How To Rig A Leader With Two Dry Flies

This short fishing video shows how to rig your leader with two dry flies on the same line. Using a Blood Knot Dropper for this set up is the best way I have found to keep your dry flies floating and acting naturally. Consider placing the largest dry fly at the end of the line and the smaller off the dropper knot.

Fishing from the boat with double dries is my favorite way to catch trout. If you would like to pitch dry flies at the bank and watch trout after trout come up and eat them, the Roaring Fork River in Colorado is the place to be. Go to for information and booking.

    Great video bro. Thank you for the tip, it will come in handy for fishing a small steam that I am learning to Dry Fly on, the Rupurapu Stream here in New Zealand.

    Tying the first blood knot takes me as long as it took you to the the whole setup. Thanks for the video

    one thing i might add to this is that when tying a double dry fly set up like this with a Dangler fly as i would call it, your bigger fly should always be the last fly on and your smaller fly should be the dangling fly hung above it it just turns over your fly better, and when the heavier one is above and smaller below youll find more tangles and not as nice a lay out and turn over of the leader =)

    Your video is very good. Did you ever try doing this with a triple surgeon’s knot or do you think that it’s not strong enough? Same extra leader extension idea is used. I just think that it’s quicker.

    Little out of focus, little too far out of the frame during the tying…..any chance of this being re-done with HD equipment?

    Very good thank you; I would also add one thing: moisten your leader/tippet materials before cinching the knots. Less burn to the materials. Thanks again.

    *I have got both the leaders and tippet from Bozeman FlyWorks and>>>**** have been highly impressed with both in fooling even the wariest trout on one of the most technical trout tailwaters in the country.*
