TROUTS TIES // How to Tie the Root Beer Ice with Eric Schmidt

Ivan Orsic / Apr 15, 2022

It's Blue-Winged Olive season. With that in mind, Trouts own Eric Schmidt swung by the studio to tie a BWO nymph pattern he developed with a friend - the Root Beer Ice. Inspired by the Ice Series of flies by Larry Kingery, the Root Beer Ice is a flashy attractor of a Blue Winged Olive nymph. It's a great option for your favorite freestone this time of year.
