Instructor: Chad Bryson

This was Capt. Chad Bryson\'s first articulated fly for big trout and he takes you step-by-step through the tying process in this In The Spread fishing video. It was designed out a necessity to produce bigger fish than other guides at the time. Chad was homeless (aka filthy) and begging a big trout to eat something. A lot has changed since then, but the Filthy Beggar still catches big trout consistently.

The freshwater apex predators, those elusive brown trout and muskie, and he's been on their trail for decades.
