process that is such a rewarding aspect of fly fishing.

X STREAMER Volume 1 ( 2 DVD set ) 2015

 An exploration of original Streamers - Methods and approaches

DVD 1 =  Silveries - Smelt

51 minutes running time

These small bait fish are common in most low country rivers, coastal lagoons, river mouths as well as in some inland lakes such as Lakes Taupo and Rotorua. Trout feed avidly on Smelt so it’s been a personal long term focus to develop better  imitations that started way back in 1987 . This DVD features spectacular footage of trout feeding on smelt, underwater footage combined with approaches to get better results in lakes, and  slow and fast flow river situations. Three highly successful and original patterns that are all fun to tie and time tested are very adaptable. It is important to note similar baitfish are found though out the world in both fresh and salt water environments so these patterns and principles go beyond just being for trout. This in depth production took years!

DVD 2  = Intro - Riffle Rouser - Dead Drift Streamers - Micro Streamers     

43 minutes running time

The Riffle Rouser  is an amazing innovative streamer for fishing runs and riffles. It’s unique profile and two-fold versatile action in the water make it a winner and a heck of a lot of fun to fish and tie. Draws inspiration from spin patterns and action. A Goer !!!!

Here fully explained and demonstrated this also revealed an amazingly fun pattern that really works wonders.
