Fly Tying Video: Kelly Oikawa Brown Drake

Kelly’s Brown Drake is one of the best drakes out there but you’ll have to tie it because you won’t find it in the bins. Most big bugs don’t get techy but Kelly does and all the materials in this fly shows off his fishiness. The realistic wood duck tail, biot body, and CDC wing gives anglers with this pattern an advantage over standard "in the bin" patterns.
