Teddys Tackle Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Supply
These patterns have been developed locally for Vancouver Island and interior British Columbia fishing. We have tied and fished most of these patterns ourselves.  Join our Wednesday evening fly tying sessions from 7:00 - 9:00 and try some of these out with us!
Articulated Damsel 1/14/2015
This pattern is from Ted. He first tied it with Tom McConnell and Norm McKenzie at an open house at the Fresh Water Fisheries Eco-Centre in Duncan many years ago.
Atherton Nymph 7/6/2014
A mayfly nymph with a bright blue wingcase.
Burlap Fly 7/6/2014
Another pattern from Frank Norris. This fly looks good in the water and fishes well.
Bushwacker 7/8/2014
This is an easy to tie variation of a caddis pupa pattern.
Caddis Pupa 7/8/2014
Originated by Paul Rickard, this fly works well on interior lakes in late Spring, early Summer.
Chilcott Nymph 7/6/2014
from Dave Chilcott who did very well with this fly on a mild January morning.
Diawl Bach 7/6/2014
This is one of the patterns Kathy Chilcott demonstrated for our fly tying group in Parksville.
Donovans Sparkle Snail 7/6/2014
This fly comes from the president of the Cowichan Fly Fishers, Donovan Lynch. A similar pattern can be found in "Fly Patterns for Stillwaters" by Phil Rowley.
Dragon Nymph with yarn 5/28/2021
This is based on a pattern by Ken Thorne. Looks good enough to eat (if youre a trout!)
Flash Back Pheasant Tail Nymph 7/6/2014
Another pattern from Kathy Chilcott.
Frenchie 4/16/2019
Beverly's Nymph - This is a variation of the Frenchie. Beverly was successful with this on a Vancouver Island river in May 2015. Easy to tie. A detailed pattern suitable for beginners.
Full Back Dragon 7/6/2014
This is a version of the Full Back fly. Look at photos of the Dragon Fly Nymph to get the idea of how fat to make the body. This should work well on our local lakes and also in the Interior of BC.
Ken Bakers Mayfly Nymph 7/8/2014
Thanks to Terry Bragg for this pattern. This fly was developed for Interior lakes in May or June but should also work well on Vancouver Island.
March Brown Nymph 7/8/2014
Try this fly on the Cowichan River in early Spring.
Moose Mane Chironomid 7/8/2014
This pattern was designed by Ken Thorne. We have been using it as a nymph/emerger just below the surface on a floating line. It has done well for us on local lakes.
Ostrich Damsel Nymph 2/20/2016
Try this pattern in different sizes and different shades of olive or tan depending on where and when you are fishing.
Prince Nymph 4/16/2019
The Prince is by far the most popular fly for fishing local rivers, including the Cowichan.
Ted's 52 Buick 7/6/2014
Wiggle Nymph 7/6/2014
This articulated nymph has a second hook shaft trailing the main hook on a piece of monofilament giving good tail movement.\r\nThanks to Mike Nadeau for this pattern.
Yarn Damsel Nymph 2/20/2016
This is a simple, effective pattern.
