The Tennessee Bacon

7 comments / Posted on / by


This big bite of lard fried southern trout streamer is too good to resist.

I’ve seen the TN Bacon in action and I’m a believer. Big brown trout just can’t resist taking a bite. Created for eastern Tennessee tailgaters like the South Holston, this fly catches big fish everywhere I’ve used it. I mean, who doesn’t love bacon?

Originated by Chase Pritchett of American Made Flies, this pattern is a true original. Like all of AMF’s flies it’s hand tied by Chase using only quality materials. I’m super excited that he has agreed to share his techniques with us. Chase is an amazing tyer. You can’t help but learn something.

Watch this video and learn to tie American Made Flies, Tennessee Bacon.

  1. I am a firm believer in AMF and Chase. Chase is a superb tier and fisherman. He has boxes of creations that are original, top-notch, and tied to perfection. Cannot beat American made with quality hooks and materials by someone you trust.

  2. I wish you would include a source from wish we could buy these from as not all of us tie our own yet! Thanks!
