April Vokey Explains How to Use Rhea When Tying Streamers

We recommend using rhea in flies of all sizes, and encourage anglers to use them in patterns that use heron, marabou, faux hair, ostrich, and anything else that is used for length/movement. While rhea is famed for its length, remember that small, short and sparse flies can sometimes be even more appealing to fish, and so we encourage anglers to try using rhea in smaller, more traditional patterns as well.

Let's help 16 people get access to clean water!

With the recent launch of The Fly Fishing Dictionary, we wanted to do something special for those in need. We are looking to raise $500 to help provide 16 people with clean water. Learn more about Charity Water here.
